“A simple tasty way to grill chicken (or pork loin!). This comes from the Hot Sour Salty Sweet cookbook. I usually serve it with sticky rice and stir fried veggies, but it's very versatile! Use less or more crushed red pepper flakes according to your taste--this can get quite fiery!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. To make the sauce, bring vinegar to a boil in small non-reactive sauce pan. Add sugar and stir till dissolved. Reduce heat to medium and let simmer 5 minutes. Add 2 cloves garlic and crushed red peppers. Cool to room temperature and pour into glass jar. Leftovers will keep in the fridge for a couple weeks.
  2. To make the meat, combine peppercorns, 5 cloves garlic, coriander seed, and fish sauce in mini food processor. Whir till a lumpish paste forms (if needed, finish grinding with a mortar and pestle). Spread paste over chicken and cover. Marinate in the refrigerator for several hours.
  3. Preheat a grill or broiler. Thread meat onto skewers and grill for 3-4 minutes on a side. Serve with dipping sauce.
  4. Marination time not included in time to make.
