Huge fan of Hot Thai Kitchen, they have some of the best authentic Thai recipes online! Their Gai Yang recipe is delicious, the chicken is sweet, charred, and savory, accompanied by a tangy and refreshing dipping sauce that goes good with any protein.

Overall, the recipe was easy to follow, I have most of these ingredients in my pantry making preparation a breeze.

I did use a free range chicken for this meal, I won’t do that again, the mea was too lean and rubbery for my taste. Other than that, I can see my self coming back to this recipe in a month or two.
