This is really good over barbecued chicken breasts. Feel free to try it with other types of poultry, or whatever sounds good to you. Adapted from a Ming Tsai recipe. Times are estimates.

Top Review by Baby Kato

I really enjoyed this tasty dish. I thought it was perfect, quick and easy to make with tremendous results. The sauce was amazing. The flavors were excellent, lemony, sweet, spicy and savory with lovely textures. I decided to leave the sauce as is and didn't puree. It added to the overall flavor. Served with Coconut Rice with Snap Peas and buttered carrots for a memorable meal. Thanks so much for sharing a recipe that I will make again.

Directions

  1. In a medium pan saute lemongrass, ginger and shallot until soft, about 5 minutes.
  2. Deglaze vegetables with the wine; reduce by about 80 percent.
  3. Add the juice and zest of the lemon, chicken broth and sugar, and reduce it to half.
  4. Whisk in the butter. Puree with a hand blender (it won't be a totally smooth consistency). Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
  5. Serve over chicken that has been baked or barbecued. Enjoy!
