Tai Chicken

Blog Princess blogged this fabulous recipe a few weeks ago and it has
become a favorite at Willow Manor. I am posting it again, in case
some of you missed it. The only thing I do a little differently, is I use
chicken thighs instead of chicken breast. Thanks BP!! :)

Tai Chicken Satay

1-2 lb. skinless, boneless chicken thighs, cut in chunks
1 tsp black pepper
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp ground coriander
½ tsp turmeric
1 clove garlic, chopped finely or crushed
1 tbsp veg oil
1 tbsp soy sauce
1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
1 tsp fish sauce

Marinate the chicken in the mixture for for several hours
or overnight in the fridge. Saute chicken in oil in large skillet
until golden and cooked through. I served it with steamed
rice and stir fried veggies.

(When the chicken was cooked 3/4 through, I drained
the broth from the pan and added it to the cooking veggies,
along with a bit more soy sauce and garlic. The chicken
continues to crisp and the veggies are flavored.)


  1. This sounds delicious, easy, and fast -- all positives in my book. Thanks for sharing the recipe; I can't wait to try it. The professor doesn't care for saucey, sweet Asian dishes but this I think he can handle.

  2. Your cooking always looks delicious! ....I do like a nice stir-fry now and then. Will have to give this a try for sure :)

  3. I like that these ingredients are all readily available without having to search all over town for them. You were good for the Mexican casserole, so I'll trust you on this one too. Now, to add "tumeric" to the shopping list...

  4. Ooh, I love the sound of the variation Willow - I shall try that.

  5. This looks and sounds delicious. I will definitely give it a try, Willow.

  6. Yummy!! This sounds like a nice weekend dish for us..I also need to try that Mexican Casserole.

  7. It sounds delicious to me too. I love Curry Chicken and it reminds me of that. Yummy. I don't cook much anymore...could you just box it up and send me some?

  8. Sure! Dry ice should keep it fresh, don't you think? :)

  9. Willow, I made a simple stir-fry tonight with broccoli, green onions and marinated chicken using this recipe. It was delicious – a bit of spice, with a wonderful, subtle blending of flavors! I was a little apprehensive because the fish sauce I used had been in my frig or more than a year, but apparently it was okay because here I am writing about it… Thanks for stopping by my blog and for your kind comments regarding the painting. Oh, and the bread turned out great, except I used regular rather than Kosher salt, so it was a tad salty. I love that recipe. It looks impressive and has a wonderful texture. And it’s really easy.

  10. Sharon, the blend of flavors with just a little kick is perfect, isn't it? It is so fast and easy, too. I'm going to be making it a lot. Glad you liked it!

  11. I am glad you reposted this. Your picture caught my attention first (birch tree lady?) Then I saw the recipe. I think I will give this a try. Sounds like a new twist for chicken this summer on the barbeque.
    Very lovely blog! I enjoyed my visit.

  12. Yes, although I've never tried it, this recipe would be perfect on the grill. Thanks so much for stopping by the nice to meet you!

  13. Such a fun and exotic blog. So glad to have stopped for a visit. Will definitely be back. Hope you have a lovely day ~ hugs ~
