Notes about this recipe

  • Eat Your Books

    Chicken marinates at least 4 hours.

    Chicken did not brown as well as in the picture when I cooked this. Flavors were good, but I feel there are much better recipes in this book.

    Like others have said, very easy and very good. I put it in the marinade overnight and it was very easy to finish it up after work on a weeknight. I followed her cooking times for the chicken and didn't have problems, but I used thigh meat- the timing as written would have ruined breast meat though (which I think is listed as an acceptable option).

    Flavors were good, but if you follow her directions chicken will be overcooked. Not in a hurry to make this again.

  • FJT on March 14, 2016

    Delicious and so easy to make; not least because I used lemongrass paste rather than chopping the real thing (lemongrass can be hard to find in the shops here).

    Very tasty, very simple.
