Stir-fried Chicken with Lemongrass


Stir-fried Chicken with Lemongrass

It's a brand new (mid)week and IHCC's new theme is Heaven Scent.


Diana Henry uses a lot of floral ingredients in her dishes, such as rose water, rose petals, edible flowers, lavender, etc. It's almost impossible to find and I'm clueless where to get them. Joyce from Kitchen Flavors gave me a location to buy rose water but I ran out of time to buy because... (shhhhh... I'm going to a family beach vacation this weekend...) ;) 

So, I decided to look into savory scent, such as lemongrass (my favorite!), garlic, ginger, chilies. Thanks Zosia from Are You Cooking? for this piece of valuable info! :)

So, here I present to you my heaven-s(c)ent Stir-fried Chicken with Lemongrass. :)

Recipe adapted from here.

Ingredients:
(Serves 2)

Olive oil
2 cloves garlic, lightly smashed
4cm piece ginger, cut into big slices
2 stalks lemongrass, finely chopped 
400g chicken breasts, cut into slices
1 green pepper, deseeded and cut into slices
10 button mushrooms (canned), drained and quartered
5 sweet cherry tomatoes
Some water
Salt to taste

How to: 

1. Heat up some olive oil in a frying pan and lightly stir-fry garlic, ginger and lemongrass until fragrant.

2. Add chicken breast slices and stir-fry until they turn white. Add green pepper, button mushrooms and some water. Cook for 3-4 minutes until softened.

3. Add cherry tomatoes and more water if needed. Season with salt to taste. Give everything a good stir and off the heat.

4. Serve with fragrant white rice.

Lovely lemongrass, garlic, and ginger.

See those lemongrass bits?

I'm going crazy munching on lemongrass! :D



I'm linking this post with I Heart Cooking Clubs (IHCC) for this week's theme, Heaven Scent.

  1. Hi Joyce,
    Yummy! Salivating ! I've used lemongrass in cooking curry, tom yam or grill with meat but haven't tried in stir-fry. Thanks for sharing ^-^!

  3. Lemongrass is one of my favorite ingredients--it's so aromatic and perfect for the theme--especially with the garlic and ginger. Have a great beach break this weekend! ;-)

  4. Hi Joyce,
    Hope you had a wonderful beach day!
    This dish looks delicious! I could eat two plates of rice with just this one dish alone! I can just imagine how fragrant this dish is! Hope you can find the rosewater! I've made DH's ice cream using rosewater :)
