This Paleo Indian Chicken Kebab recipe is served with coconut cashew cream for an easy, healthy, Summer meal that will take you to the Middle East!
If you tried the coconut curry with sweet potato noodles from a few weeks ago, then you are going to L-O-V-E this.
SRSLY. Similar spicy-sweet Indian flavors, lots of creamy goodness and SUPER EASY TO MAKE YO. It’s kind of like Indian Spiced Chicken just without the cashew cilantro pesto (although that would be a GOOD DIP!)
Basically, it’s the dinner that has, like, ALL the components, but it’s in your-face-in-30-mins-weeknight-friendly food.
Um what else do you need to know? NOTHING.
Okay. I lied. What else do you need to know besides the fact that there’s creamy saucy goodness in the form of the spectacularly nutty coconut cashew cream. Which is really just 2 ingredients (coconut milk and cashews) which you put into a food processor and press that magical button that is the biggest time save of ALL the evers.
Let’s be reals. If I had to pick a kitchen gadget to marry, it would be the food processor. So much <3. And coming from a girl who owns ALL the gizmos (yes, even the most useless purchase ever: an avocado slicer. USE A KNIFE FRIENDS.) that is some major favoritism.
But, as much as I would love to write a whole post dedicated to my favoritset of all the favorites of the kitchen gadget world, that would send you to the land of snoresville in about negative eleventy billion seconds.
So let’s talk about chicken on a stick. Because eating chicken off sticks is about the greatest fun that you can have at dinner EVER.
But maybe I just need to get out more? Don’t answer this.
Besides being fun and general good times for your mouth, these kebabs are a little bit smokey, alittle bit spicy and a whole lot of family-loves-it yum at the dinner table.
Especially when the grilly Paleo kebabs meet the cashew cream and cauliflower rice.
Except this aint yo’ Momma’s Cauliflower rice… mostly because she probably didn’t make it, due to it just being all trendy and PIN ALL THE CAULIFLOWER as of late. BUT ALSO because it’s sautéed in good fo’ yo’ body coconut oil until it’s perfectly golden-brown and lightly crispy. Then it gets a little cozy with cilantro and mint. <— Uhmm, HELLO, fresh herby goodness.
I mean. If you are REALLY against cauliflower rice, this chicken would be SUPER yummy with some Thai Mango Avocado Salad with Grilled Sweet Potatoes!
Our little poultry friend? It’s hittin’ your taste buds with a POW of cayenne, but then bringing it all back with the cooling mint and creamy dip. It’s prettttty much all here guys.
And your fun-food-kebab loving face could be eating it. Like 2 NIGHT.
Why are you even still here?
But, since you are, I have some parting warnings: Soak your skewers friends. Unless you want your super fun meal to end in not-super fun times at the ER and possible singed-off eyebrows.
Which I am sort of guessing might kind-of-totally ruin your night. And week. And maybe WHOLE LIFE.
Not that I’m dramatic.
Or speak from experience.
