Vietnamese Style Caramelized Chicken Recipe Video
The Slanted Door is a very popular Vietnamese restaurant in San Francisco. It’s always packed with locals, tourists and visiting celebrities. One of the most popular dishes there is called “Caramel Chicken.” This stunning dish is an amazing combination of sweet, spicy, and salty flavors all sticking to succulent pieces of chicken. My version adds peanuts for a little crunch, and I’ve simplified the technique so you can easily make this at home, right on the stove top. Their version is cooked in a clay pot, which most of us don’t have lying around. By the way, it’s been reported that this is Mick Jagger’s favorite dish when visiting San Francisco. Mick once asked, “Brown sugar, how come you taste soooo good?” So it’s fitting that’s what we’ll use to caramelize the chicken as you’ll see in the video. Enjoy!

Looks like a great dish but there's no mention of how much fish sauce or how much ginger to use (both key ingredients). Sheesh!

It looked like he was using 1/3 cup on the sauce and about a teaspoon of ginger.

This recipe is spot on. I love the idea of cooking the chicken in a little bit of sauce to really coat the chicken and give it a nice sear. Delicious. Thank you.
