Southern Thai Chicken

This was a good twist on the normal chicken dish..  It had an interesting combination of flavors and was simple to make.  I highly recommend letting this chicken marinate overnight to really soak up the flavors.

  • 5 chicken thigh cutlets, skin on and bone in (around 2.5lb / 1.2kg) (Note 1)


  • 4 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 2½ tbsp fish sauce
  • 2½ tbsp oyster sauce
  • 1 tsp white pepper, ground
  • 3 tbsp finely chopped basil leaves
  • 1 tbsp ground turmeric
  • ¼ cup brown sugar (or coconut sugar)


Combine marinade ingredients in a bowl or a gallon ziplock bag.  Marinate for at least 3 hours, preferably overnight.

Remove chicken from the refrigerator an hour before cooking.  Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or tinfoil.  Bake for 50-60 minutes, until the tops are golden brown.  

Remove from oven and serve.
