What’s In Bacon Sriracha Chicken Skewers and Coconut Rice:

The ingredients that make this the perfect summer/fall comfort meal are savory ground chicken, thick cut bacon, spicy sriracha sauce (the hipsters hot sauce) and various fresh herbs and dried spices. To hold these skewers together I use panko bread crumbs (available gluten free here) BUT if you live grain free, almond flour works great too!

The Creamy Coconut Rice:

Trust me on this, if you haven’t tried coconut rice, you must. It’s incredibly simple: just cook the rice in water and  coconut milk  for a rich creamy rice that make the perfect accompaniment to this flavorful meal!

Bake or Grill!

I am very into platter meals these days. I love the idea that everyone gathers around the table and pulls from one large platter. A very communal meal indeed. And it can be made in the oven or on the grill, making it a terrific year round meal!

Tips and what you will need: To make the most of your time, start the rice a few minutes before placing skewers in oven. You will need sriracha sauce, coconut milk, parchment paper, a rimmed cookie sheet,  6″ wooden skewers, a steaming pot, and a skillet. I  use panko bread crumbs (available gluten free here).
