    Phammy's Note:

    I got this recipe from a family friend, but it's a popular vietnamese dish. I try to make this for dinner every once in awhile and I always make more sauce because it goes really well with the vegetables. If you don't want to make more sauce, maggi (a type of soy sauce) goes really well with the chicken and rice.

      I have made this chicken several times and not bothered to write a review. Made it again today and thought I really ought to write a review because this is honestly such a simple, almost fool proof recipe that's very forgiving and tastes divine! Serve it with Vietnamese tomato fried rice (google for recipes. I use butter, garlic, tomato paste, soy sauce and an egg), tomatoes and cucumber to make it extra special tasting. Really good for impressing dinner guests and looks lovely. Love how all the ingredients are always at hand to make this!

      Made it with 5 legs & thighs - doubled the sauce - deglazed pan with dry sherry (& a generous splash of fish sauce - always with the fish sauce) & poured over the legs/thighs in a 9 x 13 inch Pyrex dish with I covered with foil. Sliced a bunch of green onions in 1/2 & quartered them to add in the last 15 minutes. Served with simple salad of iceberg lettuce, thin sliced cucumbers & shaved carrots. Delicious - on the table in under an hour from start to finish. Real keeper - Thank you Phammy!
