Thai Grilled Chicken (Gai Yahng)
195 mins (prep 150, cooking 45)
11 ingredients
4-6 servings
Another recipe from Nancie McDermott's 'Real Thai'. This is my absolute favorite Thai recipe (the cookbook's spine is broken so that it always falls open to this recipe, that's how much I use it)! It's so amazingly good, yet really fairly simple. Apparently in northeastern Thailand, this is street food, halves of small grilled chicken sold by vendors as the delicious aroma fills the air. For a real treat, have your butcher halve Cornish game hens and grill those rather than chicken pieces or quarters. Prep time includes marinating time.
