JGE 40 - Vietnamese Caramel Chicken, Kale Salad, and Strawberries

Good Day,

I chanced upon the recipe for Vietnamese Caramel Chicken on Rasa Malaysia. Oh yeah, I get regular updates from Bee from her site.  And this recipe intrigued me.  The great part - 10 minutes prep time, and 10 minutes (give or take) in cooking time.

And damn for sure... it was quick and easy and as Jim's gotta eat.  The list of ingredients was super easy, but I did substitute boneless, skinless chicken breast for the boneless chicken thighs.

Ingredients - Chicken Breasts, Oil, Garlic, Jalapeño; Marinade: Fish sauce, Sugar, Black Pepper; Sauce: Fish Sauce, Water, Sugar, Apple Cider Vinegar.

Marinated chicken charred in a cast-iron skillet... Removed to rest.

The Sauce -

Garlic and Jalapeño to taste -

Chicken returned to skillet with oil, garlic, jalapeño...  And I turned the heat to simmer and covered for about 5 minutes.

Massaged Kale, Garlic, Lemon Salt, and Oil -

Fresh Strawberries as a compliment.  (Hell I thought I needed some other color, as well.)

My plate - Vietnamese Caramel Chicken, Kale Salad, and Strawberries.

This Jim's gotta eat.   And this will be a re-do.
