    ½ tsp ground cumin

    ½ tsp ground coriander

    ½ tsp ground cinnamon

    2 cloves garlic, roughly chopped

    ½ cup light coconut milk

    3 jalapeño chile peppers, seeded and roughly chopped

    ¼ cup fresh cilantro

    1 1½-inch piece fresh ginger, roughly chopped

    Juice of 1 lime

    ¼ tsp sea salt

    20 oz boneless, skinless chicken breasts, pounded to ¼-inch thickness and sliced
    into 16 pieces

    1 bell pepper (red, yellow or orange), cut into 2-inch chunks


  • 8 wooden bamboo skewers, soaked (Tip: Soak for at least 20 minutes, or up to 3 hours.)


1. In a small skillet, heat ½ tsp oil on medium. Add onion, curry powder, turmeric, cumin, coriander and cinnamon and sauté, stirring often, for 5 minutes.

2. Transfer onion mixture to a blender and add garlic, milk, jalapeño, cilantro, ginger, lime juice and salt. Blend until smooth. Transfer to a large shallow dish;
add chicken and toss to coat. Refrigerate
