Directions

  1. In a medium bowl, stir together chicken, lime juice, brown sugar, ginger, salt, garlic and turmeric; cover and refrigerate for 30 min. Thread 1 piece of chicken onto the end of each skewer.

  2. Peanut Sauce: Meanwhile, in a small saucepan over medium heat, stir together peanut butter, coconut milk, lime zest, lime juice, soy sauce, brown sugar, ginger and hot pepper flakes. Stir continuously until sauce is smooth and thickened, about 5 min.
