  1. Thanks for sharing this tempting recipe with us and for simplifying it. By cleaning with the light coconut milk, do you mean just soak them in it? I would like to try this recipe but want to get it right.

    • Pang

      Yes, you soak the chicken & pat dried 🙂
      So happy to have you ‘here,’ Hilda.
      XOXO

      Awww… Miriam, Thank you so much for being ‘here.’

  4. Pang! So I was swamped with emails when I saw this and figured I would just miss this one and read your next post. But when I saw the photos I knew I HAD to check it out. Just gorgeous! The levels are all so perfect. What a sweet story about your mum.. I always had such a hard time leaving home whenever I’d come home for a break during college & law school, but I am definitely way more emotional than your mother!

    • Pang

      Awwwww… Cheryl, I am so thankful to have you in my virtual life 🙂
      You just always know how to make my day. I am so glad that you liked the post and checked it out. yay!!!!!
      Good luck on sorting out all your e-mails, by the way. 🙂

      P.S. I don’t doubt for a second that you would be more emotional than my mom cause most everybody would be… hahaha


  5. Normally I worship from afar but I wish to let you know that all of your recipes are so beautiful to look at, and I think that this one will have to be made very soon. Gorgeous!

    • Pang

      Thank you SO MUCH for your kind words, Kellie.

    • Pang

      Olga, I did not know you are THAT girl… wow!!!!
      I would love to hear how it goes with this recipe when you make it, yes? My mom told me it would taste better grilled than baked, so I am pretty sure you will like it.

  8. Oh, Pang! This post made my heart squeeze — it must have been so tough to leave Thailand. But I’m so glad you had a good trip there, and thank you so much for sharing these delicious chicken burgers!! They look and sound fantastic.

    • Pang

      It was particularly harder this time, but I am now trying to adjust to my old life in SF. Thank youuuuu, Cynthia 🙂
      I am glad you like the post, by the way. My mom would be happy if you try it 🙂


  9. Mmm yum coconut cream! I haven’t ventured into cooking with it in savory dishes because i’m too scared I’ll mess up, but this recipe seems easy enough. By the way, your photography is stunning. If you lived in the states I wouldn’t hesitate to learn from you. Great eye!

    • Pang

      Thank you so much for your kind words, Rakhi. 🙂
      Please let me know how it goes with the dish when you make it; don’t be scared, you can definitely do it.

      BTW, I live in San Francisco 🙂


  10. Pang these pictures are amazing! I would love to try this burger but frankly I wish I had your ideas in my head!! I love the composition and the colors, it’a simply beautifully done 🙂 The time we spend with our families is precious- I know that well, and I have not seen my mom for more than a year now, so I’m happy for you and that time you could spend with yours. Enjoy all this love and positive energy she gave you and use it any time you feel like you need it. Hugs xx

    • Pang

      Awwww… Thank you SO MUCH for your kind words, Marta. I am so happy you like those photos. 🙂
      You are definitely right about family time. I lost so much of it since I moved to the U.S., but I tried to get as much as possible when I visited home. Hope you get a chance to see your mom really soon, my friend.

      xoxo


  11. What a sweet story about your mom – I bet it was so nice for you and for her to be back home for so long. Also – WELCOME BACK TO SF! These burgers sound delicious – thanks for sharing your mom’s “secret” recipe;)

    • Pang

      I hope you make it, Sarah 🙂
      And I am so thankful to have you as my virtual friend. <3 <3 <3

  12. Welcome back Pang! Although, I don’t blame you for missing your home. I would choke up too, if I had to leave such a wonderful home & family. But I am so glad to see that you brought back these wonderful flavors. I mean, this recipe looks fantastic. And I’m in love with that sparkling burger photo! Too cool.

    Thank you for sharing this piece of your childhood and life with us. xo

    • Pang

      Awww… You are so sweet as always, Meghan. Leaving home this time is particularly hard, but I am glad to be back as well.
      So happy you like that sparkling burger.. haha I do like that shot, too, and so glad you are with me.
      Hope you try the recipe, Meghan. And thank you SO MUCH for being ‘here.’

      xoxo


  13. Welcome back Pang! I’m happy to see you blogging again…and I’m going to catch up on your Thailand and new aunt posts shortly 🙂

    This looks delicious!

    p.s. You live in SF? So do I!!! Maybe we can get coffee or brunch one day?

    • Pang

      We definitely should meet up, Joyti. Maybe after New Year, yes?
      So happy to see you ‘here.’

      xoxo


  14. A seriously gorgeous recipe Pang! I can only imagine how hard it must have been for you to leave.. What a special treat that we can now make such a wonderful recipe. Thank you and your mom for sharing it with us!

    • Pang

      My mom is happy to know that I am sharing her recipe with all of you, and she will even be happier if you make it. 🙂
      Thank you so much for your kind words as always, Maria … xoxo

    The recipe looks very good! I have spent some time in Thailand. I was there with my son, who has been there several times (he had a girlfriend there for a while). Anyway, a street vendor was selling packets of palm sugar mixed with ground chilies, plus either papaya or mango to dip into it. I tried it…and loved it! Do you know the proportion of sugar to chili? Would our brown sugar be a good substitute? And do you have any idea which fruit it was? Sorry for all the questions, but I’d really like to make it here in Canada!.

    • Pang

      Hi Fran,
      I am so happy to hear that you liked our street food so much that you wanted to created at home 🙂
      Reading your comment, I am pretty sure you meant fresh Asian guava. The dipping ‘sauce’ originally is made from palm sugar, salt, fresh chillis. Yes, you can use brown sugar, but it won’t be the same as what you once had. Here’s how: crush the chilis (the more you crush, the spicier it’s going to get). On a separate bowl, mix 2 tablespoons brown sugar with 1 teaspoon salt, then add the chilis. Mix well & enjoy. Hope it helps. 🙂
      Thank you for stopping by.

  16. Fran

    Thanks so much for your reply! Can’t wait to try out the recipe!

    • Pang

      Thank youuuuu 🙂

    This looks amazing! Question, what type of chiles?

    • Pang

      Hi Niki, they are Thai chiles 🙂
