Thai Barbecue Chicken

Thai Barbecue Chicken has a delicious thai marinade and is perfect served with some grilled veggies!  The entire family will love this recipe! 


We spend a lot of time outside during the summer and grilling in my jam.  I love to grill in the summer and I especially love when the recipe turns out as delicious as this one!   You guys know me and my love for asian flavors and food.  It is my favorite.

This marinade was simple but full of such amazing flavor.  I marinaded the chicken overnight which really helped to infuse all of the yummy flavors into the chicken.


The great thing about this meal is that my entire family loved it!  Including the picky eater.  He said it was one of the best grilling recipes that we have had.  I grilled up some fresh veggies with the chicken.  I just love the char that the chicken and veggies both get on the grill.

This meal is a light and delicious summer meal that is going to wow your tastebuds!

  1. This looks really delicious! I may make it tonight! Is there a sauce I can sub for the fish sauce-or maybe just increase the soy sauce? I’m just not big on fish sauce.

    • I am not a big fan of fish sauce either but it turned out great!! You can definitely add a bit more soy sauce or even leave the fish sauce out. 🙂

  2. This looks so delicious. A perfect summer meal, I might make it tonight!

    Hey girl this looks amazing! Yummy!

  4. Haven’t made this yet but will! I’d be afraid aid that overnight marinating would make the consistency mushy. Like it does with fish that’s marinated too long. Also wish everyone wouldn’t say the food was “yummmmmy”. So tired of that phrase. Ha!

  5. Solid recipe! Hubby and I made this and the Grilled Honey Lime Cilantro Chicken:

    We used bone-in, skin on thighs and they turned out well, although not as pretty as yours.

    I wish I marinated longer than 3 hours, the flavour could be stronger. Next time we’ll marinate them overnight and add a few red pepper flakes to it.

    A keeper!
