Gkai kamin is a very popular Southern Thai style dish. It's delicious, simple and super-easy to prepare. It goes well with rice, but better with a fresh papaya salad.

I've used this recipe several times now with some slight variations with what I had on hand. I used ground lemon grass in a tube, and I used 2 TBSP of dried ground tumeric. I put all the marinade ingredients in a ziploc bag and used a mallet to crush it all together. I then scooped the paste out and rubbed it all over the chicken, put the chicken back in the bag and marinated for several hours. It is a DELICIOUS way to prepare chicken, and has become one of our favorites. - 26 Feb 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Delicious! A word of caution though, this has permanently stained my marble mortar and pestle a bright orange. Any ideas on how to remove the stain? - 15 Aug 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
