Vietnamese BBQ Chicken Recipe

The Vietnamese BBQ Chicken Recipe offers a delicious and distinctive flavor, as the marinade thoroughly infuses the chicken, resulting in succulent and mouthwatering bites. To achieve the best results, it is recommended to fry the chicken on medium low heat until it turns brown on both sides and the meat is fully cooked, with clear juices. After cooking, allow the chicken to rest for 5 to 10 minutes before slicing.

For this recipe, you will need 1.5 ounces (425 grams) of thinly sliced chicken breast. The marinade consists of seasoning soy sauce, fish sauce, oyster sauce, sugar (adjustable to taste), BBQ pork or roasted pork seasoning, 5 spices powder, black pepper, and vegetable oil or olive oil to prevent the meat from drying out.

To prepare, thoroughly mix and marinate the meat for a minimum of 4 hours, or ideally overnight, allowing the flavors to permeate the chicken. When ready to cook, grill the marinated chicken over medium heat for approximately 4 minutes on each side. Ensure the chicken is fully cooked by flipping it once more and cooking for an additional 4 minutes.

Serve the Vietnamese BBQ Chicken with options like rice, noodles, or a Vietnamese vegetable salad. Enhance the dish with a side of sweet fish sauce, garnished with fresh mint, basil, and cilantro for a burst of flavor and color. This recipe provides a delightful taste of Vietnamese cuisine, combining tender chicken with a well-balanced blend of savory, sweet, and aromatic elements. Enjoy this flavorful dish!
