  • 1 pound chicken breast - fillet cut into thinner pieces
  • 2 tablespoons fish sauce
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • ¼ -½ cup flour
  • ¼ cup oil
  • 2 tablespoon butter
  • 1 cup cilantro - chopped finely
  • 1 cup all-purpose cream


  • In a bowl, combine chicken fillet, fish sauce, and pepper. Mix well and marinate for at least 30 minutes to an hour.
  • Dredge each piece in flour covering all sides completely. Over medium-high heat, fry in hot oil until golden. About 2-3 minutes on each side. Remove fried fillets from oil and set aside.
  • On the same pan over medium heat, melt butter. Add cream and let it simmer. Once it starts to simmer add the chopped cilantro. Add 1 Tbsp of the dredging flour if you want to make the sauce thicker.
  • Add back the fried breaded chicken fillets to the sauce and let it cook for another minute. Serve.



If you have an aversion to cilantro, this recipe works very well with parsley as well.
Although I highly recommend using fish sauce for the marinade, salt may be used as an alternative.
