Kai Yang (Grilled Chicken)

  • Recipe Submitted by on

Category: Poultry

 Ingredients List

  • 1 Whole chicken (2.5 - 3 lbs)
  • 1 tb Fresh chopped ginger
  • 1 tb Chopped fresh garlic
  • 1 ts Ground turmeric
  • 1 tb Light brown sugar
  • 2 tb Oil
  • 2 Stalks fresh lemon grass
  • -(bottom 6" only, chopped)
  • 2 tb Chopped fresh coriander root
  • 2 tb Fish sauce (nam pla)


Rinse the chicken and pat dry. Split the chicken in half down the breast
or cut into serving sized pieces.

Pound or process the lemon grass, ginger, garlic, and coriander root in a
mortar, blender, or processor until a smooth paste is formed, adding a
little of the oil if necessary. Add turmeric, brown sugar, fish sauce, and
(remaining) oil. Blend until smooth. Pour mixture over the chicken,
cover, and marinate in the refrigerator for 2 hours or (up to) overnight.
Turn the pieces periodically to allow them to marinate evenly.

Prepare hot coals for barbecuing, or preheat the broiler. Grill the
chicken until the juices from the thickest part run clear, about 20-30

##Note: this recipe works well for grilled Thai Chicken Wings, too!
