Thai Roast Chicken Recipe

oven-roasted-thai-chicken-3

Juicy chicken thighs coated in Thai spices, bliss. An easy-to-cook meal that you’ll wonder why you haven’t made it before. This oven-roasted Thai chicken recipe is tastier if you let the marinade work its magic overnight.

We love the flavours of Thai food, and this dish captures the essence of Thai for us. Fish sauce, coriander and lemongrass. Traditionally coriander root is used, you can buy it online here, we used everyday supermarket coriander. We’ll try it with coriander root next time to see if it is any different.

We served this alongside some dipping sauce and parathas to make chicken wraps.

If this looks like too much effort, then try our Thai Pumpkin Soup for an easy Thai fix.
