Grilled-Vietnamese-Lemongrass-Chicken-5Looking for a chicken recipe that’s great for salads, sandwiches, summer rolls, or as a main course? Look no further! Jeanette Chen of Jeanette’s Healthy Living has created this marinade that is both rich and flavorful. For the best flavor, make sure to marinate the chicken for several of hours. To prevent sticking when grilling this chicken, drizzle oil on a piece of foil placed on a baking sheet and lay the chicken on top. Drizzle a little more oil on top of the chicken, and slide the whole piece of foil onto the grill. This make for a fast and easy cleanup. This is delicious served with fresh salad greens, mint, cilantro and Asian rice noodles, along with Vietnamese dipping sauce, and chopped peanuts.
