Lemongrass Chicken

Fresh zest pops from the tender chicken as this easy to follow recipe adds yet another delicious meal to your rotation. Lemon grass and lime juice make for a delightful marinade that embeds their flavor profiles into the chicken. I absolutely love to pan sear a well seasoned meat to give the kitchen that home cooking atmosphere. Watching the steam escape the pan as the meat begins to braise fills me satisfaction knowing something good is about to get platted up. Garlic notes will dance harmoniously in the air on the way to the table and on your taste buds once you take your first mouth watering bite. This is a beginner friendly recipe that is awesome for teaching those growing teenagers how to cook a good meal and is also a great prep meal for the week.

I love to partner this chicken with jasmine rice (or your favorite), fresh cut salad (with farm fresh tomatoes) and an egg (or two). The egg yolk mixed with the rice creates a balanced plate of textures and flavors and is pleasing to look at while you work your way through the meal.
