All-Purpose Asian Box Meat Marinade

Note: This marinade works well with pork or beef as well.

2 cups fish sauce

2 cups brown sugar

5 cloves garlic, minced

2 shallots, minced

1 teaspoon black pepper

1/2 cup canola oil

Boneless chicken thighs, with skin

1. Using a blender or food processor, mix the fish sauce, brown sugar, garlic, shallots, pepper and oil until the marinade comes together, but isn't quite pureed.

2. Marinate the chicken thighs for 2 to 24 hours, using 11/2 cups of the marinade per pound of chicken. Any extra marinade will last about a week in the refrigerator.

3. Grill chicken over medium heat until cooked through, about 12-15 minutes.
