  1. Cut cilantro roots off at the stem, and mince thoroughly. Set aside a few leaves for garnish. In a blender or food processor, combine cilantro roots and leaves, garlic, chile peppers, turmeric, curry powder, sugar, and salt. Process to a coarse paste. Pour in fish sauce, and blend until smooth.
  2. Place chicken in a large shallow dish. Rub with the cilantro paste. Cover, and marinate in the refrigerator at least 3 hours, or overnight.
  3. Preheat grill for high heat.
  4. Lightly oil the grill grate. Place chicken on the prepared grill, and brush liberally with coconut milk. Grill chicken 8 to 15 minutes on each side, depending on the size of the pieces. Turn only once, and baste occasionally with coconut cream. Cook until browned and tender, and juices run clear.

Delicious Thai Taste. My family thought it tasted just like they ordered it from their favorite Thai Restaurant. I served the chicken with Peanutty Noodles.

I mixed the marinade in a ziplock bag and then added fresh chicken then put in deep freezer to take camping. It took a day or so to thaw in the cooler and was great on the grill however I did u...

Wow! We've made this a couple times and LOVE it! Next time I'm going to put it on skewers to make grilling easier. (The smaller pieces are tastier, but they're hard to grill.)

Wasn't sure what part of the cilantro to use, so I just used mostly leaves, and probably not quite enough. I was a little concerned about an overwhelming cilantro flavor, but that was NOT a pro...

Mixed reviews in our house- I thought this was much to sweet and didn't have the balance of sweet and spicy I so enjoy with Thai food. I recommend making it hotter or adding garlic or something.

I made this for a family barbecue and was worried that I was going to have too much left over since there was so much food including other meat dishes. It was the only dish that was cleaned rig...
