I'm not sure where I got the inspiration to make this dish from. But I love the flavours of ginger and lemongrass in this. All I wish is to have a clay pot and gas stove to cook this in!
I'm pleased to let you know that reducing in carbs for a few weeks has resulted in a stronger me. Don't get me wrong, I'm still eating carbs- just not every day and also, just realising how much carbs are there in natural occurring food anyway like fruit. It has also tested in my ability to think out of the box and cook with more protein!
Having chinese meals is actually not that difficult. The only thing that I need to not eat is rice. Other than that, it's meals-as-usual in our household. My hubby on the other hand, is excited as he started to see more dishes like lamb, pork, salmon and beef presented to him for dinner.
I think Chicken with Ginger and lemongrass has a thai or even vietnamese feel to it. Nevertheless, I hope you will enjoy this as much as we did.
