Chicken in a Thai Ginger & Lemon Grass Sauce

I love surprises and especially ones that come beautifully wrapped. So naturally was really excited on receiving a wonderful gift hamper from Worldfoods .Thanks very much Rebecca Gabbai  sending this across.

The hamper was an exciting mix of various Asian sauces. Some dipping and some that could be used as stir fry sauces. Browsing through the package I discovered an assortment of:

  • Thai Ginger & Lemon Grass Sauce
  • Indonesian Sweet Tamarind Sauce
  • Chinese Ginger-Garlic –Chili dipping sauce
  • Malaysian Chili Coconut Marinade
  • Thai Sweet Chili with Kaffir Lime-Dipping & Stir fry sauce

What a delightful variety of flavors, I sure was spoilt for choice that day. I could well imagine using most of these in my kitchen as I do a lot of Asian cooking for the family and of course for the Cooking workshops that I conduct.

A quick look into my refrigerator revealed some Boneless chicken breasts, some gorgeous Thai red chilies for the added kick, tender broccoli stems(they go so well with chicken).So was pretty certain that I could whisk up something delish that evening.

And so came out this jar of Worldfoods Ginger & Lemon Grass Sauce ready to be stirred in with the rest of the ingredients.

Foodie friends may I present this easy and delicious recipe that puts an end to the week night suspense of what to cook? Go ahead and serve it with some fragrant jasmine rice or plain boiled rice and a crunchy Papaya salad.

You sure have a fantastic meal in less than 30 minutes.I cant wait to try out the other sauces.Perhaps the Indonesian Sweet Tamrind Marinade next week…mmm mmm mmmm.Happy Cooking and Bon Appetite!
