  • Put chicken thighs in a resealable plastic bag, pour marinade over chicken, and marinate for 2 hours or overnight for an even better flavor.

  • Preheat the grill to medium-high heat and oil the grate.

  • Remove chicken thighs from marinade, discarding marinade.

  • Grill chicken thighs until they are no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, about 3 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

  • Remove from grill and allow to rest for a few minutes before serving.

Cook's Note:

You can find lemongrass paste in the refrigerated section of the produce department at your grocery store.

If you like a sauce with the chicken thighs, bring the marinade to a boil in a saucepan and thicken with a cornstarch slurry (equal amounts cornstarch and water).

Have to say, one of the best chicken recipes! I have made it with coconut aminos and GF soy sauce, and has been great both ways! Made it exactly, but always have to add more garlic! Rave reviews from everyone and so simple! Read More

Fantastic recipe! The only change I made was to use lemongrass powder in place of the paste. I let these marinade all day. We served this with cilantro-lime Jasmine rice (that I made in my IP), and lemon green beans. Everyone loved it! This is one that I will be making again and again. Thanks Lutzflcat for the recipe!

Very nice. Had no lemon grass paste so used a chopped piece of lemon grass. Served with Eggplant with Garlic Sauce a very nice match. (had a bumper crop of eggplant this yea!) A keeper & do again. Read More
