These easy-to-make Thai Chicken Skewers with Peanut Sauce start with a versatile coconut milk mixture that does double duty - half is used to marinate the chicken, and the other half serves as a base for the peanutty dipping sauce. As a bonus, these grilled skewers are quick enough to serve on a busy weeknight. Hot steamed rice and your favourite cooked fresh vegetables make the perfect sides.
