What a lovely recipe Amanda. I enjoyed this dish very much. Loved the use of the snow peas, lemongrass and kaffir leaves, so yummy. We really enjoyed the soft subtle flavors in this delicious chicken dish. I served it over jasmin rice. Thanks for sharing a dish that I will make again. Made for Diabetic Tailgate party.
