vietnamese chicken rice, originally uploaded by pearlyn83.

I’m not too sure if this is an authentic vietnamese dish but it’s served in one of the Vietnamese restaurants here in Hobart and is a favourite of many. My housemate, Krystal came up with her own version and this is a recipe I got off her.


  • Chicken thighs, washed and cut to about 1.5 inch pieces
  • Soy sauce
  • Fish sauce
  • Salt
  • Sugar
  • Pepper
  • Dash of sesame oil
  • Breadcrumbs
  • Garlic flakes, optional


  • Lime juice
  • Lemon juice
  • Garlic
  • Fresh Chillies
  • Fish Sauce
  • Salt
  • Sugar
  • White vinegar


  • Season chicken thighs with seasoning for at least 1 hour.
  • Coat with breadcrumbs and garlic flakes. Deep fry or roast in oven at 200C.
  • Mix ingredients for sauce together. Dissolve sugar either by heating mixture in a saucepan or using the microwave. Sauce is sweetish with a touch of sour and spicy. Adjust according to taste.
  • Serve with warm rice (I read somewhere you could cook rice with mint leaves) and omelette.
