Yield: Yields 2/3 cup sauce.
A last-minute basting of a lemongrass and cilantro paste gives this dish a wonderful aroma. The tangy ginger-lime dipping sauce is also great with other roasted or grilled meats and with steamed fish.
Fruity-floral Rieslings and Gewürztraminers are ideal. Try Kabinett-level Rieslings from Gunderloch and Zilliken. Or try these varietals: from California, Edmeades’ Mendocino Gewürztraminer or Bonny Doon’s Pacific Rim Riesling; or from the Pacific Northwest, Amity Gewürztraminer of Oregon or Hogue Riesling from Washington.

I just made this tonight and it's incredibly delicious! It was super flavorful and moist! Here's how I made it a little faster than the recipe. I got the chicken in the marinade in the morning and roasted it 9 hours later. I just put it all in a large ziploc bag and turned the bag every hour to get the entire chicken well marinated. I spatchcocked the chicken to cook it faster and let all the skin get a chance to brown. Then, I roasted it directly in a cast iron pan for 30 minutes at 375F, and then cranked up the heat to 400F for another 15 minutes. I basted the chicken with it's own rendered fat every 10-15 minutes. Once the chicken came out, I gave it one last basting. Make sure to spoon up some of the browned bits in the pan or run your cut chicken pieces through it. There's huge flavor there! With the sauce, I doubled the lime juice since I prefer a more tart dipping sauce.
I made this over the weekend. Absolutely Fabulous! I marinated the chicken overnight, so I was just able to pop it in the oven on Sunday night. The chicken was so juicy and flavourful even the breast meat. Served with some chayote squash and carrots in a garlic lime butter sauce that complimented the dipping sauce for the chicken well. I will definitely make this one again.
I have been making this for years. The original magazine recipe is so stained and tattered that I have to go online for the ingredients list. The chicken is moist and tender and the dipping sauce is to die for. I serve this over saffron studded Jasmine rice along with simply steamed snap peas and a refreshingly cool Thai cucumber salad with chopped peanuts. My husband always requests that we not have guests so he can have more for himself. Slightly laborious, but well worth it.
Fantastic chicken! The whole family inhaled this dish. The chicken was tender, juicy and full of flavor. Roasting times were right on. Served with some stir-fried Thai cabbage and carrots followed by coconut rice pudding for a great meal.
