Sometimes the appetizers at a party can be a pitfall. Though small in size, the wedges of cheese, bowls of nuts and cream-cheese-laced bites of food can be high in calories. And you keep nibbling, because small bites are so easy.
These chicken skewers pack a lot of flavor, so you only need one. Marinated in light coconut milk and herbs, they’re then grilled and served with a sauce that uses a small amount of light coconut milk (found in the Asian aisle of well-stocked supermarkets.)
For something different, thread the chicken tenders on lemon grass sticks for grilling. Offer them alongside fresh vegetable sticks such as jicama, or a colorful array of pepper strips.
