Easy and Versatile Lemongrass Chicken Recipe

This delicious lemongrass chicken recipe takes a little longer, but it’s worth the time.

 

 

We use pastured-raised chicken for its lean protein content, as well as the vitamin A (when the skin is left on) and higher levels of omega-3 fatty acids.

 

Adding a lemongrass-based marinade gives this chicken little Asian twist — a little spice, a little sweet.
