  • 4 chicken breasts cut into chunks, washed and dried
  • ½ a cup of almond butter
  • 2 tbsp. fresh lime juice
  • 1 tbsp. coconut palm sugar
  • 1 tsp. ground ginger
  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 2 garlic cloves chopped
  • ½ tsp. of red pepper flakes
  • 2 tbsp. of coconut aminos
  • 1 ½ tsp. of himalayan pink salt
  • 5 large wooden skewers presoaked


  • Add the chicken to a medium sized bowl then proceed to sprinkle in the pink salt and coat the chicken with it.
  • Add all of the ingredients to a blender and blend into a smooth consistency. The mixture should be a smooth (not runny paste) this will thicken with time.
  • Divide the marinade evenly, pouring one half of the almond mixture over the chicken to act as a marinade. refrigerate the remainder and reserve for the sauce.
  • Feed the chunks onto each skewer leaving a few centimetres at the bottom of each skewer free to hold and set aside.
  • Allow the meat to infuse and marinate for up to 2 hours or overnight (if you prefer)
  • Crack up the broiler/grill on high heat and grill the meat thoroughly on each side until both sides are golden brown.
  • Serve accordingly


  • Make sure you are using skinless boneless chicken.
  • You can use a broiler or and open flame grill to cook the chicken just make sure the internal temperate is 165F (75F) that's when it is cooked.
  • Feel free to use crunchy almond butter instead of smooth.
  • You can use wooden or metal skewers, if using wooden just be sure to soak them in advance.
  • Cut the chicken in small pieces around 2 inches or a little under is fine.
  • Use light coconut milk if you want to keep the fat content lower
