    Maito's Note:

    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.

      Add the juice and zest of the lemon, chicken broth and sugar, and reduce it to half.
    4. 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.

      This was our first time using lemongrass. It's very difficult to find. We made this to specs, sugar included. After tasting we decided to omit the salt and felt it needed to be sweeter, so we added the black pepper and 2 tbsp of honey. It was too thick for the food processor so we strained it in a cheesecloth. We poured it over baked chicken breasts and also on some carrots which gave them a delicious flavor as well. The lemongrass flavor is strong, but once strained, it mellows out to perfection. Maito, thanks so much for sharing this recipe and giving us the chance to try a new ingredient. ~2Bleu

      Very tasty! It was a tad sweet for my liking but will just cut down on the sugar a bit next time. I served it over boneless/skinless chicken breasts and it was great. Thanks for another fantastic recipe Maito!
