    Soy-Lime Dipping Sauce

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Remove 2 Tbsp of lemongrass and set aside in a small bowl. Combine the remaining lemongrass, shallot, garlic, soy sauce, sugar, fish sauce, chili flakes and salt in a large bowl. Add the chicken and turn to coat, tucking some marinade underneath the skin. Pour any excess marinade into the bird cavity. Cover the chicken with plastic wrap, then marinate in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours, preferably overnight. Bring the chicken to room temperature before baking.
    2. 2
      Preheat the oven to 350˚F. Put the chicken, breast side down, on a rack in a roasting pan. Bake for 40 minutes. Turn the bird over and roast until the chicken is cooked and nicely browned, about 20 to 30 minutes more. About 10 minutes before the chicken is done, combine the remaining 2 Tbsp lemongrass with the cilantro and oil. Brush the mixture on the bird, then continue to roast until it is done and the juices run clear. Let the chicken rest 10 minutes before carving. Serve with Soy-Lime Dipping Sauce and fried or steamed rice. (The pan juices are delicious on the rice).
    3. 3
      Sauce:.
    4. 4
      Place the garlic, chilies and sugar in a mortar and pound into a paste. (You can also chop the garlic and chilies by hand.) Transfer to a small bowl and add the soy sauce, lime juice and water. Stir until well blended. This sauce will keep up to 3 weeks if stored in the refrigerator in a tight-lidded jar.

      Very good chicken! I used my food processor to mince the lemongrass, shallots and garlic which made prep super easy! Very juicy and flavorful dish!

      Fantastic roast chicken with a unique Vietnamese flavour that we just love! So moist and tender! The dipping sauce is wonderful and could also be used for dumplings/pot stickers. I am saving the left overs in hopes I will get some more use of it. I didn't think that the dish was too much trouble, prehaps an extra 10 min for making the marinade and the dipping sauce. Made for 1-2-3- Tag.

      This chicken browned so nicely and turned out very tender. It does require quite a bit of prep time, and although we enjoyed it, we didn't love it enough to go to all that trouble again. Made for PAC Fall 2009
