Khmer, Thai, Lao grill lemongrass Chicken

 Sorry for the picture the chicken have fat on it, my grill look a bit kind of dirty but the chicken taste really good:)

2 1/2 lbs of chicken, breast, leg, thigh, wing whatever you like
1/4 cup of water
11/2 T of brown sugar
2 T of oyster sauce
2 T of soy sauce
1 T of fish sauce
1 T of lime juice
1/2 cup of lemongrass
1 T of galangal
5 cloves of garlic
3 kaffir lime leaves shredded
1 T of crush red pepper or ¼ t of black pepper (optional for spicy)
1/4 cup roasted crush peanuts (optional some people like it)

In a mortar pound lemongrass, galangal, garlic, kaffir lime leaves to paste
In a big bowl marinate the chicken with lemongrass paste and the rest of the ingredients with ¼ cup of water to it. It is best to marinate the chicken over night.

If you use chicken legs don’t take out the skin is the best part of lemongrass grill chicken
Grill the chicken on medium heat until it is done. Serve lemongrass chicken with pickle cucumber or Thai sweet and chili sauce and cooked rice.
