Yet another great appetizer for your New Year's party. Great dish for one hand while the other holds the main event - cocktail! Trim and marinade the chicken pieces a day ahead and quickly cook before guests arrive.


1 lb boneless chicken breast halves
2 tbl soy sauce
2 tbl fresh lemon juice
1 tbl canola oil
2 medium garlic cloves, minced
1/2 tsp curry
1/3 cup crunchy peanut butter
1/3 cup unsweetened coconut milk
1 tsp brown sugar
1/8 tsp cayenne
About 30 bamboo skewers soaked in water for about 20 minute

Cut the chicken into about 24-30 pieces of the same size. In a bowl, combine 1 tbl soy sauce, and 1 tbl lemon juice with oil, garlic, curry, 1/2 tsp salt and a few twists of your pepper grinder. Add chicken and toss well to coat. Let marinade overnight.

In a sauce pan, combine remaining tbl soy sauce, and lemon juice with the peanut butter, coconut milk, brown sugar, cayenne and 1/4 tsp salt.

Place oven rack as close to the broiler as safely possible and heat on high. Thread one piece of chicken on the end of each skewer. Broil in a single layer turning the skewers once. Cooking time should be about 6-8 minutes. While the chicken cooks, warm the sauce. If it seems to thick add a tbl of water.

Let chicken cool slightly and serve with peanut sauce. Really easy and not too time consuming.

Ring it in!
