If you're looking for a new grilled chicken recipe to enjoy with casual beers this summer, look no further than this wonderful Cambodian version.

The key with this recipe lies in the marinade. This marinade consists of chopped garlic, sugar and salt that is smashed into a paste using a mortar and pestle, before soy and fish sauce are added. Spoon this marinade over spatchcocked and slit chicken, which can then be marinated in the refrigerator. Then prepare the glaze by heating oil and adding crushed garlic. Then add orange-red annatto seeds and cook until the oil turns a lovely orange color. You can even use paprika instead of annatto seeds.

You can then go ahead and cook the marinated chicken on the grill, whilst adding the glaze just for the last 10 minutes of the process. This grilled chicken recipe is a fantastic way for you to switch things up during barbecue season by incorporating traditional Cambodian ingredients for spectacular results.
