Vietnamese Chicken with Lemongrass & Ginger
1.5 kg. chicken breast fillets, skin off
1-2 teaspoons salt
6 stalks lemon grass
6 spring onions
4 teaspoons minced ginger
1-2 teaspoons 'Loves Pantry' Hot chilli, garlic and ginger sauce
1 tablespoon palm sugar
4 tablespoons fish sauce
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 cup roasted peanuts, crushed


The beautiful flavours of chilli, lemon grass and ginger really compliment this easy and nutritious recipe. Serve with stir-fried Asian noodles or simple steamed white rice.

Cut the chicken into small serving pieces, about 6 per chicken breast.
Remove the tough outer leaves from the lemon grass and finely chop the tender inner stalks. Finely chop the spring onions.
Mix the chicken with the lemon grass, ginger, chilli and garlic sauce, spring onions, salt and pepper in a large bowl and toss well to cover the chicken with the flavourings. Allow to marinate for 30 minutes.
In a wok, heat the oil and add the chicken mixture and palm sugar and stir fry until well cooked through, tossing all the time. Add the fish sauce and peanuts and continue cooking. When ready, the chicken should be golden with a pungent aroma.
