I have picked another cookbook from Yum Yum Publications for this month's Cookbook Countdown Event#15. The chosen recipes from this book are very easy and simple, yet they are awesome.
The flavours are quite unusual with the fragrance of fish sauce and made spicy with a good quality sweet chilli sauce. I loved this dish. The chicken wings are succulent and well coated with the thick sauce. It's finger licking good.
This is an authentic and delicious Vietnamese fried chicken aka canh ga chien nuoc mam. It can be a good party dish serve with a spread of fresh salad.
Recipe adapted from Yum Yum Magazine No. 95
