Lemongrass Chicken



You will need:

4-5 boneless chicken thighs

3 tablespoons minced lemongrass/ 3 stalks (only the white section)

2 tablespoons brown sugar

2 tablespoons fish sauce

1 teaspoon black pepper

3 cloves minced garlic

3 shallots (minced)

2 tablespoons sesame oil

1 tablespoon light soy

1 tablespoons thick sweet soy sauce


Note: You can use fresh stalks or buy the minced version, usually in freezer section.



Step 1 : Deboned chicken thighs (if you did not buy boneless)


Step 2: Mix all the ingredients above


Step 3: Mix marinade into chicken well


Step 4: Marinate for 3-6 hours

Step 5: Grill~ (or pan fry for about 4 minutes on each side and finish off in 475F oven that is set of broil/grill)

Serve chicken with white rice, some shredded lettuce & tomato slices and fish sauce.


To make the fish Sauce (I use the same sauce for my springrolls):

3 cloves garlic (minced)
2 thai bird’s eye chili (minced, I take out the seeds coz I can’t take spicy stuffs too well)
1 lime (squeezed for juice).
1 medium carrot grated
2 tablespoon sugar dissolved in 1 cup warm water
~ 2 tablespoon fish sauce
(but keep adding till you get your desired taste… I used about 3 tablespoon)

Mix everything, adjust seasonings to sauce the way you would like~
