Vietnamese Lemongrass Chicken

Vietnamese Lemongrass Chicken

I’ve been trying lemongrass chicken mishmash recipes from here and there and I made one version of it today for dinner. Here’s the recipe:

2 boneless chicken thighs,cubed
2 tbsp fish sauce
1 1/2 tsp brown sugar
1 tsp light soy sauce
2 tbsp turmeric powder
1/2 cup lemongrass pounded finely
3 chilli padi (remove seeds if you can’t take spicy food)
1 cup of water


  1. Marinate the chicken with the fish sauce, turmeric powder, brown sugar, light soy sauce, chilli and half of the lemongrass for about 20 minutes.
  2. Heat up some oil and fry the remaining lemongrass till fragrant.
  3. Add in chicken pieces and turn only after a minute.
  4. Add in the cup of water, lower heat, and cover pan with lid. Allow chicken to simmer for 15 minutes, or until sauce thickens.
  5. Once the sauce has thickened, it is time to remove from heat and serve!
