Thai Barbecue Chicken W/ Spicy Dipping Sauce

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by velorutionista

A simple tasty way to grill chicken (or pork loin!). This comes from the Hot Sour Salty Sweet cookbook. I usually serve it with sticky rice and stir fried veggies, but it's very versatile! Use less or more crushed red pepper flakes according to your taste--this can get quite fiery!

Wow! This is delicious. We loved the dipping sauce. The chicken came out nice and moist. I cut the recipe down to serve two. So I just used my mortar and pestle to mash everything up. Served it with recipe #238240 and recipe #28243. Thanks for posting. :)
