  • ¾ tsp Fine sea salt, plus more as needed
  • 1 tbsp Oyster sauce
  • 1 tbsp Soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp Honey or brown sugar (light or dark)
  • 1 ¼ pound Boneless, skinless chicken thigh, leg, and/or breast, cut into strips about 3 inches long and 3/4 to 1 inch thick
  • 3 clove Garlic roughly chopped
  • 2 tbsp Chopped cilantro stems or roots
  • 2 ¼ tsp Black peppercorns
  • 2 tbsp Canola or other neutral oil
  • Thai sweet chilli sauce


  • In a medium bowl, stir together the salt, oyster sauce, seasoning sauce, and honey.
  • Taste the marinade and make sure it is salty enough. Add up to 1/4 teaspoon salt, if needed.
  • When satisfied, add the chicken and stir, coating well.
  • Cover with plastic wrap and set aside for 30 minutes (or refrigerate for up to 8 hours).
  • Meanwhile, in a small food process (or use a mortar and pestle), grind the garlic, cilantro and pepper into a paste. It will be grainy but relatively smooth. (The mixture can be covered with plastic wrap and left to sit at room temperature for hours before being used).
  • Add the garlic mixture to the marinated chicken, stirring to coat well.
  • Thread the chicken onto the skewers, covering most of each skewer. For succulence, give each loaded skewer a gentle squeeze to ensure that the meat hugs the skewer. 
  • Lightly oil a cast-iron stove-top grill pan and set over medium-high heat. Or, prepare a medium-hot charcoal fire or preheat a gas grill to medium-high (you can hold your hand 6 inches above the grill for 3 or 4 seconds).
  • Brush the skewers with 1 tablespoon of oil. Cook the skewers for 8 to 12 minutes, turning frequently and bast­ing with the remaining 1 tablespoon oil.
  • Until the meat is slightly charred and cooked through. Nick a piece with the point of a knife to check.
  • Serve the skewers with the chile sauce.
