Marinated, double basted, and triple grilled: that is the secret to the unbelievable yumminess of this chicken. I grew up on this style of BBQ chicken because it’s a specialty of Southern Thailand, and while I always thought it was an incredible flavour, I never knew how the chicken gets its iconic salty-sweet, rich, sticky red glaze on them! It’s a brilliant technique that’s unlike anything I’ve ever seen anywhere else.
To make sure the chicken doesn’t become overcooked from the multiple grilling, make sure you cut big pieces of chicken, and let the chicken cool before you grill them again. No sauce, no nothing needed. The chicken is perfectly delicious on its own, but it’s pretty great with some jasmine rice should you want to turn it into a meal!
