Vietnamese Lemon Chicken

Recipe from: mamabear
Servings: 4

1 pound boneless chicken, cut into large cubes
2 teaspoons honey
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon sugar
2 garlic cloves, finely minced
1 teaspoon oil
½ teaspoon cornstarch
2 scallions, finely sliced
3 tablespoons lemon or lime juice
2 tablespoons fish sauce
1 tablespoon oyster sauce
2 tablespoons lemon or lime zest, grated
12 bamboo skewers, soaked in water for at least 10 minutes

Marinate chicken in a mixture of honey, salt, pepper, sugar, garlic, oil, cornstarch, scallions, lemon or lime juice, fish sauce and oyster sauce. Set aside for 15 minutes. Add grated lemon or lime zest.

Thread marinated chicken onto skewers, leaving two inches free at each end and place on a baking sheet. Heat oven to 375°F and bake about 20 minutes until chicken is medium-rare. Turn oven to broil and broil chicken until brown. Do not overcook.

Serve with rice vermicelli and Sweet and Sour fish sauce. Can also be served with rice. Garnish with bean sprouts, basil, and mint.
