The ingredients.

The first step is to make the marinade, which combines all the ingredients except the pork (although, ultimately as you can guess, the pork goes in as well).

The marinade.

Yup, you guessed it: then add the pork.

Marinading.

Marinade for at leats 10 minutes, and then grill – perhaps for about 8 minutes on each side, although your experience may differ.

Grilling.

And then it’s done and – believe me – delicious.

Catchphrase: “It’s just okay.” With that enthusiastic endorsement, the ingredients are:

  • Chicken, whole
  • Red curry paste, 1 tablespoon
  • Garlic, 3 cloves, minced
  • White pepper, 1/4 teaspoon, ground
  • Fish sauce, 1/4 cup
  • Salt, 1 teaspoon
  • Coconut milk, 3 tablespoons
  • lemongrass, chopped, 2 tablespoons
  • whiskey, 2 tablespoons

The ingredients.

The good news is that it’s fairly easy to make. First, mix everything except the chicken – this is your marinade.

Pre-marinade.

Then, put the chicken in the marinade, and leave it. I know it may be tempting to cuddle that poor, headless chicken carcass, but don’t – just leave it alone to marinate on how it arrived at such a pass.

Marinading.

Once it’s done marinating (for 15 minutes or so), bake for an hour, or until done (which in our case was longer) at 325 degrees. Then, it’s done – and you may find that the drippings add an immense amount of flavor. Feel free to eat with rice.

This chicken is done.
