Indian-Spiced Chicken Sticks

Sometimes a little spice is nice. In this case, it’s bold-but-not-too-hot chili powder and garam masala rubbed on juicy chicken thighs. We like to take it for a dip in creamy yogurt. Get the recipe: Indian-Spiced Chicken Sticks

Beef Satay with Thai Dipping Sauce

We absolutely love this kebab and sauce combo. The delicious dip is made with nut butter, coconut milk and a bit of red curry. It’s so good you’ll want to use it for more than just skewers (think tortilla chips, veggies, etc). Get the recipe: Beef Satay with Thai Dipping Sauce
