1 Immerse 8-10 large bamboo skewers in water to soak.
2 Mix together yoghurt, curry powder and garlic, then spread over chicken strips and sliced vegetables in a large shallow dish. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours.
3 While chicken and vegetables are marinating, mix peanut butter, lime juice, soy sauce and brown sugar together in a small pot over a low heat. Add a little hot water at a time to thin the sauce to the desired consistency.
4 After 2 hours, turn the grill setting on your oven to high. Now thread the chicken pieces and vegetables onto the skewers and place on a large baking tray lined with baking paper.
5 Grill for 5 minutes, then turn skewers over. Grill for another 5 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink on the inside.
6 While the skewers are cooking, bring a large pot of water to the boil. Place bok choy in boiling water and cook for 2 minutes. Remove from water and drain.
7 Place skewers on serving plate and scatter over coriander leaves. Serve with peanut dipping sauce, bok choy, hot rice and lime wedges.
