The Ravenous Couple - Ga Roti

Mom got jealous. Check out dat chicken breast doh…

This picture and recipe is an oldie, but goodie. Here is the original recipe from The Ravenous Couple: Ga Roti Vietnamese Roasted Chicken. The Ravenous Couple always has spot on Vietnamese recipes that give me the foundation I need when practicing my Viet cooking skills.

Here is the recipe I have been using… I’ve also gifted people this marinade in little mason jars!


  • 1 lb chicken thighs – I prefer skin off and bone in, but you do you
  • 2 tablespoons of soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon of five spice powder
  • 1 tablespoon of honey
  • 1 teaspoon of black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon of white pepper
  • 1 teaspoon of sesame oil
  • 2 teaspoon of minced garlic

What to do

  1. Combine all of the ingredients except chicken in a bowl and ensure all of the ingredients are homogenous
  2. Add chicken thighs to the marinade
  3. Marinate the chicken overnight or at least 6 hours…you can marinade it in less time, but it won’t taste as good.
  4. For best results, grill the chicken and enjoy! You can roast or cook it however you want…but grilling is the way to go.
