3 Tbsp. chopped thick cilantro stems
3 Tbsp. fish sauce
2 Tbsp. chopped lemongrass bulb
3 cloves garlic, smashed
1 tsp. lime zest
1 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
2 Tbsp. fresh lime juice
6 small chicken drumsticks
1 split chicken breast, cut into 6 pieces

Garnish: cilantro sprigs, lime wedges, sliced fresh chilies

Combine cilantro stems, fish sauce, lemongrass, garlic, lime zest, pepper, and lime juice in a food processor and pulse until paste.

Broil chicken 8 inches from heat source about 24 minutes, turning pieces frequently, or until skin is crisp and chicken is cooked through. Garnish with cilantro sprigs, lime wedges, and sliced fresh chiles; serve with jasmine rice. Thai sweet red chile sauce for dipping and cabbage-carrot slaw, if desired.
