- Place coriander seeds, peppercorns, garlic, salt and oil in a large mortar and pound with a pestle until a paste forms. (Or pulse ingredients for 1 minute in a spice grinder or mini-chopper until combined.)
- Rub paste over cut-up chicken to coat. Marinate for 2-4 hours in the refrigerator.
- Meanwhile, make the dipping sauce: combine rice wine vinegar and honey in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat and then simmer over low heat for 2-3 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add remaining ingredients and simmer for an additional 2 minutes. Set aside and cool.
- Pre-heat barbecue or broiler on high. Cook chicken on both sides for 6-8 minutes or until juices run clear when cut with a knife.
- Transfer chicken to a serving platter garnished with fresh coriander leaves. Pour dipping sauce into small individual bowls and serve.
