I did something entirely non-conventional with this recipe! I used fish instead of chicken and it was FABULOUS. I used Black Cod and followed the rest of the recipe pretty closely. I did replace cilantro/coriander with basil. It was delightful! The fish was super moist. The soy sauce definitely did not overpower it, nor did the lemongrass. I spritzed a bit of lime juice over the fish when I served it and it had this generally mildly thai-inspired flavor to it. My whole family love it! I think you should try it!
I made this with chicken breast, proportions as given but double lemon grass and it was nice immediately after cooking but a few hours after it got really really dry, impossible to eat. I guess you should not attempt it with chicken breast. Maybe I will try it again one day with chicken legs.
This was very good. The chicken was super tender and basting with soy sauce made a delicious glaze. Made for ZWT6.
This meal rocked! I followed it as it was and it was fun to make and the flavors were excellent. We had it with jasmine rice and steamed baby bok choy tossed with olive oil, salt and pepper! Thanks Susie.
wooooooow!!!! this is so simple and sooo tasty! i agree with sydney mike.. mine only took about 10 minutes, but i cut the portion to 1. i have never used lemon grass either but really enjoyed it with the soy sauce! and the lime and cilantro used to serve with the chicken add even more to the already tasty chicken! i love this recipe for its simplicity and flavor! i will definately be making this again and again! whenever i have no time for sure! great recipe! made for zwt4
First off there's no way this recipe takes 45 minutes to prepare ~ More like 10 minutes, although I didn't think to time it! With the lemongrass (which I've never used before!) & the soy sauce, this chicken was very tasty! By the way, I left out the salt, 'cause of the soy sauce! Thanks for a great meal!
