Finally! Another Vietnamese dish. I’m slowly adding these to my recipe book, although I am still the most proud of my ability to make pho. =)
I found this recipe (link here) while perusing some food blogs and of course, sent it off to my Mom for her to look at it. She approved, recommending that I allow the minced garlic to sit in the marinade for at least half an hour so the flavor would be in the marinade even more, so I did that.
It was pretty simple – the hardest part, really, was deciding on what thighs to get at the grocery store! I typically only buy chicken breasts so I had to decide between bone-in, boneless, skins, skinless, all this stuff I normally never worry about when buying chicken breasts.
After that it was all pretty easy – I just had to marinate the chicken overnight, and then the next day I cooked each side in the pan and then broiled it to finish cooking. The flavor that was infused in the chicken was great and reminded me of my mom’s cooking. I served it with white rice and broccoli, of course.
Here it is
