5 chicken thighs


  • ¾ cup dark brown sugar

  • cup rice vinegar

  • cup cold water

  • cup fish sauce

  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce

  • 4 cloves garlic, crushed

  • 1 tablespoon fresh grated ginger

  • 1 ½ teaspoons crushed red pepper

  • 1 teaspoon vegetable oil

  • 5 boneless, skinless chicken thighs, quartered

  • ½ cup chopped green onions


  1. Whisk dark brown sugar, rice vinegar, water, fish sauce, soy sauce, garlic, ginger, and crushed red pepper together in a bowl until sugar is completely dissolved.

  2. Heat oil in a skillet over high heat. Add chicken; cook until golden brown, about 5 minutes. Pour in 1/2 cup of the brown sugar mixture. Cook and stir until sauce is thickened, about 5 minutes more.

  3. Pour in remaining sauce; cook until the juices run clear, 10 to 12 minutes. An instant-read thermometer should read 165 degrees F (74 degrees C). Top with green onions.
