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!
Thai Barbecue Chicken
- 2 pounds boneless chicken thighs

- 1 1 ⁄2 tablespoons fish sauce

- In a small bowl combine cilantro ginger, garlic, soy sauce, fish sauce, olive oil and brown sugar. Add the chicken to a ziplock bag and marinate for 3 hours or overnight.

Great recipe. Made in skillet on stovetop instead of grilling and added to pad Thai. Everyone loved it!
My favorite recipe
did the recipe as is, minus cilantro, because i didn’t have any..
fish sauce was not at all too strong, and gives that perfect flavour!
marinated overnight (probably around 12 hours, tbh) and was super tender, and flavourful
will be adding this one to the ‘rotation’ 😉
This is one of my go-tos, I make it every other week. It’s fantastic on mushrooms, too. Thanks so much for sharing it!
Tried this recipe today to accompany my salads for lunch this week. Tastes amazing- adding this to my recipe book now!
this is a lovely recipe! I added some chopped scallions and chopped lemongrass and it really intensified the flavor!
Sounds great!! Thanks for sharing and following along with me! XOXO
Solid recipe! Hubby and I made this and the Grilled Honey Lime Cilantro Chicken: https://therecipecritic.com/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.
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!
Hey girl this looks amazing! Yummy!
This looks so delicious. A perfect summer meal, I might make it tonight!
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. 🙂
Add some lemon juice to the soy sauce to give it some of the sour found in the fish sauce.
