    Comedie's Note:

    Originally from the Lemon Grass Restaurant's cookbook "The Best of Vietnamese & Thai Cooking". Have made a few changes. Use as a chicken marinade for the grill, or for oven roasted chicken and Cornish game hens.

    • to make marinade spicier add thai bird chile (or more)


    1. 1
      Mince marinade ingredients by hand or process in food processor.
    2. 2
      Marinate chicken at least 2 hours, or overnight in the refrigerator.
    3. 3
      If roasting entire chicken, can put an onion and a lemon inside chicken. Roast at 350 approximately 1 hour with occasional basting.
    4. 4
      If barbecuing pieces, baste with marinade and cook until it is as you like. I tend to cook long over medium-low coals with mesquite chips.

      Oh wow, this is seriously great! Anyone who likes Vietnamese HAS to try this! So easy too; I used 2 skinless breasts for the two of us, each cut into 4 strips lengthways, stabbed with a knife a few times, and marinated overnight. I cooked this on my health grill and basted frequently, served with rice and greens; taste was truly amazing and full, thanks for a recipe I can't wait to make again!
