    This was very good. Since my fish sauce was too old I opted to use soy sauce instead, thus four tablespoons soy sauce. The chicken was done in 40 minutes, smelled heavenly and tasted delicious. Did not need any extra salt. This will certainly be made again. Thanks for submitting this recipe  -  20 Mar 2011


    Really tasty. Made the marinade into a sauce to go with it, by boiling it up with a little water and some cornflour to thicken it. Great recipe.  -  29 May 2015


    Used different ingredients. Used soy sauce instead of fish sauce.  -  20 Mar 2011
