    We really enjoyed this. I was a bit worried that my substitution of Chinese oyster sauce for the Thai might have affected the recipe. The marinade was quite thick, like a BBQ sauce. However, I googled the Thai sauce and it seems to be the same consistency, at least. I had to cook this in the oven, so I just cooked it in the marinade and it worked out fine (cooked it for 1 hr.). When I do cook it on the grill, I think I will marinate in a bag so I can "squish" it often and get the flavor distributed. Also, I will use the Thai oyster sauce, if I can get it, for an even better flavor (we already loved it!). I also used the optional lemon grass - my first experience. I liked the delicate tang that it added. It seemed to balance the sauce wonderfully, and I recommend it. Thank you for posting this recipe, RitaL!

    Good chicken with a slight asian flavor! Although I cooked the chicken in the oven I will be making this a lot this summer on the grill. Thanks for sharing!
