Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Combine cilantro, Thai basil, fish sauce, green onions, lime juice, lime zest, brown sugar, ginger, kosher salt, and 3/4 teaspoon pepper in a medium-sized bowl.

  • Combine chicken thighs and cilantro mixture in a gallon-sized zip-top bag. Marinate in the refrigerator 8 hours to overnight, turning occasionally.

  • Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat and lightly oil the grate.

  • Drain chicken thighs and discard marinade. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

  • Add chicken to the preheated grill and cook until no longer pink in the centers, 7 to 10 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center of each thigh should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C). Serve immediately.
