How to Make Thai Roasted Chicken with Thai inspired BBQ Sauce


  1. Rinse the chicken in water and pat dry. Place chicken breast side down on carving board and with a knife or kitchen scissors remove the back bone by cutting down each side of the neck bone. This is called Spatchcock. (you don't have to do this but it cooks faster and absorbs the marinade better). Turn the chicken over and lay it out flat and place in a container big enough to hold the chicken
  2. Mix the marinade ingredients together and rub all over the chicken and let marinade at least 6 hours or overnight. Turning the chicken a few times in the marinade.
  3. Preheat oven 375 degrees. Add the chicken to a roasting pan with the marinade. Add the chicken stock and onion. Bake for 1 to 1 1/2 hours until chicken in no longer pink or internal temp is 165 degrees. Remove from oven and place chicken on carving board to rest.
  4. Strain the pan drippings and and discard the solids. Place the drippings in a pan and bring to a boil on the stove and let reduce for 15 minutes. Add the brown sugar and ketchup and whisk until well incorporated.
    Mix cornstarch and water together to make a slurry and add to liquid to thicken. How much you need will depend on how thick you want the sauce.
  5. Serve the sauce over the chicken.
