Food: Dinner Tonight – Easy Chicken Recipe and Oh Don’t forget the side dish

My mother, who I care for, asked what was for dinner tonight and I told her it was surprise, but had to do something with chicken. She made a face ‘chicken!’ and I walked away telling her to trust me 😉  and went searching for that fun recipe because she has grown tired of chicken or maybe it’s her cute senior attitude.

So here we go – I have everything in the cupboard except fish sauce, hate the damn thing from my childhood days.  And we are going to omit the chili – or any super spiciness – since she also can’t stomach that. Otherwise, chicken it is!

    • 1 pound skinless boneless chicken tights cut in 1-inch pieces
    • 1 tablespoon canola oil, divided
    • kosher salt
    • 1/2 cup dark brown sugar
    • 1/4 cup fish sauce
    • 1/4 cup water
    • 3 tablespoon rice vinegar
    • 1 shallot thinly sliced
    • 1 teaspoon fresh ginger
    • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
    • fresh Thai chili, halved, or dried red chili
    • 1 teaspoon coarse ground black pepper
    • 4 cilantro sprigs (optional)
    • Steamed rice  {more}

On another note – have you seen the film Houseboat? If not it will do you and your elderly parents whom you care for – some good.
