Instructions

  1. Preheat oven and marinate chicken

    • Preheat the oven to 220°C.
    • Blend lemongrass, coriander root, garlic, black peppercorn, kaffir lime, 2 tbsp oyster sauce, 2 tbsp soy sauce, 1 tbsp vegetable oil, 2 tbsp milk and 1 tbsp palm sugar. Set aside.
    • Lightly score the skin of the chicken, then marinate with the lemongrass paste for at least 1 hour or, for best results, overnight.

    | Scoring the meat makes it easier for the chicken to absorb the marinade. Same goes for duck, beef and other meats!
