Lemongrass Tamari Chicken
May 30, 2014
There is something very enjoyable about choosing the items that you would like to your plate from the table.
Add as much, or as little, as you like of each ingredient to make up a plate of flavor just the way YOU like it. My boys love to make up their own dinner plate. I have found this to be a fun way to get the kids to eat a wide variety of foods.
A roast chicken is such a versatile dish. Flavored with your choice of ingredients it can be served:
Your imagination is really the limit.
The flavors in this dish are fresh and clean and well suited to be served with noodles and crisp fresh vegetables and herbs.
This recipe was inspired by an approaching Winter. The lemongrass in my herb garden is not at it’s best in Winter. I was keen to use up some of of the larger stalks before the plant becomes overwhelmed by the damp cool conditions. I cut the plant back hard in Winter. The other key ingredient in this recipe is Organic Tamari. It gives the roasted chicken a lovely depth of flavor. Tamari is a wheat free soy sauce, naturally brewed from whole organic soy beans. I find the flavor to be smoother and less salty than regular soy sauce. Tamari is one of the Pureharvest ingredients that I have discovered and am enjoying cooking with since we started working together.
We served our chicken with rice noodles and fresh vegetables and herbs and some of my home made sweet chilli sauce.
Organic Tamari and Rice Malt Syrup are available from good delis and wholefood stores and some Coles and Woolworths stores. If your local supermarket does not stock them, ask them to, or fill in the product request form. These stores now take product requests from customers.
If you can not find either you may substitute Tamari for Light Soy Sauce and Rice Malt Syrup for honey (but it will taste better if you make it to this recipe!)
Do you have a favorite meal that you like to set out on the table so that everyone can create their own plate?
