This was an excellent meal, accompanied by Tomato Rice. I started by preparing the rice to the point where I could leave it to cook, and then made the chicken, the timing was perfect. I found this recipe perfect as is and particularly liked the cubed onions. Only thing, I should have doubled the recipe, it would have been so nice to have extra to enjoy again today! I will be making it often. These recipes were made in loving memory of Annelies, gone too soon and sorely missed.
***Made for Pets'R'us Cookathon event May 2010*** This was wonderful! The sugar was a pefect balance for the ginger. I used green onions for mildness and the "green" on top. I also used oyster sauce instead of fish sauce. Great recipe!
It seemed to be missing something. I put in extra garlic and ginger but maybe a little sesame oil would help.
I made this last night and it was super easy and we enjoyed the flavors. I think next time I may increase the garlic and the ginger...just because I like a strong flavor. I also used oyster sauce like one of the other reviewers for the same reason. I didn't brown my garlic either because I've heard the garlic can get bitter if it's browned..so, just sauteed for a bit. Served with broccoli and egg drop soup. Thanks so much for this recipe. I will make this one often I'm sure!
We loved this dish. I have made it twice. The 1st time I made it as stated, except I used half the sugar. The 2nd time I used half the sugar and changed the fish sauce to oyster sauce. I don't like the smell of the fish sauce. Very tasty with white rice and a few snow peas for color.
I don't often rate recipes as five stars, simply because a lot of food is nice or even good, but its only the rare exceptions that are "outstanding". This I would rate 10 stars if I could. I absolutely love it. The Nam Pla (fish sauce) is a phenomenal addition and I will be making this again and again! Thank you for such an excellent dinner! (Oh, I might add a bit more ginger in future as I only got slight hints of the ginger, but that would be down to personal taste) Reviewed for Photo Swap 08
This makes very tasty chicken! The fish sauce adds depth of flavor. I used a red onion, sliced, and a little more than one pound chicken. I used the full amount of sauce, and it did not seem excessive. I think I'll add some blanched green beans to the mixture next time. Thank you very much for sharing this recipe with us.
TERRFIFIC! The ingredients make a mouthfeel you won't believe. VERY FAST dish to prepare. (i misread the instructions and tweaked too, semi-creating another dish which i'll post as Ga Gone Thai.)
