    Chrissyo's Note:

    This is my variation on a Thai dish call Gai Yang. It is a versatile dish which can be eaten cold at a picnic. It is a crowd pleaser.

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Cut the chicken in half lengthways, and if you like, remove the bones with a small pointed knife, leaving only the wing bones.
    2. 2
      If using chicken pieces, proceed directly to step 2.
    3. 3
      Crush the garlic with the salt to a smooth paste.
    4. 4
      Coarsely crush the peppercorns in a motar and pestle or a blender.
    5. 5
      Combine in a flat dish with the coriander, and the lime juice.
    6. 6
      Rub the mixture into the cicken on all sides, cover and refrigerate overnight, or at least an hour.
    7. 7
      However, this recipe tastes better if refrigerated over night.
    8. 8
      Barbecue the chicken halves or chicken pieces, turning the chicken every 5 minutes or so, until the chicken is no longer pink and the skin is crisp.
    9. 9
      If the weather does not permit, you can cook under a grill, (broiler) or in the oven.
    10. 10
      To serve the boned chicken, diagonally slice the chicken skin side up and place on a serving platter.
    11. 11
      If using chicken pieces arrange the pieces on a serving platter.
    12. 12
      Garnish with halved cherry tomatoes and curls of spring (green) onions.
    13. 13
      Serve with a salad of sliced tomatoes, sliced cucumber and spring (green) onions which have been seasoned with lime juice and salt only.
    14. 14
      A side dish of steamed rice goes well with this dish.

      We just started the South Beach Diet and this dish fit perfectly into our plan. I used boneless skinless chicken breasts and marinated for 2 hours. It was tasty and moist. A great find!

      Beautiful! I used two skinless breast fillets for the two of us, and cooked them in the pan so they got that nice charred effect. Such a quick and easy dinner, thanks for posting!
