    Teresa M's Note:

    This recipe comes from Chef Viet Tran of New York City's and Philadelphia's Le Colonial Restaurants. I posted this in response to a recipe request. I have neither tasted or made this. (Prep time will depend on how long you marinate. Use your own judgement on how much you shrimp you want with this).

      This recipe makes my mouth sing, and creates instant joy when eating it. I cannot get Vietnamese food where I live and this is my favorite Vietnamese main course. I followed the recipe as written. Super yummy! Thank you for posting!

      Love this recipe! Since I didn't have vermicelli noodles, I put the chicken over a bed of lettuce, and amazing!

      My family loved it. I marinated the chicken for about half the day. Next time I would make more sauce since my family liked it. In the restaurants they add spring rolls so I might do that next time. I have been trying recipes from this site all week and today my kids said we should have this again next week (which doesn't usualy happen with new recipes). We also bought the "red" fish sauce at the chinese market. Thanks for the recipe. now we can have Vietnamese food at home!!
