Cilantro Thai Chicken Skewers with Cucumber Yogurt Dipping SauceThese chicken skewers are fantastic!  The Cilantro and Thai flavor of the chicken is so good complemented with the cucumber yogurt sauce for dipping (which is an authentic and incredibly delicious sauce from our friend from India).  I am completely in love with Thai and Indian flavor dishes, if you have been too nervous to step out of your food comfort zone these skewers are a safe and great place to start.  Try them out for your next BBQ, you will not be disappointed!  Great as an appetizer or a main dish.  The best part is that there is so much flavor and so few calories!!

    What did you serve as side dish(es) with this? I’m looking forward to trying them with something that will greatly complement this dish.

    • Emily says:

      These would be great with a salad or potato dish as a side. Have you tried our Parmesan Potato Halves?

    They would honestly be best with our Indain Coconut Rice, but that recipe is exclusive to our cookbook (coming out in just a few weeks!)

  3. Kay says:

    Thank you, Emily. I found a couple of recipes on-line I think will work. I just found your website recently and will keep an eye out for your cookbook (I need another to add to my “collection!”) I guess it will be announced on your website…..I’ll be keeping an eye out. Thanks again for the quick response.

    Just wanted to say this was the first recipe we’ve tried from your website and we loved it. I was a little concerned that there was so little liquid in the marinade and added some lemon juice. Ended up very tasty!

    I found these on pinterest and am dying to try these. I have to say I am having a hard time reading the recipe with the background. I hope it prints better.
