Need help with a recipe again!

  Re: (...)
Can't seem to find the recipe for coconut chicken skewers that I picked for my b-day dinner a few years ago. I have done a search on the forum and in the back issue library. I probably don't have the right name.

Blane, I think you made it this past week...

Maryann, it's in the Grilling Vol 4 book. I'll post the recipe if you don't have that book. They're called Coconut-Marinated Chicken Kebabs.

It's one of my favorite recipes!

I wonder why they haven't added the search feature to the books section of the library? I need to add this recipe to the next menu.

Daphne, that was how I looked it up, with the search feature. Just make sure that you click on the "books" tab before typing in your search.

If you still can't search, make sure you have access to your books online. I had to call because a few were missing from my list.

I went back and read the info at the top my "Books" page and noticed that you could buy the digital version of your books. I have not done that, so I can only "Browse" my "Books". So I don't have the search feature for them. I'll have to think about that.

I've been wondering why I haven't ever made this with love of all things shrimp. Just figured it out. I don't own that book! LOL! Could one of you share the recipe? I have it on next week's menu.

Daphne, it's a chicken recipe. I added the pineapple rice side that goes with this, a must!


Coconut-marinated chicken kebabs

Use a spoon to scrape out the jalapeños’ seeds and pith — much of their spicy
heat is contained in them. Wear gloves to protect your hands.

Makes 4 kebabs
Total time: 45 minutes

11/4 lb. boneless, skinless chicken
breast halves
1/2 lb. fresh pineapple
1 large green bell pepper
1 can coconut milk (14 oz.)
1/2 cup sugar
2 jalapeños, seeded and diced
1 tsp. kosher salt
Juice of 1 lime

Preheat grill to medium-high.

Prepare chicken, pineapple,
and bell pepper, cutting each
into 2-inch chunks (you’ll need
12 pieces of chicken and 8 pieces
each of pineapple and bell pepper).
Place chunks in a large resealable
plastic bag.

Combine coconut milk, sugar,
jalapeños, salt, and lime juice for
the marinade in a glass measuring
cup with a pour spout. Add half the
marinade to the bag and let stand
for 15 minutes; reserve remaining
marinade for basting the kebabs.

Alternately thread 3 pieces
of chicken and 2 pieces each of
pineapple and bell pepper onto
2 soaked wooden skewers as
shown, right, starting and ending
with chunks of chicken. Repeat
with remaining chicken, pineapple,
and bell pepper to make 4 kebabs.

Grill kebabs, covered, until chicken
is cooked through, 8–10 minutes
per side, basting with reserved
marinade every 3 minutes.

Per kebab: 213 cal; 3g total fat (2g sat); 82mg chol;
334mg sodium; 11g carb; 1g fiber; 33g protein






Pineapple rice

The fruity flavor of the rice combined
with the flavor of coconut chicken is
like a bite of a piña colada.

Makes 4 servings (3 cups)
Total time: 25 minutes

1 cup water
1 can pineapple juice (6 oz.)
2 tsp. sugar
1 tsp. unsalted butter
1/2 tsp. kosher salt
1/2 tsp. red pepper flakes
1 cup dry basmati or
jasmine rice
Juice of 1/2 a lime
Chopped fresh cilantro

Bring water, pineapple juice, sugar,
butter, salt, and pepper flakes to
a boil in a saucepan. Stir in rice,
cover, reduce heat to low, and
simmer 15 minutes. Remove pan
from heat, let sit 5 minutes, then
fluff rice with a fork.

Stir in lime juice and cilantro.

Per serving: 217 cal; 1g total fat (1g sat); 3mg chol;
241mg sodium; 53g carb; 1g fiber; 3g protein

I'm crazy! LOL! But don't you do a coconut shrimp dish, too? Or has it been chicken all along?

Interesting! I think I have everything for this except the jalapeño. THANKS!
