  • 1 tablespoon sunflower oil

directions

  • If using the long lemon grass stems, cut in half across the middle to make four short stems for a total of eight stems.
  • Coarsely chop chicken in a food processor and add egg white. Process to make a smooth paste. Add carrot, chile, chives, cilantro, salt and pepper and process to mix.
  • Place mixture in refrigerator to chill, about 15 minutes. When chilled, divide mixture into eight equal portions. Using your hands, shape the portions around the lemon grass stems. The lemon grass stem will be the "skewer" for the chicken mixture.
  • Preheat broiler to medium hot, brush skewers with oil and broil approximately 4-6 minutes. Turn them occasionally until golden brown and cooked thru. These skewers can also be grilled over medium hot coals.

    WOW! My family loved this sooooo much! My son asked me the recipe as he wants to duplicate it! I increase the amounts for 500 g chicken (4 small breast) and to the ingredients I added 1 teaspoon grated ginger. For the preparation I simply used the the food processor and I added gradually the carrot (in pieces) , chicken (half frozen and in 2 m pieces) and then the rest of the ingredients except of the lemongrass as they were my skewers! Broiled in the oven for about 15 minutes and served with my self made Asian sauce (light soy sauce, grated garlic, grated ginger, a few drops dark sesame seed oil and some water). What for great meal!

    These were easy to make and tasty too. Suggest using wet hands to roll the chicken mixture aroung the lemongrass sticks. The lemongrass was mild in taste......so suggest if you like the lemongrass flavour to be stronger to use the lemongrass in the mixture and then use regular skewers to cook. I used the two large lemongrass to make the required 8 "lemongrass skewers''. Falvours were mild and even enjoyed by my fussy 8 year old. Photo also to be posted. Made for "Make my recipe tag"in the Aus/NZ Forum May 2012

    Your ingredients were not clear for the lemon grass stalks. You require 8 stalks to wrap the ingredients around but the ingredients only give you 4. The taste was magnificient! I placed mine in my smoker while I was smoking other meats. The smoky flavor really inhanced the taste.
