   If you don't like coriander, use basil or mint instead. For a spicier
   dish, increase the chili sauce.
   
   In a blender or by hand, combine coriander, chili sauce, soy sauce, oyster
   sauce, garlic and sugar. Spread on chicken and marinate for 4 hours or
   overnight.
   
   Preheat broiler or barbecue. Broil chicken skin side down for 4 minutes.
   Turn and broil 4 minutes longer until skin is crispy and chicken is cooked
   through. Cut chicken in 1/2-inch strips.
   
   Place lettuce leaves on platter and arrange chicken on top. Carnish with
   coriander, mint sprigs and green onions.
   
   To eat in the Thai manner, roll chicken in lettuce leaves along with herbs
   and onions. Dipp into dipping sauce. Alternatively, serve lettuce, chicken
   and garnishes together.

   rolls and most everything else.
   
   Combine sugar, water and vinegar. Bring to boil and boil for 5 minutes.
   Stir in garlic, fish sauce and chili sauce. Simmer for 2 minutes. Cook and
   add lime juice and shredded carrot.
