A simple but delish Thai grilled chicken. Cook time excludes marinate time.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix the marinade ingredients together, pour over chicken and leave it in the fridge to marinate for at least 30 minutes.
  2. While chicken is in the fridge, prepare the sauce.
  3. Heat vinegar, sugar in a saucepan over low heat, and stir until dissolved.
  4. Bring to boil and simmer until the sauce thickens, and a syrup forms.
  5. (this will only take a minute or two) Pour into a bowl.
  6. Preheat grill.
  7. Place chicken about 20cm/8 inches from the heat, and cook both sides until coloured.
  8. (about 6 minutes on the first side, 4 minutes on the second) Serve with Coriander/Cilantro Sauce and Fragrant Rice.

I was about to post this same recipe I got from a cooking class I took. I make it all the time, and it is wonderful! I use the coriander root ( cilantro stem ) in the marinade and the cilantro leaf and stalk for the sauce. I also make extra sauce and put in thinly sliced cucumbers to serve along with the chicken and steamed sticky rice

This was so simple, but definately not lacking in the flavor department. The chili's in the marinade really let it stand apart the crowd. I left the sugar out of the marinade also (dh doesn't like sweet foods). I got tons of rave reviews on this one. Thanks KitchenMajic! My husband is already asking me to make again tomorrow for some more friends ;))

Wonderfully easy, this is a great, weekend grill dish. I made as is and added the salt, garlic, chilies and cilantro to the sauce after it thickened. Terrific recipe KitchenManiac, it's added to our list of regulars, thanks for sharing!
