Thai Grilled Chicken

Super Easy Thai Grilled Chicken marinated overnight and grilled until crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside!


This Thai Grilled Chicken is one of my favorite ways to prepare chicken on the grill. The chicken gets marinated overnight or for a minimum of 3 hours and grilled until crispy. The chicken comes out incredibly juicy and tender on the inside.

This Thai Grilled Chicken is loaded with flavor. The marinade is made of fresh ginger, garlic, thai chili sauce, low sodium soy sauce, fish sauce, light brown sugar, fresh squeezed lime juice and Sriracha. You can make it as spicy as you would like with a kick of sriracha. I like to double the amount in this recipe because I like it extra spicy!

I love to serve this Thai Grilled Chicken with Cilantro Lime Rice and a Salad. It’s the perfect summertime meal!
