Serves: 4 - 6
Prep time: 10 minutes
Direct Heat: 600F
Note: marinate 4 hours up to overnight
Peel the onion and cut into large 1" chunks, cover and set aside.
Place the chicken in a resealable plastic bag and pour in the rub ingredients.
Squish the bag around really well so all the surfaces are completely coated with the rub recipe.
Place the bag in the refrigerator while you make the mango curry marinade/dipping sauce.
Add the coconut milk and blend well with the mango and lime.
Add the curry powder and blend well with the coconut, mango lime mixture.
Thread a piece of onion on one of the kabobs skewers, then a couple pieces of chicken.
Alternate chicken and onion finishing with onion (helps keep the meat on while cooking).
Place the chicken kabobs recipe in a shallow dish and pour 1/2 of the mango curry marinade/dipping sauce over the kabobs.
Rotate the kabobs in the dish so every surface is covered with sauce.
Cover and refrigerate at least 4 hours or up to overnight.
When the grill reaches temperature place the chicken kabobs recipe on the grates and close the cover.
After several minutes check on the chicken and wiggle each skewer slightly with your BBQ tongs to loosen from the grates.
Rotate a 1/4 turn to keep each side browning evenly.
After 10-12 minutes and after rotating the skewers around the grill the chicken should be cooked.
Look for an internal temperature of about 165F.
Remove the chicken kabobs from the grill and place them on a serving platter.
Drizzle the reserved Mango Curry sauce over the skewers or serve on the side as a dipping sauce.
And don't forget, these little rascals are great wrapped in a nice fresh, fluffy crepe.
