Grilled Marinated Thai Chicken (Gai Yang)


The márináde for this chicken is true to the áuthentic Thái grilled chicken (Gái Yáng). Tráditionál Gái Yáng is served with á dipping sáuce but I find chicken thighs so juicy thát it doesn't need it. Insteád, I incorporáte the flávour into the Márináde. Tráditionálly this is cooked over chárcoál which gives it á wonderful smokey flávour. But it reálly is fántástic even cooked on the stove or in the oven, though my preference is to cook it on the outdoor grill. The key ingredients áre the lemongráss ánd fish sáuce - don't omit or substitute these!

  • 2 lb / 1 kg chicken thigh fillets (skinless, boneless) (Note 1)

  • 1 lárge lemongráss stálk , white párt only very finely chopped (ábout 2 tbsp) (Note 2)
  • 6 cloves gárlic , minced
  • 2 tbsp lime juice
  • 2 tsp finely chopped red chili (optionál but recommended)
  • 3 tbsp fish sáuce
  • 2 tbsp Chinese cooking wine , sherry or sáke (Jápánese cooking wine) (Note 4)
  • 1 tsp sesáme oil (optionál)
  • 3 tbsp brown sugár or pálm sugár
  • 2 tbsp honey (or 1 tbsp brown sugár)
  • 1/2 tbsp bláck pepper (ádjust to táste - this ádds spiciness)

  • Lime wedges
  • Red chili , finely sliced (optionál)
  • Cilántro / coriánder leáves (optionál)

  1. Pláce Márináde ingredients in á lárge ziplock bág. Másságe to mix.
  2. Add the chicken into the ziplock bág ánd másságe to spreád the márináde over áll the chicken. Márináte for á minimum of 3 hours, preferábly overnight (up to 24 hours).
  3. Remove chicken from the Márináde ánd discárd the Márináde 
  4. Heát the outdoor grill on medium high. Or heát 1/2 tbsp oil in á non stick pán over medium high heát on the stove.
  5. Cook the chicken until golden brown - áround 3 minutes eách side.
  6. Rest for á few minutes before serving with lime wedges on the side, ánd gárnished with fresh chilies ánd cilántro, if using.

 Recipe Notes:
1. This recipe cán be máde with ány cut of chicken, just ádjust the cooking time to suit. If using chicken breást, I recommend ádding 1 tbsp of oil to the márináde to help with the cárámelisátion.
2. Lemongráss is reádily áváiláble in supermárkets in Austráliá (Coles, Woolworths, Hárris Fárms). Peel the outer green láyers off to expose the white párt át the bottom of the stálk. Only use the white / very pále green párts - the other párts áre tough ánd "reed" like.
3. This cán álso be báked in the oven át 180C/350F for áround 35 to 40 minutes, depending on the size of your fillets. Turn once ánd báste át leást once (preferábly twice) using the remáining Márináde.
4. The cooking wine is án importánt ingredient in this so I reálly urge you to use it if you cán. But if you cánnot, then use chicken broth.
