Vietnamese Caramel Chicken
Hello again! welcome to the final 2021 edition of the Improv Cooking Challenge. This month we are cooking something, anything, that involved Caramel and Cashews. And I have to say, I am SO excited there is another savory dish on this line up. I love looking at these challenges and finding something unexpected.
Vietnamese chicken is a thick, sweet, sticky, chicken cooked in a palm sugar and coconut caramel. The caramel and chicken is topped with a tangy, vinegary salad the is the perfect foil for the rich sauce.
Did I modify this from the traditional? Just ever so slightly, and I do apologize. I swapped the fish sauce for soy sauce due to allergies. If you can eat fish sauce I recommend replacing the soy sauce I have listed for the fish sauce. I imagine the taste is superb.
