Holy vinegar! This ran me completely out of apple cider vinegar, and only put a cup in. Even with toning down the vinegar, it was pretty much unpalatable. No one would touch it except me (the vinegar lover) and even I had trouble with it.

I loved this recipe! I did make some changes though. I was only cooking for two and used chicken tenders(about 8) instead of a whole chicken. I used 8oz. of tomato sauce and put about 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar. My guy isn't really a vinegar guy, so I tamed it down using a little bit of sugar, some basil, and a dash of savory. Very tasty!! Thank you for this recipe!


This is very similar to my family's dish for more than a hundred year I'm still trying to find out where they got this from because no other Vietnamese know it. It taste very good and I love it!
