This is a recipe shared by Lam Soon Company using one of their products ‘Fish Sauce’ in a food magazine. Quite a simple recipe to follow yet it turned out to be a tasty and delicious chicken dish served with rice.
It has a very unique salty taste and all the ingredients [chicken, carrots and onions] are full of flavours.
Recipe adapted from Yum Yum Magazine No. 72 [with slight modifications]
