Since this is APAHM month, I figured why not make another Asian dish. This Vietnamese Caramel Chicken comes together nice and quickly, not to mention EASY!!! You can have dinner ready in 35 minutes or less. I say less because some people can slice, dice and mince like a beast! I, on the other hand, fail….I’m not at that level yet! Someday, someday.
I start off cooking the chicken in the wok for about 2-3 minute then I put it in the deep fryer for another 2-3 minutes. This process will result in a crispier chicken. If you don’t have a wok, you can use whatever frying pan you have. The deep fryer is optional, however it will take a bit longer to cook in a pan, but not too long.
First, slice up the chicken into 1 inch width then season it and set it to the side. Mince and slice your veggies, Add the chicken in batches into a hot pan with oil over medium heat. Cook for about 3 minutes if you’re adding the chicken to the deep fryer next. Cook in the deep fryer for about 2-3 minutes then set it to the side.
If you’re not using a deep fryer, cook until chicken is well done about 1o minutes then set to the side. Add sliced onions into a pan of hot oil over medium heat. Cook the onions for about 5 minutes until translucent and soft stirring frequently to prevent the onions from burning. Add the ginger and garlic.
Cook the ginger and garlic for about a minute or until fragrant. Add the soy sauce, fish sauce, rice vinegar, brown sugar and lime juice. Set stove to medium and stir to mix all the caramel sauce ingredients together. Add the chicken and coat the chicken with the caramel sauce. At this point you can add more salt and seasonings if needed. Serve with rice and garnish with green onions. Enjoy!
