  • 1 First, you need to prepare the achuete oil by extracting the color of atsuete. Begin by combining 2 tablespoons of oil with 1 tablespoon of atsuete in a sauté pan. Turn the heat to medium and leave the seeds to cook. Discard the seeds once it turns dark in color. In a heavy duty food-grade plastic bag, place the chicken pieces together with the mashed Knorr Chicken Cubes, achuete oil, garlic and pepper. Massage the chicken in the plastic and seal it well, making sure that no air bubbles go inside.
  • 2 The next step is to prepare the peanut dip. Get a saucepan and pour the Knorr Complete Recipe Mix Kare-Kare and water. Stir using a whisk or fork to make sure it’s free of lumps. When fully dissolved, cook this on high heat until the liquid begins to boil. Turn the heat to low and continue to cook until the mixture is very thick. Transfer and pour the sauce into a condiment bowl and garnish with chopped peanuts on top.
  • 3 After a few more steps, this dish is complete. Skew the chicken pieces into the lemongrass stalks by piercing a hole through the meat with the use of the knife’s tip. Place on top of a grill and cook until done.
  • 4 Going the extra mile for your family will bring you more happy memories around the table. Chicken in Lemongrass Skewers is definitely best served with peanut sauce on the side.
