Vietnamese Caramelized Chicken - Ga Kho

I came across this recipe for Vietnamese Caramelized Chicken, or Ga Kho, over at Ravenous Couple. It looked scrumptious, and I actually had everything the recipe called for, so I made it.

I was a little worried at first, because of the amount of liquid, and also because said liquid was boiling sugar. Boiling sugar and me do not really get along.


But after a while, the sauce reduced as promised.


And reduced.


Until I was left with this.


Beautiful, shiny, sticky, sweet, sour, spicy. Go make this.

Hey Dennis - It was delicious! And way less nerve-wracking than I thought it would be.

Vicki said...

Hey CC - I haven't tried any of the Pho Hiep's yet, maybe I'll make it down to Linda Vista soon. Catfish sounds great with this sauce.

hi - i haven't been to the linda vista location, but the one on telegraph canyon near vons (off the 805 in c.v.) is pretty good.
