Caramel Braised Vietmese Chicken

Submitted by: PMGOHIO

Introduction

My son found this recipe in the newspaper and it is truly delicious. Be warned, however, that when you pour the fish sauce in, it STINKS!! You'll think you can't possibly eat it. But try it anyway. Tastes like a dream. My son found this recipe in the newspaper and it is truly delicious. Be warned, however, that when you pour the fish sauce in, it STINKS!! You'll think you can't possibly eat it.

Ingredients

    2 Tbsp sugar
    2 Tbsp water
    1/4 cup fish sauce
    1/4 cup water
    1 onion, chopped
    2 cloves garlic
    1 sweet red pepper, sliced
    1/8 - 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
    1/4 tsp black pepper
    1 lb. boneless chicken, cut into 1" strips
    Fresh cilantro (don't leave this out!)

Directions

Combine sugar and water in 10" skillet and heat over medium heat, swirling pan to dissolve sugar. Don't use a spoon or whisk; it will not turn out well. Simmer for 5-8 minutes until the mixture turns a golden amber. Combine fish sauce and water; remove pan from heat and slowly add the fish sauce/water combo. Swirl pan to mix. Add onions, garlic and seasoning. Cook onions for 2 minutes. Add chicken and red peppers, cover and cook over medium heat for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally, until chicken is cooked through. Remove from heat and add chopped, fresh cilantro. Serve over rice. Makes 4 servings.
