DIRECTIONS

  • Saute garlic, onion and ginger in oil for 30 seconds over med heat.
  • Add chicken and saute until chicken meat turns white. Add fish sauce.
  • Cover and simmer until chicken is almost completely cooked (7-10 min.). At this point, there will be a fair amount of broth, since all the juices from the chicken are coming out.
  • Add water (I usually add 3/4 cup and that gives me a pretty good, concentrated flavor. my mom adds a little more than a cup, and the flavor is much mellower and sometimes I add more fish sauce at the table. really, you should just experiment).
  • Add chayote and simmer for 5 minutes or until vegetables are tender.
  • Serve over rice.
