  • 4 Cloves Finely Minced Garlic

  • 3/4 Cup Light Brown Sugar

  • 1/2 Cup Rice Vinegar

  • 1/3 Cup Fish Sauce

  • 2 Teaspoons Hot Pepper Sauce, Or To Taste

  • 3 Teaspoons Soy Sauce

  • 3 Pounds Boneless, Skinless Chicken Thighs, Cut Into 1-Inch Pieces

  • 2 Tablespoons Vegetable Oil

  • 1/2 Cup Sliced, Seeded Jalapeno Peppers

  • 1/2 Cup Sliced, Seeded Mild Red Chilies Or Roasted Red Peppers

  • 1/2 Cup Roasted Peanuts

  • 1/2 Cup Chopped Green Onions, Plus More For Garnish

  1. Whisk grated ginger, garlic, brown sugar, rice vinegar, fish sauce, hot sauce, and soy sauce together in a large bowl.

  2. Place chicken chunks in a bowl. Pour 1/2 of the prepared sauce onto chicken chunks; mix until all chicken pieces are coated. Set aside 15 minutes.

  3. Heat vegetable oil in a heavy skillet over high heat. As soon as oil starts to smoke, place chicken chunks in a single layer in the pan. Cook and stir until chicken pieces start to caramelize and turn deep brown, 8 to 10 minutes. Reduce heat to medium. Stir in sliced jalapeno and red peppers, peanuts, and green onions. Cook and stir one minute. Pour in remainder of sauce. Simmer until heated through, 1 or 2 minutes. Remove from heat.

  4. Stir in cilantro. Serve over hot cooked rice and top with chopped green onions.
