READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by KitchenManiac

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

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

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.
