  1. Season the chicken with pepper. In a bowl, mix the garlic with 2 tablespoons of the cilantro, the fish sauce, brown sugar and chili powder; rub over the chicken and let stand for up to 1 hour.
  2. In a small bowl, toss the remaining cilantro with the basil and mint. In a large nonstick skillet, heat the oil until shimmering.
