Thai chicken marinade sauce

1 batch is enough for 5kg of chicken

30 mins

Super Easy

I never grill chicken or poussins without marinating them first. This marinade is super-easy and extremely delicious. I learned it from a chef I crossed paths with in the Wichian Buri district in the north of Thailand (where they’re famous for grilled chicken). At this one eatery, they grill up to 3,000 chickens a day!

Once you’ve got the marinade down, you’re ready to make my grilled spring chicken.


Piece of chicken coated in Rosa


  • 7 tablespoons brown sugar

  • 200g evaporated milk (I recommend Carnation brand)

  • 3 teaspoons ground white pepper

  • 3 tablespoons oyster sauce

  • 1 tablespoon light soy sauce

  • 1 teaspoon seasoning sauce

  • 1/2 teaspoon rice wine

  • 1/2 teaspoon sesame oil

  • 1/2 teaspoon fried garlic

  • 1 teaspoon chicken stock powder (I recommend Knorr brand)

  • 2 teaspoons turmeric powder




  1. Mix all of the ingredients together in a bowl and stir until the sugar has dissolved.
  2. Marinade the chicken in the sauce for 15-20 minutes.
