Thai Barbecue Chicken

Traditional Thai Barbecue Chicken uses cilantro roots; however I didn't have any so I toasted some coriander seeds in a dry pan and then ground them up to a powder.
Prep Time 2 hours 15 minutes
Cook Time 25 minutes
Total Time 2 hours 40 minutes
Servings 6


  • 3 pounds chicken drumsticks or thighs
  • 4 tablespoons fish sauce
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons curry powder
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric powder
  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 2 tablespoons minced garlic
  • 1 rounded teaspoon ground roasted coriander
  • Thai Sweet Chili Sauce for serving


  1. Cut slits in drumsticks if desired. Mix remaining ingredients together in a ziploc bag and add chicken. Shake to coat pieces evenly. Lay chicken on a plate and refrigerate for at least 2 hours, flipping bag over after an hour.
  2. Grill until cooked through.
