  • 2 teaspoons Frontier Crushed Red Chili Peppers 1.20 oz.
  • 1 teaspoon Frontier Organic Curry Powder 1.90 oz.
  • 1 teaspoon Frontier Organic Garlic Powder 2.33 oz.
  • 1/4 teaspoon Frontier Coarse Sea Salt 5 lb.
  • 2 large chicken breasts, cut into thin strips
  • 1/2 cup whole milk plain yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons honey, divided
  • 1/2 cup full-fat canned coconut milk
  • 1/3 cup crunchy peanut butter (creamy also works)
  • 2 teaspoons fresh ginger, peeled and grated
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • Chopped peanuts and fresh cilantro, for garnish


1. In a small blender, combine yogurt, soy sauce, 1 tablespoon honey, 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes, ½ teaspoon curry powder, garlic powder and salt. Blend until smooth. Place chicken strips in a zip-lock bag or sealable container and refrigerate for at least 1 hour, up to 12 hours.

2. In blender, combine coconut milk, peanut butter, ginger, garlic, rice vinegar, and remaining 1 tablespoon honey, ½ teaspoon curry powder and 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes. Blend until smooth. Transfer to a jar and refrigerate until ready to use. Sauce will thicken as it refrigerates.

3. Soak 6 wooden skewers for 30 minutes. (Metal skewers can be used instead, no soaking needed).

4. Pat skewers dry, thread chicken strips onto skewers, then place on a plate.

5. Spray or brush the grill grates with olive oil. Preheat grill, covered, to medium heat (350 to 375 degrees).

6. Place chicken skewers on hot grill and cover. Cook 1 to 2 minutes, or until grill marks appear. Using tongs, carefully flip skewers and grill another 1 to 2 minutes. Continue grilling and flipping every minute or so until chicken is cooked through.

7. Transfer to a serving platter and serve with peanut sauce, peanuts and cilantro.

To make this recipe dairy-free, substitute coconut milk for the yogurt. To make this recipe in stages, prepare the peanut sauce and marinate the chicken ahead of time. If serving more than 3 people, increase amount of meat to 3 chicken breasts (you will still have enough marinade for 3 chicken breasts, so no need to increase the portions on the marinade).
