Wash produce before use
Pickle the radishes
- Cut the radishes in half, then cut the halves into thin half-moons.
In a small sauce pot, bring the coconut seasoning blend to a boil. Remove from the heat, add the radishes, and season with salt and pepper. Let stand, stirring occasionally, while you prepare the rest of the meal.
Marinate the chicken
- Pat the chicken dry with a paper towel; cut the chicken into 1-inch pieces. Season with salt and pepper.
In a large bowl, stir together the chicken and spicy khao soi paste. Let stand while you prepare the remaining ingredients.
Prep the remaining ingredients
- Trim the root ends from the scallions; cut the scallions into 1-inch lengths.
- Trim the ends from the mango; cut away the peel, then cut the flesh away from the pit. Cut the fruit into 1-inch chunks.
- Trim the root end from the romaine; coarsely chop the leaves.
Skewer and cook the chicken and scallions
Using 6  wooden skewers, thread the chicken and scallions onto the skewers, alternating the ingredients; reserve the marinade.
In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Working in batches if needed, add the chicken skewers and marinade and cook, turning occasionally, until lightly browned and cooked through, 6 to 8 minutes. Transfer to a plate. Add more oil between batches if needed. Season the skewers with salt and pepper. When the skewers are almost done, assemble the salad.
Make the mango-radish salad
Using a slotted spoon, remove the pickled radishes from the brine. In a large bowl, toss together the mango, romaine, radishes, and as much coconut seasoning blend from the pot as you like. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
Transfer the chicken skewers and mango-radish salad to individual plates and serve.
- Count the skewers.
