Grilled chicken in bamboo tube is a famous dish of the Thai ethnic minority people in several northwestern provinces.

The dish features chicken that is marinated with ‘mac khen’, a signature pepper used in the region, for about an hour and then placed in a hollow bamboo section.

The chef closes the section with dong leaves (phrynium placentarium) for added flavour before grilling the tube.

The meat comes out tender in a golden colour with a blend of aromas imparted to it by the bamboo and the leaves.
