This week, we'll offer a few exotic and not-too-hard-to-prepare Asian recipes.
1/2 cup rice or cider vinegar
1/2 cup sugar
2 cloves garlic
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoons crushed red pepper flakes
3 lbs. chicken breasts, thighs or legs
3 cloves garlic, halved
3 tablespoons fish sauce
1 bunch cilantro, chopped (stems removed)
To make sauce, place vinegar in small, nonreactive saucepan and heat to a boil. Add sugar, stirring until dissolved. Lower heat to medium-low and simmer for 5 minutes. Set aside.
Rub chicken with garlic cloves. Add salt and pepper. Marinate chicken in fish sauce and cilantro (large bags work well).
Grill chicken. Serve with sauce.
