  Chicken 1⁄2 Kilogram
  Milk 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs) (Plain)
  Garlic 4
  Coriander seeds 1 1⁄2 Tablespoon (Cilantro Seeds)
  Ginger 1 Tablespoon
  Yellow curry powder 2 Tablespoon
  Turmeric 1 Tablespoon
  Chicken stock powder 1 Tablespoon (1 Cube)
  Oyster sauce 2 Tablespoon
  Sesame oil 2 Tablespoon
  Thai seasoning sauce 2 Tablespoon
  Salt 1⁄2 Teaspoon

Cut up you chicken into thin slices roughly about 1 x 2 inches

Next using a pestle and mortar (trad) or blender crush the coriander seeds to powder then add Garlic and Ginger and grind to a textured paste (not purée)

In a large bowl mix everything (except barbecue sticks) together thoroughly and leave to marinade for 3 hours or more.

Once the chicken has had time to soak up all those lovely flavours, feed them on to the Bamboo barbecue sticks so the meat is about 4-5 inches long and flat, (not chunky) this is so the chicken will cook quickly and remain tender and moist

Chuck them onto a mature barbecue, (not too hot) turning regularly and coating them with coconut milk as you turn, when done, remove and surprise your friends, you can have yours as you're cooking, afterwards the kids (and adult males) can play sword fights with the sticks
