Lemon grass chicken comes from the exotic land of Vietnam. It is simple to make and tasty to eat. Since it hardly uses 3 tbsp of oil to cook this chicken so this is a healthy dish. This doesn’t mean that the chicken compromise on taste and aroma. This is easy to make and ingredients are not difficult to find. This chicken does have sugar in its ingredients so gives a slight sweet taste but not enough to make it very sweet. A Vietnamese friend told me that this is his favorite chicken and he loves to eat nearly daily.
