Story Behind this Recipe
The chicken I ate from a food stand during my vacation in Thailand was really delicious and unforgettable. It was charcoal-cooked, and the meat was really soft and juicy. I tried recreating it in the oven. In Thailand, they eat this with steamed sticky rice.
Allow the meat to marinate overnight and the delicious flavor will really come through when cooked. Use honey for a beautiful glaze. Serve with sweet chili sauce or shichimi red pepper to taste.
