Gai Yang

This wasn't the recipe I thought it was. I'm still looking for what I intended to cook (something with chicken and chilies that I'd made a few months ago but seem to have misplaced the recipe for). But this turned out pretty darn interesting anyway.

Broiled Chicken with Sweet Chili Sauce (gai yang)
from Vatch's Thai Street Food

for the marinade
2 TBSP sesame oil
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 tsp cilantro root, finely chopped
2 small fresh red chilies, finely chopped
2 TBSP fish sauce
1 tsp granulated sugar
14 oz. boneless chicken breast

for the hot and sweet sauce
6 TBSP rice vinegar
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/2 tsp salt
2 garlic cloves, minced
3 small fresh red chilies, finely chopped

In a large bowl, mix together ingredients for marinade and let marinate for 30 minutes.

Meanwhile, make the hot and sweet sauce. In a small saucepan, heat the vinegar and sugar and stir until dissolved. Add the salt and simmer, stirring until the liquid thickens. Remove from heat, pour into small bowl and let cool. When the sauce is cold, stir in the chopped garlic and chilies.

Preheat the broiler. Broil the marinated chicken for about five minutes per side or until cooked through. Serve with sauce.
