Caramel Chicken

Vietnamese caramelized chicken is best served in a pan with a sticky, sweet, flavorful, and moderately spicy caramel sauce. Steamed rice is a beautiful accompaniment to caramel chicken.

In the United States, Vietnamese cuisine is one of the most popular Asian cuisines.

Vietnamese food has gained a following in the United States during the past decade or two.

Spring rolls, summer rolls, banh mi, garlic noodles, and more are among my favorite Vietnamese dishes.

This Vietnamese-inspired caramel chicken dish is easy to make. The jalapeño adds a little spice to the dish.

This delectable dish will pique your taste buds. The following items are all you need to make this tasty dish:

  • Thighs of chicken
  • Garlic
  • Soy sauce, vinegar, and white wine
  • Black peppercorns, freshly ground
  • Jalapeno

In Vietnamese cuisine, fish sauce is a must-have. Fish sauce has a harsh odor that many people find unappetizing, but a high-quality product does not.

Fish sauce, a natural umami bomb made from anchovies and salt, elevates whatever dish it’s added. 

Each serving of this dish has just 444 calories. With other Vietnamese cuisines, you may serve this dish.

The following dishes are great for nutritious Vietnamese cuisine and a quick midweek dinner.


  • Chopped chicken breasts with skin, deboned into 1-pound (0.4 kg) pieces.
  • 2 tbsp. of cooking oil
  • 3 minced garlic cloves
  • 1/4 of a sliced jalapeno
  • 1 tbsp. sugar, for MARINADE:
  • Fish sauce, 1 tbsp.
  • The black pepper

  • 3 tbsp. of distilled water
  • a half-cup of sugar
  • Rice vinegar (apple cider vinegar can serve as an alternative) 3 tablespoons


  1. For 10 minutes, marinate the chicken in the marinade ingredients. Set aside the dish in which you’ll combine the Caramel Sauce’s components.
  2. Place a cast-iron pan (preferably) over medium-high heat on medium to high heat. Mix with 1 tbsp. of olive oil. Cook the chicken in a skillet with the skin side until crispy and brown on the bottom. Reapply the same technique to the skin until it begins to char. Remove the chicken.
  3. Add the rest of the oil and the garlic to the skillet. After putting the chicken in the pan, add the Caramel Sauce mix.
  4. Simmer the caramel sauce until it reaches an amber color, then remove it from the heat. The chicken is turned a few times while it is cooking.
  5. Add the jalapeno and cook for another minute or so. Serve with steaming rice right away.
