Basic Lemongrass Marinade

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by L. Duch

This marinade is wonderful for any meat, but I use it on chicken then grill it. It's wonderful. The smell of the fish sauce is awful, but the end result is delicious.

I wanted to stir fry chicken, and this was perfect. I marinated chunks of chicken for about 1 1/2 hours, then dumped the whole thing into a hot skillet. I added water to make it loose. Served over fried rice. Very good.
