Chai Curry Chicken Kabobs and Garden Cilantro Rice – #HotSummerEats

Chai Chup Chicken Kabobs and Garden Cilantro Rice | Famished Fish, Finicky Shark

I’ve been grilling it up indoors for #HotSummerEats. I must admit, I get a little envious when my husband barbecues on the outdoor grill for the family. The cool calmness of babysitting food over a wild flame is the epitome of summer.
But lo I am tied to my indoor griddle as our backyard grill must be put to rest.

But I like it! I feel like I have power over the food. “I rotate you this way and you cook that way.” It’s still soothing.
And I had a lot of fun photographing this meal too! The bright summery colors and hearty bounty were extremely photogenic.

And I thank Intensity Academy for their unique Chai Curry Chup! When I opened the bottle and sampled a taste it immediately reminded me of spice and salt covered fruit on a hot day. These kabobs were meant to be basted in the sweet and spicy sauce.

Chai Chup Chicken Kabobs and Garden Cilantro Rice

Ingredients

    For the Chicken and Fruit Kabobs

  • 1.25 lb chicken tenderloins
  • 1 mango, peeled, pitted and cubed
  • 1/2 large papaya, seeded, scooped and cubed
  • 1 whole pineapple, peeled, cored and cubed
  • 1/2 cup Chai Curry Chub, plus more for brushing
  • For the Garden Cilantro Rice

  • 1 Tb butter
  • 1 1/2 cups brown rice
  • 2 3/4 cup water
  • 1 tsp chicken bouillon
  • juice and zest of 1 lemon
  • 2 Tb Gourmet Garden cilantro paste
  • 1 tsp Gourmet Garden garlic paste
  • 1 Tb Gourmet Garden lightly dried cilantro

Instructions

  1. For the rice, melt the butter in a medium pot over medium heat. Stir in the brown rice, lemon juice, lemon zest, water and chicken bouillon. Bring to a simmer, cover and reduce heat to low. Simmer, covered for 30-35 minutes until liquid is absorbed. Remove from heat and let rest 5 minutes.
  2. Stir in the cilantro and garlic pastes. Garnish with light dried cilantro and lemon slices if desired.
  3. For the chicken, cut the tenderloins into 16 equal pieces. Place the chicken in a shallow dish and cover with 1/2 cup Chai Curry Chup.
  4. While the chicken is marinating, prepare the fruit, removing peels, seeds or cores as needed and cubing into bite sized pieces.
  5. Skewer the chicken and fruit on each of 8 skewers, alternating the chicken and fruit. Skewer the remaining fruit on each of 4 skewers.
  6. Prepare an indoor or outdoor grill with non stick spray. Grill over medium low to sear the chicken, then cover with foil to cook through, 10-15 minutes total. Use additional Chai Curry Chup to baste the chicken and fruit, rotating the skewers as needed to cook evenly.
  7. Keep covered until ready to serve.

Notes

Serve with Cilantro Rice. Makes 4 Servings, 2 chicken and fruit and 1 fruit skewer per person.
