How to make it
- Season chicken with just the right amount of salt & pepper. Put cooking oil in a thick-bottomed skillet over medium high heat.
- Try the temp of the oil by dropping a very small piece of the chicken. You would know it's ready if the piece sizzles immediately after hitting the oil.
- Arrange chicken pieces in the skillet in one layer, skin side down & cover. Let it sit for about 5 mins or until skin is golden brown.
- Meanwhile, in a small sauce pan, melt the sugar over low heat.
- Once melted, take it off the fire & add the fish sauce, shallot/onion & pepper. If melted sugar solidifies, just whisk thoroughly until it goes back to liquid stage & put it back over low heat for about 2mins more.
- Flip the chicken & let the other side cook for about 1min uncovered.
- Flip it once more so that the chicken is skin side down again then pour the caramel sauce over the chicken.
- Add the lemon juice, grated lemon zest & ginger. Cover & let it simmer over low heat for about 10-15 mins.
- Serve with rice. Goes best with coleslaw or corn & carrots. Enjoy!
