2 boneless, skinless chicken thighs

2 stalks, minced lemongrass

3 cloves, minced garlic

3 tablespoons soy sauce

2 tablespoons honey

1 tablespoon sesame oil

1 tablespoon chili paste

1 tablespoon, grated ginger

2 tablespoons rice vinegar

2 tablespoons, chopped cilantro

2, chopped scallions

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon pepper


In a bowl, combine minced lemongrass, garlic, soy sauce, honey, sesame oil, chili paste, grated ginger, rice vinegar, chopped cilantro, chopped scallions, salt, and pepper. Mix well to create a flavorful marinade.

Place the chicken thighs in a resealable bag or shallow dish. Pour the prepared marinade over the chicken, ensuring it is fully coated. Marinate in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes, or ideally overnight for maximum flavor infusion.

Preheat the grill to medium-high heat. Remove the chicken from the marinade and grill for 6-7 minutes per side, or until the chicken is cooked through and has beautiful grill marks. Baste the chicken with the leftover marinade while grilling for extra flavor.

4. Rest and Serve

Remove the grilled chicken from the heat and let it rest for a few minutes. Slice the chicken and garnish with additional chopped cilantro and scallions. Serve the Spicy Lemongrass BBQ Chicken hot and enjoy!

6. Final tip

For an extra kick of heat, you can increase the amount of chili paste in the marinade. You can also serve the Spicy Lemongrass BBQ Chicken with a side of steamed jasmine rice and grilled vegetables for a complete meal.
