Lemongrass chicken with mangetout

The good thing about a stir fry is after you’ve chopped and sliced all the ingredients, the rest is easy peasy. This recipe requires minimal effort, you can easily whip it up in no time – making it a great midweek meal.

Serves 3-4

What you’ll need: 

3 tbsp. fish sauce

3 cloves garlic, chopped

1.5 tbsp. curry powder

pinch of salt

2 tbsp. plus 1.5 tsp. brown sugar

500g chicken thigh fillets, cut into 2cm pieces

2 tbsp. water

3 tbsp. cooking oil

3 fresh lemongrass stalks, finely chopped

Let’s kook:

1) In a bowl, mix together the fish sauce, garlic, curry powder, salt and 1.5 tsp. of the sugar. Add the chicken and leave to marinate.


2) In a small saucepan, place the 2 tbsp. of sugar with 2 tbsp. of water and simmer over medium heat, stirring until the sugar is dissolved and turns caramel in colour. Remove from the heat and set aside.


3) Heat the oil in a frypan, add the lemongrass and fry for about 3-5 mins until fragrant.


4) Add the shallots.
