  • 3 pounds boneless, skinless chicken thighs
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1 thumb-size ginger peeled and coarsely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic peeled
  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 2 tablespoons fish sauce
  • juice of 1 lime


  • Rinse chicken well and pat dry. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • In a food processor, or with a mortar and pestle, combine coriander, ginger and garlic. Pulse a few times or mash to a coarse paste. In a a bowl, combine paste, coconut milk, fish sauce and lime juice. Stir until blended.
  • In resealable bag, combine chicken and marinade. Marinate in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours or overnight.
  • Drain chicken from marinade, discarding liquid. Lightly oil grill grates and arrange chicken in a single layer on grates. Over hot coals, grill chicken for about 5 to 7 minutes and then turn to grill other side for another 5 to 7 minutes or until a thermometer inserted reads 165. For moister meat, limit turning during grilling. Remove from heat and allow to rest for about 3 to 5 minutes before slicing
