Vietnamese Spicy Lemongrass Chicken/越式香茅鸡




This Vietnamese Lemongrass is a mandatory order whenever we visit our favorite Vietnamese Restaurant here in NJ. We loved it so much that I decided to recreate the sauce at home. It turned out so good and it was a instant hit at home !

Note: The original recipe was created on 2/15/2011 and was liked and followed by many bloggers.

我们家附近有一家越南餐厅做的香茅鸡特别好吃,我一直很想要自己在家做一次,找了好些食谱都觉得跟我们喜欢的有点出入。今天趁着周末,我就自己研究了一番,做出比较满意的香茅酱。

今晚的晚饭就是香茅鸡啦!老公吃了两大盘呢!


注:原食谱创作于 2011年2月15日,受到许多网友的喜爱,非常谢谢大家的支持哦!







Ingredients for Spicy Lemongrass Chicken:
2 tbsp Spicy Lemongrass Paste
1-1.5 lb chicken pieces/chicken breast pieces(marinate with a pinch of black pepper powder and some salt)
1 tsp Meat Curry powder
1/2 onion, chopped
2 tsp Soy sauce/Fish Sauce
1/2 tsp Salt
1/2 tsp Sugar/Palm Sugar


香茅鸡的材料:
1-1.5磅的鸡肉(鸡胸/鸡腿都可以,切块用一点胡椒粉和盐腌20分钟。)
1 tsp 咖喱粉
1/2 只洋葱,切碎
2 tsp 酱油/鱼露
1/2 tsp 盐
1/2 tsp 糖





1. Heat up a cooking pan and cook the chicken pieces with a little oil, cover with lid if needed, until fat starts showing. 

2. When the fat released is visible, stir in the chopped/sliced onion and cook for another minute.

3. Add 1 tsp of Curry powder stir well, and add 2 tbsp of Spicy Lemongrass Paste, stir for another minute, add about 1/2 a cup of water, season with salt, soy sauce/fish sauce and sugar.

4. Bring it to boil turn to medium, when the liquid reduced to the thickness of your liking, its done!


1. 把鸡肉切块加入胡椒粉和盐腌十分钟备用。

2. 加热一口锅,等锅子够热了,下一点点油,把鸡肉倒入,翻匀。如果家里有香茅也可以拍两段一起炒。

3. 鸡肉变色之后加入切碎/丝的洋葱,翻炒至洋葱变软后加入1 tsp的咖喱粉翻匀,加入2大匙的香茅酱,翻炒均匀后,加入小半杯水,盐,酱油/鱼露,糖调味。再煮煮收汁,就好了。

  3. Echo,谢谢你的食谱!我一直都有在看你的食谱,谢谢你不吝于分享!我有一个小问题,我有试过用你说的方法去种香茅,可是我的香茅才放进水里几天,就会开始发霉(根部会变黑)。我也有天天换水。后来有几根,好像发霉没那么严重,就只是外层而已,我就把外层去掉,用potting soil种在花盆里,可是却活不起来 >_< 我没有green thumb,每次种什么都好像会死掉。是我没让它在水里待久的关系吗?根要长多长才可以种?用普通的potting soil就可以了吗?
    谢谢你!

  4. CW好,我想可能你买回来的香茅已经不新鲜了,或者你泡香茅的罐子有油迹,还是不干净。一般来说室温下,6-7天就看见根须就可以种了。

    还有,你泡很多根吗?一般2-3根一起泡就好了。

  5. 谢谢你的回复,Echo! 我的香茅是在Whole Foods 买的(想说,买比较好的,因为这里的亚洲市场卖的是干瘪瘪的,哈哈!)下次我再挑更新鲜一点的,罐子再洗干净一点试试看。我通常都只泡3根(主妇心态,怕泡不出根会浪费所以都只泡几根,哈哈!)
    谢谢你!
