Thai BBQ Chicken
A delicious exotic grilled chicken, with ginger, garlic, coconut and just a hint of heat. Reminiscent of Thai street food! As an alternate try it with chicken wings!
1 whole chicken cut up into pieces or my preference eight chicken thighs
2 lemongrass stalks trimmed chopped
2 inches of fresh ginger chopped
4 shallots or ½ a small red onion chopped
6 garlic cloves smashed and chopped
½ bunch of cilantro chopped
1 tablespoon brown sugar
½ cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons fish sauce
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 fresh Thai green chile (prefered) or a serrano chile seeded and white pith removed.
Prep chicken. Combine all other ingredients in a food processor or blender until well combined.
Marinate chicken for a minimum of 4 hours or overnight. Reserve marinade to baste the chicken during cooking.
Grill chicken using indirect heat until 165 degrees. Serve with kime wedges and Thai chiles for the brave.
