Form the chicken skewers: in a medium bowl, combine the onion mixture, ground chicken, panko, 1 tablespoon sriracha, and a large pinch of salt and pepper. Form the chicken mixture into large meatballs, then shape each meatball around the lemongrass stalks to form kebabs. Place on a lightly oiled baking sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes, until cooked through.

Serve chicken skewers on a bed of coconut rice, with the cucumber-carrot slaw to the side. Finish with the remaining cilantro and sriracha, if desired!
