How to Make Caramel Chicken

In this video, Chef John shows you how to make a delicious, Vietnamese-inspired caramel chicken recipe that’s based on the famous chicken dish served at a popular San Francisco restaurant. You’ll learn why chicken thighs are your best bet for this one. Then you’ll see how to caramelize the brown sugar-based sauce, cooking it down to a syrup that adheres beautifully and deliciously to the chicken pieces. Serve this delicious mahogany-colored chicken over white rice garnished with cilantro, sliced jalapenos, green onions, and roasted peanuts. And in a Chef John BONUS moment, you’ll learn why he recommends eating it while listening to the Rolling Stones. Get the recipe for Chef John's Caramel Chicken.
