Author's Notes

If you can’t find coconut cream, you can substitute it with coconut milk however it will not have as strong a coconut flavor and the consistency of the marinade may be runnier. If you use coconut milk, try to find a higher fat content coconut milk and try to find a coconut milk with just 2 ingredients in it – coconut extract and water. Any coconut milk that has chemicals (ie. polysorbate80) tastes less coconutty. This recipe works great with pork as well. Try switching up the chicken for chunks of pork shoulder! When it comes to chicken, I usually prefer dark meat over white meat because it has more flavor albeit less healthier. If you choose to use chicken breast, I find brining it (1 1/2 tablespoons of salt with 4 cups of water) for a few hours in a salt water, prior to marinating it makes the chicken breast less dry. Chicken skin is added flavor and texture, but it can be removed to make the chicken skewers a bit healthier.

Directions

HIDE IMAGES
Step 1
In a small bowl, combine Coconut Cream (1/3 cup) , Natural Peanut Butter (2 Tbsp) , Maple Syrup (1 tsp) , Dark Soy Sauce (1 tsp) , Sesame Oil (1 tsp) , Chili Oil (1 tsp) and mix well.
Step 2
Set aside until the chicken skewers are ready to be served.
Step 3
If you are using wooden skewers, in a tall cup, add water and soak the back ends (the ends that are not pointy) so they don’t burn on the grill.
Step 4
Cut the Chicken Thighs (2.2 lb) up into 1×1-inch chunks and set it in a bowl.
Step 5
Using your preferred method (mortar and pestle, food processor, or finely chop by hand) chop the Garlic (2 cloves) and Fresh Ginger (4 slices) up as finely as you can and add it to the chicken.
Step 6
Add the Soy Sauce (2 Tbsp) , Dark Soy Sauce (1 Tbsp) , Coconut Cream (2 Tbsp) , Granulated Sugar (2 Tbsp) , Oyster Sauce (1 Tbsp) into the bowl and mix everything together.
Step 7
Let it marinade in the bowl for 1-2 hours in the fridge.
Step 8
Remove them from the fridge 30 minutes before you are about to grill them.
Step 9
Skewer the chicken. You may need to skewer some pieces twice so that there are not a lot of loose pieces. The loose pieces usually burn the quickest, so you want the meat to be snug with the skewers.
Step 10
In a small bowl, combine the Coconut Cream (1/4 cup) , Honey (1 1/2 Tbsp) , Soy Sauce (1 tsp) and set aside for glazing the chicken at the very end.
Step 11
Set the charcoal or gas grill to approximately 500 degrees F (260 degrees C).
Step 12
When the grill has reached the temperature, add the skewers on the grill. You want to cook them over direct heat.
Step 13
Flip them every 2-3 minutes, 4-5 times or for approximately 15-18 minutes. Do not leave them un-attended, they will burn quickly. Once the meat has browned and charred over the direct heat for 15 minutes, it should feel a bit more solid on the stick and should be cooked.
Step 14
Brush on the coconut cream glaze and flip them every minute, 2-3 times to get that sweet and sticky caramelized char.
Step 15
Serve over a bed of green lettuce with the peanut sauce. Enjoy!
