Thai Grilled Chicken (Gai Yang ไก่ย่าง) 泰式烤雞



Remember the Thai Sweet Chili Sauce I made back in March? I used it for everything I could think of,but in Thailand, this sauce is supposed to be consumed with grilled chicken (Gai Yang ไก่ย่าง). 

They taste best together, the sweet and sourness in the sauce balance the spiciness and pungent taste of cilantro in the chicken, it is simply irresistible!

記得我早前做過的泰式甜辣醬嗎?我們家幾乎什麼可以沾醬的都用上它了,就除了它本來應該配上的泰式烤雞。在泰國,甜辣醬是必須和烤雞一起吃的二者不可缺一。吃烤雞沒甜辣醬?不行!甜辣醬不配烤雞?也不行!

甜辣醬咱們吃了不少,也該是時候做一次它的老搭檔--泰式烤雞啦!這可是我在泰國最喜歡的街邊小吃之一噢!

Ingredient:
1.5 lbs - 2 lbs of Chicken ( I used cornish hen)

Marinate:
1/2 cup of coriander stems or 1/3 cup of coriander roots 
5-6 cloves of garlic
1 tbsp of brown sugar or palm sugar
2 tsp of White pepper corn Or substitute with black pepper corn
1/4 tsp of salt
2-3 tbsp of fish sauce/ soy sauce


材料:
1.5 - 2磅的整雞 ( 我用了 cornish hen)
醃料:
1/2 cup 的芫荽(也叫香菜)根或芫荽杆儿
5-6 瓣的蒜瓣兒
1 tbsp 紅糖或椰糖
2 tsp 白胡椒粒 或 黑胡椒粒
1/4 tsp 鹽
2-3 tbsp 魚露 或 醬油



1. In a dried mortar and pestles pound white pepper corns into coarse powder, add the coriander roots/stems and garlic in batches and continue pounding until a smooth paste form.

2. Add sugar, salt and fish sauce into the paste and blend it well.

3. Spatchcocked the chicken and  rub the marinate all over the bird, place the chicken in a container with lid, place the container in refrigerator for at least 2 hours, leave it overnight if you have time.

4. Preheat oven to 370F (185 C), bake the chicken for 25-30 minutes, turn once in between. Use a brush to brush the sauce at the bottom of grilling pan over chicken. Turn oven to broil and broil for 8-10 minutes until the chicken is a little charred.

Serve with Thai Sweet Chili Sauce.

1. 在一個乾爽的石搗臼裡把胡椒粒搗成粗粒狀,分幾次把芫荽根和蒜瓣兒加入,不斷地搗成糊狀為止。

2. 加入鹽,糖和魚露/醬油,繼續搗勻。(也可以用攪拌機攪拌成糊狀,但是味道會稍微有點不一樣因為攪拌機需要加點水去攪拌,會把香料的味道沖淡,醃起來味道會差很多)。

3. 先把整雞處理一下,把雞的脊椎和頸項剪開取掉,然後把雞只反過來壓平,成蝴蝶狀。這樣處理烤的時間會比較短,也比較均勻, 烤出來的雞皮顏色更好看。

4. 把醃料均勻地抹在雞只內外,然後擺到一個有蓋的盒子/鍋子裡,擺到冰箱裡醃上至少兩個小時,過夜更好。

5. 把烤箱預熱至370F (185 C), 把雞入烤箱烤25-30分鐘,間中翻一次面。把流出來的汁液用刷子刷到雞皮上。之後把烤箱轉成broil繼續烤8-10分鐘至雞皮有點焦香即可。

吃的時候沾上泰式甜辣醬
