Lemon Grass Chicken


This is a super easy dish that I prepared for dinner recently.  There's practiclly no oil in this chicken dish except for the fat from the chicken leg which is very minimal.  If you prefer a light, less oil meat dish, try this!











This is very aromatic and you can serve it with white rice or bread  ............... Enjoy!

Ingredients
  • 3 chicken legs about 600 gm, skin removed, deboned and cut into 4 pieces each
  • 12 stalks lemon grass/serai
  • 5 pips garlic
  • 12 shallots
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1.1/2  Tbsp brown sugar
  • 1.1/2  Tbsp fish sauce
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2  tsp dark soya sauce
Preparation
  1. Smash up 8 stalks of  lemon grass and slice up the remaining 4 stalks thinly, mix them into the chicken pieces.
  2. I used a garlic press to press out the shallots and garlic and mix these into the chicken as well.
  3. Add in the brown sugar, fish sauce and salt.  Mix well. (Best to marinate this overnight, keep refrigerated).
  4. Put the chicken pieces into a wok, add in the dark soya sauce, water, cook under medium to low heat.
  5. When the sauce is semi-dry, discard the crushed lemon grass and pan-fry the chicken till dry.
  6. Test for taste, dish up.
  7. Serve

Herbal Jelly ~ Gui Ling Gao

H erbal Jelly ~ Gui Ling Ga o literally translated means 'Tortoise Jelly' is one of my family's favourite desserts.  It's much more economical to prepare this at home for you'll need to fork out between Rm 9 to Rm 11 for a bowl of this cooling dessert in any of those herbal tea outlets.  This soothing jelly, served chilled, is supposed to be able to help reduce our body heat, helps to get rid of toxins and is believed to be good for the skin thus culminating a healthier complexion.
