Ingredients
  • 1/4 cup fish sauce
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon ginger, minced
  • 1 teaspoon organic red pepper flakes
  • 1 teaspoon organic coconut sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cracked black pepper
  • 6-8 pieces organic, pastured chicken, bone-in, skin-on (can use breast, thigh, legs, wings)
Instructions
  1. In a small glass bowl, combine the first 7 ingredients (fish sauce through black pepper) and stir to combine.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Serve and enjoy!
Recipe Notes

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.
