Thai Chicken Marinade

  • 1/4 cup fish sauce
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 3 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 3 tbsp brown sugar
  • 3 tbsp lime juice
  • 3-4 cloves garlic
  • 1 inch ginger root peeled
  • 1/2 shallots
  • 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes optional


  • Blend the marinade ingredients in blender or food processor.
  • Marinade chicken thighs in marinade for at least 4 hours or up to 24 hours.
  • Heat up grill or skillet. Once heated, cook chicken on one side and then flip to cook the other side until internal temperature reaches 165ºF. (See Note 1)
  • Remove from heat and garnish with chopped cilantro.

Note 1: If the outside of the chicken burns before the insides are cook, try covering or lowering heat (if using skillet), moving chicken so that it is not directly on the fire (if using charcoal grill).
