1teaspoon Sriracha sauce, or to tasteor your favorite hot sauce
¼cupcrunchy peanut butterroasted
Combine lemongrass and garlic in a food processor; mince. Add shallots, cilantro stems, and ginger. Grind well. (This also can be done with a mortar and pestle.) Remove half the mixture, place in a bowl, and stir in oil. Add chicken tenders, mixing to coat well. Cover and set aside to marinate.
To remaining lemongrass mixture, add coconut milk, lime juice and zest, red curry paste, and 1 teaspoon Sriracha sauce; combine well. Add peanut butter and work into a smooth sauce. If sauce is too thick, add a little coconut milk or water to achieve a good dipping consistency. Taste and add more Sriracha sauce, if desired. (Makes 1 cup.)
Heat a grill until very hot. Thread marinated chicken tenders on bamboo skewers, keeping as much of the marinade on them as possible. Grill about 2 minutes per side, or until just done. Serve at once, with sauce for dipping.
