Description

A pineapple, coconut milk marinade serves double duty as a tenderizer and, once cooked down, a rich, spicy sauce to drizzle over the grilled kebabs. A platter of jasmine or basmati rice studded with shredded coconut and just a dash of curry powder is a great base for the sweet and slightly spicy skewers. They’re also a tasty appetizer course, served with a chilled fruity Sauvignon Blanc or Viognier. 

Ingredients

1 cup
coconut milk
1/2 cup
juice, pineapple
2 tablespoons
lime juice
2 tablespoons
honey
2 tablespoons
sriracha
2 tablespoons
soy sauce
2
bell pepper, red (cored and cut into 1 1/2'' cubes)
1
pineapple (peeled, cored and cut into 1 1/2'' cubes)
4
chicken breast (boneless and skinless)

Instructions

In a medium bowl, mix the coconut milk, pineapple juice, lime juice, honey, Sriracha sauce and soy sauce. Reserve.
Add pineapple and pepper to the marinade. Slice each chicken breast into thirds lengthwise and widthwise into 9 similar-sized pieces. Place in the marinade and toss to coat, then refrigerate, covered, for at least 3 hours and up to 24 hours.
Heat the grill and thread the chicken, peppers and pineapple onto 6 skewers, alternating the ingredients. Put the leftover marinade in a small pot and bring it to a vigorous boil (at least 2 minutes for food safety purposes), and cook until a meat or kitchen thermometer reads 165°F and sauce has reduced and thickened. Keep warm until ready to serve.
When the grill is hot, use tongs to dip a wad of paper towel into a tablespoon of vegetable oil and coat the hot grill with it. Place the skewers on the grill and cook for about 5 minutes per side, moving the skewers to a cooler part of the grill if the pineapple and chicken show signs of burning. Serve the skewers drizzled with the sauce.
