Method

  • 01
  • Preheat oven to 225C and heat a char-grill pan or barbecue to medium heat. Toss chicken in fish sauce, then grill, turning occasionally, until almost cooked through and well charred (15 minutes). Transfer to an oven tray and roast until chicken is cooked through (10 minutes; if using a barbecue, transfer to a disposable foil tray and close the lid on the barbecue).
