How to Make Pok Pok's Kai Yaang, the Ultimate Roast Chicken

Related To:

Chicken doesn't have to be boring, and Pok Pok's chef, Andy Ricker, proves that with his cult-favorite dish, Kai Yaang. A whole roasted chicken is brined, stuffed with Thai aromatics like lemongrass, garlic and cilantro, then marinated in soy and fish sauces and basted with shallot oil and honey to ensure maximum flavor.

If you can't get to Pok Pok in Portland, Oregon, or its outposts in Los Angeles and Brooklyn, you can check out Ricker's recipe for Kai Yaang here. Then watch him make it with Man Fire Food host Roger Mooking on Tuesday, August 16 at 9pm ET on Cooking Channel.
