I’ve been neglecting Into the Vietnamese Kitchen of late due to holidays and the need to clean out the freezer. I couldn’t neglect it any longer though, I was missing those heavenly flavours. So tonight, we had had the grilled chicken with salt pepper and lime dipping sauce served western style with a simple green salad which I garnished with coriander and Vietnamese mint.

Grilled Chicken
chicken thighs (I used breasts because it’s all I had)
1/4 teaspoon palm sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoons black pepper
1 tablespoon fish sauce
1 tablespoon lime juice
2 tablespoons rice bran oil
Mix ingredients together and massage well into chicken. Marinate for around 2 hours. Grill until cooked through and slice into strips to serve.

Salt, Pepper and Lime Dipping Sauce
coarse salt
white pepper
lime wedges
thinly sliced chilli
Serve separately for everyone to make their own little dipping sauces to taste.
