 You can use any part of the chicken you like for this recipe but I prefer the thighs. Traditional Gai Yang is served with a dipping sauce but if you use chicken thighs, it's so juicy that it doesn't need it. 

Ingredients

For the marinade:

  • 1 whole chicken, cut into 8 pieces OR 8 chicken thighs
  • 1 can coconut milk
  • 1/4 Cup thai yellow curry paste
  • zest of 2 limes
  • 1/2 Cup brown sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon chili paste
  • 1 large lemongrass stalk, white part only, finely chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 Tablespoons fish sauce

Directions

For the marinade:

Combine all ingredients and marinate for up to 24 hours.

Heat the grill to medium or heat a nonstick pan over medium high heat on the stove.

Cook the chicken until golden brown, around 4 minutes each side.

Rest for a few minutes.

Serve with lime wedges, garnish with fresh chillies and cilantro.
