“Black Pepper Caramel Chicken is a traditional Vietnamese dish madewith chicken thighs, shallots and red chili peppers, jalapeños, and cilantro.”
This is a traditional Vietnamese Chicken dish made with a sticky spicy and sweet caramelized sauce with shallots, garlic, chilies, fish sauce, rice vinegar, brown sugar, ginger and coarse ground black pepper. The chicken thighs are cooked right in the sauce then tossed with Fortune Chicken Udon Noodles and garnished with fresh cilantro and sliced jalapeños for extra heat and bright flavor.
Black Pepper Caramel Chicken is a traditional Vietnamese dish made with chicken thighs, shallots and red chili peppers, jalapeños, and cilantro.
tossed in a luscious caramel sauce made with brown sugar, fish sauce, vinegar, red chili garlic sauce, fresh garlic, ginger and freshly ground black pepper,
all mixed together and reduced in a pan into a gorgeous sticky spicy sweet glaze to coat the chicken.
The noodles are cooked separately, then drained and sprinkled with the packaged chicken-flavored seasoning,
then tossed back into the pan with the cooked chicken and sweet savory Black Pepper Caramel sauce. For serving I topped the dish with a dash of Everything Bagel seasoning (you could also just use white or black sesame seeds if you like), a few sliced jalapeños and fresh cilantro for an extra kick of heat and bright flavor.
You guys, this noodle dish is to die for! These Udon noodles are precooked so they only need to be reheated for a few minutes before serving. And they’re perfectly durable for holding this gorgeous thick glaze on the chicken, and full of ALA Omega-3’s, are non-GMO, zero trans fats, with only .5g of fat and 5g of protein in each serving!
You can also try this recipe using their Mushroom or Original Shoyu Udon Noodles for another layer of flavor to mix it up. Try pairing it with an oaky Napa Chardonnay or grassy Marlborough NZ Sauvignon Blanc to balance out the spiciness and sweetness of the dish. Superb!
Absolutely delicious…Hope you enjoy! And feel free to comment below and please share this post on social media with the hashtags @artfulgourmet @jslfoods #fortunenudonoodles #cheftyaki #udonsoups
