Chicken with Lime-Chili Sauce


  • 1 1/2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 3 scallions, white and green parts chopped
  • 2 tablespoons  vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon  lime juice
  • 2 teaspoons  honey
  • 2 teaspoons  fish sauce (nam pla)
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 3/4 cup  rice wine vinegar
  • 3/4 cup  sugar
  • 1 tablespoon  finely chopped cilantro, plus whole leaves
  • 1 tablespoon  finely chopped peanuts
  • 2 dried red chilies, chopped or 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes


1. Cut chicken into 1-inch cubes and place in a bowl. Combine scallions, oil, lime juice, honey, fish sauce and garlic in a blender until nearly smooth. Pour over chicken, cover and chill for 30 min or up to 3 hr.

2. For the dipping sauce, cook vinegar and sugar over medium-high heat in a small saucepan. Simmer until reduced slightly, about 4 min. Cool, then add cilantro, peanuts and red chilies.
