Disney Cookabout Recipe Chicken Skewers

Hi everyone,

I hope you all are safe at home and about to log off and start the long weekend with the family.

Todays Foodie Friday  recipe is for Chicken Skewers in a Spicy Peanut Sauce. This recipe was inspired by a visit to the Shangana Cultural Village in Hazyview, Mpumalanga. 

Inspired by Disney’s locally produced live action show Disney’s Cookabout. I will be sharing with you some of their healthy and oh-so delicious recipes that were featured on the recent season of the show so stay tuned to my blog.

The cooking show sees kids learn where our food comes from, visiting farms around the country before heading back to the kitchen to learn to cook with the ingredients.

Thank you Disney Channel© for this yummy recipe.

Chicken Skewers in a Spicy Peanut Sauce and Pickled Cucumber



80 g organic peanut butter
90 ml coconut milk
15 ml lime juice
5 ml freshly grated ginger
1 garlic clove, crushed
2,5 ml ground cumin
2,5 ml curry powder
2,5 ml paprika
Pinch of chili flakes
1 ml salt
Black pepper
300 g chicken tenderloins or chicken fillet
4 bamboo skewers, soaked in water
Toasted peanuts for garnishing


50 ml white vinegar (use apple cider vinegar preferably)
30 ml lemon juice
30 ml honey
2,5 ml salt
5 ml chopped dill
150 g sliced baby cucumbers
30 ml spring onions, thinly sliced



Mix together the peanut butter, coconut milk, lime juice, ginger, garlic and the spices.
Mix well and reserve half of the marinade for dipping.
Marinate the chicken in the other half of the sauce.

Place in a Ziploc bag and toss well to coat the chicken – leave it in the fridge for at least 15 minutes.
Thread the chicken onto the soaked skewers.

Heat a griddle pan on medium heat and cook the skewers on both sides until cooked and golden brown.
Serve with the reserved marinade and the pickled cucumbers. Garnish with the toasted peanuts

Bon Appétit

Have a wonderful long weekend.
