Vietnamese Caramel Chicken
Caramel chicken – the easiest and most delicious Asian chicken dish ever with sticky, sweet and savory caramel sauce. Ready in 20 mins!
Vietnamese food is an up-and-coming Asian cuisine in the United States. In the past 10 years or so, Vietnamese cuisine has captured the heart (and tummy) of many diners. We love the crispy Vietnamese spring rolls, chicken pho, lemongrass chicken, bahn mi, and so much more.
One of the most popular recipes here on Rasa Malaysia is Vietnamese lemongrass chicken, a chicken recipe that many of my readers have tried and become a staple in their dinner rotation.
This Vietnamese caramel chicken is another recipe that is sure to whet your appetite. It’s an amazing dish with the simplest ingredients, so easy to make, but it’s absolutely delightful. I have been ordering this dish from Vietnamese restaurant, but it was the first time I attempted it at home. I referred to the recipe by The Ravenous Couple and it was an instant hit with my family and friends.
Fish sauce is a staple ingredient in Vietnamese cooking, so make sure you pick up a bottle of high quality fish sauce. While many people are skeptical about fish sauce because of its pungent smell (from a low-grade brand), a good fish sauce doesn’t smell funky. Made with anchovies and salt, fish sauce is a natural umami bomb that makes everything so much better. The next time you go shopping or buy online, look for Red Boat Fish Sauce or Magic Chef, and you are good to go. Enjoy!
