Ingredients You'll Need

1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 shallot, minced
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1-1/4 pounds skinless boneless chicken breast, cut into large chunks, rinsed
1-1/2 tablespoon minced fresh ginger
1/2 teaspoon minced fresh chilis (optional)
2 teaspoons light brown sugar
2 tablespoons Asian fish sauce (nuoc nam or nam pla)
1/2 cup chicken broth or water
2 green onions (white and most of the green part), cut into 1-inch lengths
1 tablespoon chopped cilantro
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper, or to taste


Heat the vegetable oil in a clay pot or other pot over medium heat.

When it is hot, add the shallot and garlic an cook, stirring, for 2 to 3 minutes, or until fragrant.

Add the chicken, ginger and chiles.

Cook for 2 minutes or until the chicken loses its raw look.

Add the brown sugar and stir for 1 minute.

Stir in the fish sauce and cook for 1 minute.

Add the chicken broth and bring to a boil.

Reduce heat to low and simmer for about 15 minutes, or until the chicken is done.
