This was quick and easy, but I really didn't like the combination of flavors- too much competition for a star flavor, so nothing shone.

This was a nice, quick, dinner recipe. I used lemongrass paste (approx 2 tsp), and one chicken stock gel pot mixed with some boiling water. Served with rice it was very tasty, will make again.
