The Reason the Chicken Crossed the Road... Bangkok Chicken

See also

Out here in the West, we don't play games. While many parts of this great country play little games with their food, we simply want to kick up the flavors! We want bold taste, we want some spice and when it comes time to eating, we want to remember it long after its been swallowed and followed with a cold beer!

Now you won't find Bangkok Chicken in Bangkok! What we did here is to take the tastes of Bangkok and give it a blast of the West. Oh hell yes, this is the best of two worlds! Very easy to make, very little time to make and even less time to eat.

Ingredients needed to make Bangkok Chicken (serves 2):

  • 1 Tbs. toasted sesame oil
  • 1 tsp. Asian 5-spice powder
  • 1 Tbs. oyster sauce
  • 1 Tbs. grated ginger
  • 1 Tbs. soy sauce
  • 2 tsp. chili oil
  • 6 chicken legs


  1. In a shallow dish, whisk all the ingredients except the chicken. Add the chicken, toss to coat and let sit at room temperature 30 minutes.
  2. Pre-heat your oven to 375 degrees.
  3. Place the chicken into a saute pan and spoon the marinade over the chicken.
  4. Place in the oven and cook 45 minutes.
  5. Pre-heat your broiler.
  6. Place the pan under the broiler and broil 5 minutes per side.
  7. Remove from the pan, place on serving plates and pig-out!
