A few weeks ago the boys and I met up with my husband for lunch. We had been wanting to try out a taco food truck that makes everything totally gluten-free. The tacos were delicious and it was great to eat out and not worry about cross-contamination! For dessert, the food truck had the most amazing fruit cups. They used all kinds of berries, grapes and bananas covered in sweet vanilla whipped cream. My 14-month-old, Graham, is already a berry-obsessed baby – but with the addition of whipped cream he went a little crazy begging for every last bite! I knew I wanted to recreate it to make for parties and BBQs this summer.
Of all my favorite foods to eat out, Thai food is definitely my favorite! I love the bold flavors, creamy curries, and fresh garnishes. Sometimes making Thai food at home doesn’t compare to what you get in a good restaurant. I think it’s because ingredients like fresh kaffir lime leaves and Thai basil aren’t things I usually (ever) have sitting around my kitchen. However, these Thai peanut chicken skewers will rival the flavors of any restaurant dish and are made with easy-to-find ingredients.
The chicken is marinated in a flavorful coconut milk mixture. It’s then grilled and topped with the most delicious peanut sauce. Thai peanut sauce has my heart forever. I like serving this with extra sauce, white rice, crushed peanuts, and a quick pickled cucumber salad.
