We were on holidays at Surfers Paradise in Queensland Australia. We were out at different restaurants every night. One night we tried Vietnamese. My husband ordered ‘Grilled Chicken with lemongrass & Chilli’ (Ga nuong xa ot). It was quite a surprise when I sampled his chicken, it was mouth-watering. When we got back home I did some research and attempted to make it. Although I didn't find the exact recipe this version is still yummy. I used chicken thigh fillets instead of breast fillets because the meat is juicer and less fibrous (the restaurant served their dish using thighs). They also used the marinade on Beef, Pork, Prawns, Scallops, Squid, Fish Fillets and Vegetables. To prepare the lemongrass, trim and discard the roots. Use a vegetable peeler to whittle the stalks into thin partial slices. I used half freshly whittled lemongrass and half grated lemon grass. I taste the recipe before I placed the meat in and it's so yummy that I would also use it as a dipping sauce.
