Mix Chicken Thigh with oyster sauce, soy sauce, sugar, coriander seed, ground chilli and garlic together then marinated the chicken for one hour.

Preheat the skewer grill oven to 180 C and grill chicken for 15 minutes.

In a small saucepan, pour fish sauce, tamarind concentrate and sugar over medium low heat. Keep stirring to dissolve the sugar. Bring it to a boil and remove from the saucepan and let it cool.

When the sauce is completely cool, add the rest of the ingredients. Mix well, and put a bit of fresh cilantro around the dish.

Take two sticks of lemon grass and stick it through the chicken and decorate with red oak, cherry tomatoes, and parsley on top.
