"Rich, exciting flavors make this grilled chicken an exotic favorite. Arrange cooked chicken pieces on a serving platter lined with salad greens or a banana leaf. Garnish with cilantro (coriander) sprigs and serve with salad or steamed rice." — Skye

Delicious Thai Taste. My family thought it tasted just like they ordered it from their favorite Thai Restaurant. I served the chicken with Peanutty Noodles.
Mixed reviews in our house- I thought this was much to sweet and didn't have the balance of sweet and spicy I so enjoy with Thai food. I recommend making it hotter or adding garlic or something.
I was in a hurry to cook dinner and picked this recipe based on everyone else's great reviews. We all loved the chicken, although my husband and I enjoyed it more than the kids. Will definetly make again. Have been wondering why the recipe calls out for *breast halves, chopped*. Why chopped? Also, the directions call it *coriander paste* - where is the coriander in the ingredients??6/7/04-I made this recipe again last night and pleased to see recipe was corrected based on my input. This time I used boneless chicken breasts and they were fantasic. Also, instead of fish sauce - I use soy sauce. Thank you again for a *10* recipe.
Excellent chicken! I thought the cilantro would be overpowering, but it wasn't. The taste was delicious and even my picky pre-teen children loved it. I used boneless chicken breasts, grilled about 7 minutes per side and they turned out moist and tender. I'd serve this to even the pickiest eaters because the taste is so flavorful.
Excellent recipe but DEFINITELY wear gloves while handling the peppers and the completed marinade. I didn't and ended up soaking my hands in cold/ice water for hours!
I mixed the marinade in a ziplock bag and then added fresh chicken then put in deep freezer to take camping. It took a day or so to thaw in the cooler and was great on the grill however I did use a disposable tin tray to cook on, the marinade has a bright yellow color and would be a mess to clean off the grill or anything like clothing. I served it with a sesame ginger pasta salad and it was a nice change from meat and potato's.
Wow! We've made this a couple times and LOVE it! Next time I'm going to put it on skewers to make grilling easier. (The smaller pieces are tastier, but they're hard to grill.)
I made this for a family barbecue and was worried that I was going to have too much left over since there was so much food including other meat dishes. It was the only dish that was cleaned right out. I used chicken thighs (skin on) and ignored all the fuss about cilantro roots etc. and just used two bunches of cilantro with the heavier stems and roots cut off and discarded. I used an entire can of good quality coconut milk for basting only because I didn't want to waste any and it created a wonderful coating. There are lots of flare-ups on the BBQ but all the flipping is worth the reward at the end. I will make this often.
