“Lemongrass paste may be used as a sub for fresh lemongrass. It can be purchased in the produce department of your grocer. Boneless chicken pieces can be used in place of the bone-in. The marinade itself is fantastic and can stand on it's own even without the dipping sauce. Recipe from foodnetwork. A tidbit of information...curry paste has no curry in it. It's just a reference to a particular type of Asian chile sauce.”

Directions

  1. Remove the grassy tops of the lemon grass, leaving stalks about 6 inches long, and cut off any hard root section. Using the blunt edge of a large knife or cleaver, bruise each stalk all over, then chop. Combine marinade ingredients in blender, process until smooth and pour into a nonreactive bowl. Add chicken, turning to coat all over. Cover and refrigerate at least 4 hours or overnight.
  2. Meanwhile, combine the sauce ingredients in a small saucepan and bring to a boil while stirring. Reduce heat and simmer 2 to 3 minutes or until thickened slightly, then remove from heat.
  3. Prepare grill or preheat broiler. Remove chicken from marinade. At this point I lightly season with salt. Grill or broil breasts and thighs until golden brown on all sides over high heat, starting chicken skinside down first. Then move chicken to a medium hot part of the grill or broiler until cooked through, 20 to 30 minutes total.
  4. Serve with Sweet and Spicy Sauce.
