  • In a small glass bowl, combine the first 7 ingredients (fish sauce through black pepper) and stir to combine.
  • Place chicken in a ziplock bag and pour marinade over top, reserving 1/4 cup. Toss the chicken in the bag to coat and allow to marinate in the fridge for 30 minutes up to overnight.
  • Preheat gas grill to medium-high. Once hot, add the chicken pieces, skin side down. Cook for 5 minutes over direct heat. Then flip the chicken and move to indirect heat. Take the reserved marinade and brush over top of the chicken skin with a pastry brush. Cook for 7 minutes, or until an internal thermometer reads 160F.
  • Serve and enjoy!


If you don't have a gas grill, follow the instructions for grilling chicken on your charcoal grill. Or you can use a cast-iron skillet.
