Grilled Lemongrass Chicken

New recipe to try...

6 large stalks lemongrass
4 teaspoons Asian fish sauce (nam pla)
4 teaspoons soy sauce
4 teaspoons sugar
4 teaspoons minced garlic
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1/4 cup vegetable oil
4 whole boneless, skinless chicken breasts (about 4 pounds), split

1. Trim lemongrass to 5 inches from base; remove and discard bad outer leaves; cut remaining lemongrass into 1/2-inch lengths. In a food processor, process lemongrass to a hairlike texture. Place in a bowl; add remaining ingredients except chicken.

2. Remove tenderloins (small piece of meat attached to each breast) from chicken. Pound breasts to 1/8 inch thick; add, with tenderloins, to marinade, turning to coat. Marinate, refrigerated, 30 minutes to 8 hours.

3. Brush a grill or grill pan with oil; heat until medium hot. Grill chicken until cooked through and juices run clear when pierced, 3 to 4 minutes on each side. Serve.
