Thai Green Curry Chicken Skewers Recipe
Men are tricky to buy gifts for - especially fathers. They seem to have everything they need and what they don’t have is completely out of reach of my pocket. I’m reminded that a well-fed man is a happy man and I organise a selection of tasty treats that will illustrate my appreciation of all he’s done for me.
And if it’s a braai your father is wanting, no matter the weather, then add Thai marinated chicken skewers to your menu. Skewers are inexpensive to buy and with a little imagination you can create your own combinations. A smart way to use left-overs.
Yields : 9
9 Wooden Skewers
30 g Basil
30 g Coriander
5 ml Cumin
3 Green Chillies
1 small Leek
3 medium Garlic Cloves
1 T finely grated Ginger
1 tin Coconut Milk
Salt and Pepper
520 g or 6 small Chicken Breasts
1 punnet Baby Marrow
1) Liquidise basil, coriander, cumin, chillies, leeks, garlic and ginger with the coconut milk and season with salt and pepper.
2) Cut chicken breast into small bite size pieces
3) Place chicken breast pieces into liquidised mixture (chef’s note: this same quantity of marinate can be used for 1 kg or so of chicken) and marinate for a few hours
4) Soak Skewers in water until use
5) Cut baby marrow into pieces
6) Take pieces of chicken out of marinade
7) Place a piece of baby marrow at the base of the skewer. Top with three pieces of chicken, then a baby marrow and then three more chicken pieces and finish with a piece of baby marrow
8) Place on braai and cook until done. Alternatively, heat a pan and pan sear in a little butter. Finish off the cooking in a hot oven (180ͦC) for about 15 minutes turning over after half time. Serve with lemon wedges
