Sesame Honey Lemongrasss (Ginger) Chicken

Last night I decided to make something a bit spicy and sweet.  This simple recipe for a honey sesame ginger chicken was the perfect recipe for what I was craving.  However, right now, ginger is selling at about $23 per Kilo.  Looked as I might for a small ginger stump, I was unable to find one that would just give that grated fresh ginger flavour.  I decided substituting ginger for lemongrass and using a bit of ginger powder might even improve this old recipe.

For my lemongrass, sesame, ginger, honey chicken recipe the ingredients are:

  • 500 grams of chicken thigh, cut into strips
  • Finely diced lemongrass
  • 1 Tablespoon of honey
  • 2 Tablespoons of roasted sesame
  • 2 Tablespoons of soy sauce
  • Sesame oil for stir frying

Marinade the chicken thigh in lemongrass, honey, soy sauce and roasted sesame.  Then stir fry all the ingredients.  After 15-20 minutes, ready to eat.

Note: I added dried red chilis.  This made the recipe spicier and hotter than I imagined.  I will not be adding chilis again.
