  • In a bowl, stir together the turmeric, coriander, garlic, fish sauce, erythritol, lime juice, olive oil, salt, and pepper.
  • Place the marinade and chicken in a ziplock plastic bag and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes and up to 4 hours to let the flavors combine. Meanwhile, soak 4 (6 to 8-inch) wooden skewers in water.
  • Preheat the broiler. Line a rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil.
  • Thread the marinated chicken and vegetables onto the soaked skewers, dividing everything evenly among them and packing all items tightly. Alternate between chicken and vegetables on each skewer.
  • Place the kebabs on the prepared baking sheet in one layer. Broil the kebabs about 6 inches from the heat, turning occasionally to caramelize all sides, until the chicken is cooked through, 15 to 20 minutes, depending on heat and size of the chicken pieces. Plate 2 kebabs each on 2 dinner plates. Season to taste with salt. Drizzle each with half of the melted butter, and serve.
