    Terese's Note:

    I served this at a dinner party and it was very popular. Do not expect heat or intensity or even subtlety. Instead you will have a rather heady, aromatic dish. Service with rice or rice vermicelli.

      Lovely. My first recipe from the site and first time using coconut milk and lemongrass. Well actually, I improvised to save some calories by par-boiling (for 5 mins) some sweet potatoes (instead of frying) and added in 150ml of low fat evaporated milk with 1/2 teaspoon of coconut essence (instead of coconut milk). I also added some brocolli. I didnt follow recipe exactly, just used the same ingredients in various quantities. I added to rice noodles. It gave a wonderfully refreshing tasting. I will definitely be experimenting further with this combination of herbs and spices.

      A really good recipe thanks Terese. We only used one cup of stock along with the (light) coconut milk as I thought it would be a bit "soupy" with the full amount (600ml). There seems to be a mistake at step 5 (and I didn't have time to contact you) so we cooked the chicken until it turned white, then proceeded. We had ordinary basil, and that added a nice (if not authentic) flavour, and I think I would add a bit of fish sauce next time.
