Thai Chicken Skewers

When you're talking this easy for a delicious recipe, then you're going to be making these Thai chicken skewers. If you want to substitute something like shrimp, pork, lamb or beef, then that's up to you!

Skewered Chicken

When you skewer your check, you'll be working with small chunks of meat. That means it's going to cook faster. But, just remember that the internal temperature of cooked chicken is 165 degrees. So pull out your meat thermometer and double check!

Chicken Kabab

Chicken kabab or chicken skewer/ They're basically the same thing. What I love about this recipe is that you've got the sweet and savory working together with the spice and heat of the red curry.

Grilled Chicken Curry

These chicken skewers are perfect for the grill, too. Just remember to soak wooden skewers well. Drench them with moisture. Or better yet, pull out your metal skewers for a scorching hot grill or live fire.

What is Kebab

It's really simple as to what defines a kebab. It's essentially cubes of meat cooked with vegetables. And, it's all on a skewer. Yes, if you want to let the skewers marinade in the sauce or paste that's going to intensify the flavors.

According to some sources, kebab is generally considered an Arabic-origin meat dish. Probably coming from peasants who learned early on to cook their meats and vegetables on what was available in their surrounds, sticks.

Curry Kebabs

Now curry is a wonderful marinade for these chicken skewers. There are differences not only in color of curry paste but also flavor profiles. Red curry is made from dried red chillies, which is the base for the paste. While green paste has more coriander roots, hence the green hue, and is much sweeter. Green curry is also made with young chillies, while the red curry is from the older dried red chillies.

Chicken Skewers Thai

Thai curies usually are spicy. Yellow seems to be the lesser of the spiciness. I use dried yellow curry often in my jasmine rice. Along with a few strands of saffron, the cooked rice has this rich golden hue that's just gorgeous.
