  • 1 Heat gas or charcoal grill. In 1-gallon resealable food-storage plastic bag, mix coconut milk and 1 tablespoon plus 2 teaspoons red curry paste until well blended. Reserve 1/4 cup mixture in separate container for brushing on chicken when grilling. Add chicken to bag; toss to coat. Refrigerate about 15 minutes.
  • 2 Meanwhile, in blender or food processor, place Mango Sauce ingredients. Cover; blend on high until smooth. Place in bowl until ready to serve. Place Thai Fresh Salsa ingredients in separate bowl.

  • 4 Cut chicken into thin strips. Fill tortillas with chicken, salsa, sauce and peanuts. Serve with lime wedges.
