Thai Grilled Chicken with Sticky Rice and Sweet Chili SauceThai cuisine is tangy, spicy and aromatic. Today's grilled Thai chicken is accompanied with sticky rice and a delicious serving of sweet chili sauce. For cooking sticky rice, Thai bamboo steamer basked is preferred. If it is not available, you can use your regular steaming method. For chili sauce, use the right combination of jaggery and brown sugar to get the best results. You can either use a whole chicken or can cut it in pieces, though the authentic version uses the former approach. This recipe is ideal for a Sunday brunch. You can use the same ingredients for a grilled version of duck too. To make it irresistible, squeeze a dash of lime on the grilled chicken just before serving. Let's make this tasty Thai chicken recipe.
