Lemongrass Curry Chicken

Lemongrass Curry Chicken

One of our favorite dishes in Vietnamese restaurants is Lemongrass Chicken. Most Lemongrass Chicken recipes have added sugar and a caramelization process, but I wanted a lower calorie dish with less sugar and tons of flavor. With some re-working of traditional ingredients for this dish, I adapted this recipe to be just as satisfying as it was intended to be. My son downed a bowl and asked for more, which in my house is a true sign of success. Serve with short grain brown rice.
