Expert Tips

Like many Asian recipes, this highly seasoned chicken combines flavor opposites to yield an entree that practically explodes with taste. Here, the recipe mingles sweet (coconut milk), sour (vinegar), and salty (soy sauce, fish sauce) with spicy (curry, hot pepper flakes) and crunchy (chopped peanuts).

Fish sauce, nam pla (Thai) or nuoc mam (Vietnamese) is a fermented sauce with a pungent odor and distinctive flavor important to many Asian dishes. Purchase it at an Asian market or in the international aisles of large grocery stores.
