    The Flying Chef's Note:

    This is a super simple meal that has wonderful flavour and can either be made for a main meal or as a light meal depending on the amount of rice cooked. As we are trying not to eat too many carbs at the moment and this was for a main meal I served ours with less rice and some sauced bok choy which paired really well. As you can only buy lemon grass in such large quantities here I have found a brand that is already made into a paste. I used to always use fresh but ended up throwing half of it away before I could use it, so I asked at my local Asian grocery store once what she had and she told me about the paste. It tastes just as good but to me it is more concentrated than fresh so I used 1 Teaspoon in this recipe, I would use 1 Tablespoon if using fresh.

      I made this for Russ and me tonight using 300g chicken (so half the amount) but I made 2/3 of the marinade and sauce. I used thigh fillets as I prefer them to breasts and, as we are currently in a remote area of Aus, I subbed finely chopped lemon rind for the lemon grass (it's not available and if it was it would be an astronomic price!). This was very quick, very tasty and really low fat (the current nutritional data would be much lower if the breasts used were listed as skinless). We ate this over rice with stir fried veg finished with oyster sauce on the side. It was a lovely dinner thanks TFC.
