Skewered Chicken Thighs with Peanut Sauce

1/2 cup natural peanut butter, preferably chunky
1 tablespoon curry paste or curry powder or to taste
1/2 cup fresh or canned coconut milk
1 tablespoon nam pla or soy sauce
1 tablespoon lime juice
1 1/2 to 2 pounds boneless chicken thighs, cut into large chunks
chopped fresh cilantro leaves for garnish
lime wedges

Start charcoal or gas grill or heat broiler; fire should be moderately hot and rack should be at least 4 inches from heat. If using wood skewers, soak them in water. Put peanut butter in a small saucepan over medium heat; add curry paste or powder and enough coconut milk to achieve a creamy but quite thick consistency. Cook over low heat, whisking, until smooth; do not boil. Cool a bit, then stir in nam pla and lime juice. Marinate chicken in this mixture for 5 minutes to an hour. Skewer chicken chunks, then grill or broil slowly, until nicely browned and cooked through, 10 minutes or longer. Serve hot, garnished with cilantro and accompanied by lime. 4 servings.
