Make sure to pre-soak wooden skewers in water for at least 30 minutes.
Cut the chicken breasts into 1 1/2-inch chunks.
Thread a piece of chicken onto a soaked wooden skewer, then a lime leaf and another piece of chicken. Take another wooden skewer and repeat until you have used up all of the chicken. Place the skewers in a large shallow bowl and set aside.
Place the chopped ginger and garlic, coconut oil, lime zest and juice, curry powder, chili powder, paprika and the cilantro leaves in a food processor. Blend until smooth.
Pour the curry sauce over the prepared chicken skewers, coating the meat. Cover and set in the refrigerator to marinate for 2 - 4 hours.
Light the outdoor grill or place a grill pan over medium-high heat. Place the skewers directly on the heat or in the grill pan and cook for 4 minutes on each side, until the chicken is cooked through.
Serve with lime wedges and Garlic and Mango Madras Relish.
