Red Curry Chicken Skewers

Get ahead by cutting the boneless, skinless chicken breasts and trimming the snap peas in the morning. When you’re home for the evening, marinate the chicken in the fridge for an hour or so, soak the skewers in water, and you’re ready to whip up this wholesome, filling meal. Adventurous younger eaters might delight over the curry-flavored chicken bites, but we kept the spice to a minimum to not overwhelm kids at the table. Put a bottle of hot sauce on the table (or add some kick to half of the skewers before grilling), if you’re after a little more heat.
