1⁄4 cup fish sauce

Prepare oven according to Mugnaini’s Grilling Environment
Whisk brown sugar, vinegar, chili paste, fish sauce, sriracha and ginger in a large bowl. Add chicken to bowl and toss to coat. Marinate the chicken for at least 1 hour in fridge.
Remove chicken and thread 4 to 5 pieces onto skewers and set them aside.
Reserve the rest of the marinade in a sauce pan and reduce in oven or on stove top until reduced by about half. The mixture should look thicker.
Prepare a very hot Grilling Environment and heat the grill well. Our Tuscan Grill works well for this preparation. Grill chicken, turning and basting often with reduced marinade, until cooked through, 8 – 10 minutes.
