Grilled coriander pepper chicken

I was looking for some simple and tasty chicken recipe online.  So this recipe inspired me by “In My Kitchen”.  We really enjoyed it!


  • 1kg chicken thigh (boneless and skinless)
  • 6 cloves of garlic, peeled
  • 2 tsps salt
  • 1 tbsp black peppercorn
  • 1/2 cup firmly packed chopped coriander leaves, stems and roots
  • 1/3 cup fresh lime/ lemon juice
  • Half a chilli (for the punch)


  1. Score chicken thigh sideways.
  2. Pound garlic, salt and peppercorns to a paste in a large mortar.
  3. Add coriander and chilli and continue to pound.
  4. Scrape paste into a small bowl and stir in lime/ lemon juice
  5. Rub paste all over chicken and into the scores.
  6. Leave it to marinade for at least 1 hour.
  7. Preheat griller to hot. Cook chicken for 10 minutes each side , be careful not to poke or move it.  Or bake it in the oven 350 degrees for 1 hour.

Serve with salad or stir-fried Asian greens.
