Barbecued Lemongrass Chicken Recipe

Ingredients :

    • 6 boneless chicken breasts
    • 2 tablespoons oil

Marinade :

    • 3 stalks lemongrass, tender inner part of bottom third only, finely minced
    • 3 cloves garlic, minced
    • 1 tablespoon fish sauce
    • 1 tablespoon sugar
    • 1 teaspoon ground turmeric
    • 1 teaspoon chicken stock powder
    • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 1 portion Sweet Chili Dip

Method :

    1. Make the Sweet Chili Dip.
    2. Blend all the Marinade ingredients in a food processor until smooth and rub it all over the chicken. Marinate at least 2 hours or overnight.
    3. Preheat a charcoal grill or oven broiler to medium heat. Grill the chicken until done, with grilled marks on both sides, about 10–15 minutes. Alternatively, brush a pan with a thin coat of oil and heat over medium heat until almost smoking, then sear the chicken, turning once, until light brown. Remove and arrange the chicken on a baking tray and bake in a preheated oven at 190°C (375°F) until done, about 5–7 minutes.
    4. Arrange the chicken breasts on a serving platter and serve with the Sweet Chili Dip on the side.
