This simple Thai inspired marinade uses sweet, sour and spicy ingredients to infuse flavour into a whole chicken.

  • Prep Time:
  • Cook Time:
  1. Preheat oven to 200°C (400°F).
  2. In a large bowl or resealable plastic bag, mix all ingredients except chicken. Add the chicken, coat well and marinate in the refrigerator for 4 hours (or more if possible).
  3. Place chicken on a baking sheet covered in aluminum foil. Bake in preheated oven for about 40 minutes or until a thermometer inserted in the breast or thigh indicates 77°C (170°F).
  4. Serve with wide rice noodles and snow peas.

For optimal flavour, spatchcock the chicken before marinating. Remove the backbone using a knife or kitchen shears and pull open to flatten. This way, the chicken can marinate perfectly.
