“I found this in the local paper, and made it for dinner. So easy, and totally divine! The chicken marinates in fish sauce, known as Nam Pla and Nuoc Nam, available at well stocked supermarkets and certainly in Asian food stores. This is a great picnic dish, served a room temperature or chilled. Marinate in advance, cooks in a snap! Serve with Japanese steamed rice and a green salad, YUMMY!”
