1 ¾ – 2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts, pounded to an even thickness
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger root
4 scallions, white and green chopped, plus additional whole scallions for garnish
2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil
2 teaspoons brown sugar
1 tablespoon fish sauce
1 tablespoon oyster sauce
2 teaspoons soy sauce
2 teaspoons canola oil
1 teaspoon kosher salt
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro leaves
Place everything, except the canola oil, salt and cilantro, in a bowl and toss to combine. Cover and refrigerate for at least one hour and up to four.
Sprinkle the chicken with the salt. Place a large cast iron or non stick skillet over high heat and when it is hot, add the canola oil. Place the chicken, skinned side down, in the skillet, one at a time, waiting about 30 seconds between additions. Cook until well browned and cooked throughout, about 5- 7 minutes per side.
Transfer the chicken to a platter and serve immediately garnished with the cilantro leaves and additional scallions.
