Vietnamese Lemongrass Chicken

April 08, 2009
This is a typical Vietnamese dish...lots of lemongrass, fish sauce...One pot dish is what I like best... meat and vegetables - all in one...

  • 3 chicken breasts - dice into bite size (or beef)
  • 2 stalks lemongrass - blend into paste
  • 2 dried chilli
  • fish sauce
  • salt and sugar to taste
  • carrots, onion, sweet peas
  • coriander sprigs
Add 1 tbspn of cooking oil into a wok or saucepan. Cook the chicken meat in batches for about 3 minutes - to seal the juice. Put it a side. Saute onion until translucent. Add lemongrass, and dried chilli. Add the chicken, fish sauce and sugar (to have that 'tinge of sweetness'). Lastly add vegetables (pre-cooked the carrots in the microwave).
