Honey Lemongrass Baked Chicken
Honey Lemongrass Baked Chicken – honey & lemongrass marinated chicken baked to golden perfection. So easy and yummy for the entire family.
Coming from Southeast Asia, I love everything made with lemongrass. Lemongrass is a wonderful aromatics that perfumes all simple dishes into something exotic. Think Malaysian Chicken Satay, Thai Tom Yum Soup, Vietnamese Lemongrass Chicken, these dishes wouldn’t be so exotic or flavorful without the fragrance of lemongrass in the concoction. I just love lemongrass, even a simple lemongrass honey drink transports me back to tropical Southeast Asia!
My good friend successful grows some lemongrass in her garden recently, and knowing that I love lemongrass, she gave me a big lunch. I had some chicken drumsticks in my freezer that day so I decided to make these easy and absolutely delicious honey lemongrass baked chicken. Another reason for this honey lemongrass baked chicken recipe is that my picky eater son has recently started to eat chicken drumsticks, and he likes to eat the drumsticks like a carnivore, taking a big bite of the meaty part with a funny expression. I love the way he acts out when he bites into the juicy drumsticks.
This recipe is very easy to make; it’s a slight variation from my very popular ginger garlic baked chicken. In this case, the ginger is replaced with lemongrass, but you get a completely different flavor profile because of the lemongrass.
If you are not familiar with lemongrass, this is how they look, after the top part is being cut off. Nowadays, lemongrass is no longer hard to find, you can buy them from regular supermarkets or food stores now. The next time you go shopping, buy some and introduce a new ingredient into your daily cooking repertoire, and try this amazing honey lemongrass baked chicken that is a wonderful dish for weeknight or weekend dinners. Enjoy!
