Andreas Trauttmansdorff


  • 16 to 20 small wooden skewers
  • 1/3 cup barbecue sauce
  • 2 tbsp Indian curry paste
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 4 skinless, boneless chicken breast
  • 1/3 cup chopped fresh coriander , optional


  • Preheat oven to 500F (250C). Soak skewers in water. Line 1 or 2 rimmed baking sheets with foil and brush with vegetable oil or coat with cooking spray. In a large bowl, stir barbecue sauce with curry paste and salt. Cut chicken lengthwise into 1/2-inch- (1-cm-) thick strips. Toss with sauce to coat. Thread 1 strip of chicken onto each skewer. Spread out on baking sheets. If using one sheet, bake in centre of oven. If using two sheets, bake in top and bottom thirds of oven until chicken is firm to the touch, 8 to 10 minutes. Sprinkle with coriander. Good with mango salad.
