Thai chicken skewers with coconut dipping sauce

These scrumptious Thai chicken skewers are steeped in an aromatic, creamy marinade before being cooked under a hot grill. A great dish for sharing, they're best served with a fiery coconut dipping sauce and fresh lime wedges.

Prep time: 15 minutes

Cook time: 15 minutes

Servings: 4 people

Preparation

1. Preheat the grill to high. Blitz together in a small blender the lemongrass, chilli, ginger, garlic, coriander, lime zest and blend to a smooth paste. Add the coconut cream and lime juice and blitz again. Season well.

2. Put the chicken pieces into a large bowl, add the marinade, stir so that it is all well coated and then leave covered in the fridge for 10 minutes, or overnight if possible.

3. Thread the marinated chicken onto 4 metal skewers, drizzle with a little olive oil, put onto a baking sheet and grill for 15 minutes, turning half way through to ensure even cooking.

4. For the dipping sauce, whisk all the ingredients in a bowl until combined. Serve the skewers hot, with the sauce to dip into and lime wedges to squeeze over.

Tip: You can make the skewers ahead and marinade for up to 24 hours covered in the fridge. The sauce can also be made and chilled for up to 2 days covered in the fridge.
