This simple but delicious low-carb main dish can be cooked in the oven or grilled outdoors. Serve with vegetables or salad on the side to create a healthy meal.

Ingredients

  • 1 lb. boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 10 wooden skewers
  • 1 scallion (thinly sliced)

Marinade:

  • ½ cup coconut milk
  • 3 cloves minced garlic
  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • ½ teaspoon curry powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper

Sauce:

  • ¼ cup natural peanut butter
  • 3 cloves minced garlic
  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice

Directions

In a large bowl, combine all marinade ingredients and stir well. Cut chicken breasts into 1-inch cubes and add them to the marinade, stirring to coat. Cover and refrigerate for at least six hours. Thread chicken cubes onto the skewers, leaving room for handling. Place them in a single layer on a large baking sheet. Bake at 450 degrees for 10 minutes, flip the skewers, and then bake another five minutes or until cooked through.

While waiting for the chicken to cook, add all sauce ingredients to a small saucepan. Whisk together for a few minutes over medium-low heat until smooth. Keep warm over low heat, stirring occasionally. Transfer chicken skewers to a serving plate. Brush peanut sauce over the chicken. Top with sliced scallions. Serve while warm.
