HOW TO MAKE LEMONGRASS CHICKEN

This spicy-lemongrass-marinated-chicken combination was so utterly simple and perfect. In addition to the lemongrass, the marinade is also packed with garlic, citrus, and chili peppers.

I poured half of the lemongrass marinade over some chicken thighs and put it away for a couple of hours, allowing all those flavors to come together.

When ready, all you have to do is transfer it all to the grill or a grill pan, brush some more marinade over it, and grill away. Several short minutes later, you’re going to feast on THIS:

FYI: I picked up a few bottles of Private Selection’s Indian-inspired Tandoori Marinade, too, and I’m really looking forward to sharing a recipe that I made with it in the very near future. Stay tuned.

ENJOY!

    I would use it on homemade cielito lindo, enchiladas, roasted chicken or even soup for my love for spice!!

  2. Would be delicious on jumbo shrimp, marinated and skewered with red, yellow and green peppers and pineapple chunks, all brushed with the marinade while grilling.

  3. Darcy Robertson

    Since I can’t have red meat anymore, it sounds good on chicken,pork and vegetables. I would put in rice and some potato dishes. This will spice up my boring recipes. Can’t wait to use. I’m so excited. Going to Ralphs today. Yea. Thank you for the new recipe. We will try for Father’s day.

  4. Melissa Carson

    I would use a combo of chicken and shrimp. Marinade the protein in the sauce and then cook them on skewers along with some colorful veggies. Nummmmmy

  5. I enjoy suggestions from others who’ve tried something new – like this marinade – so I’d make the dish you featured here to start! After tasting it with that, I’d probably try it with some shrimp or white fish – baked or grilled.
