This dish uses the classic Vietnamese braising method that uses caramelized sugar as the base for the braising liquid. If you can find Chinese brown sugar (check out its Ingredient Discovery profile to learn more), it will give the braise a deep, complex flavor.

This is outstanding!
This was one of the best meals ever to come out of our kitchen - and it was unbelievably easy. We used a whole cut-up chicken rather than just thighs, but other than that followed the recipe almost exactly. The leftovers were just as good as the original. This will definitely be on the menu frequently.
