  2. Steam chicken

    • Once the chicken is done marinating, lay out 2 lemongrass stalks onto a heatproof dish, then place the whole chicken on top.
    • Steam in the oven on medium steam setting for 45 minutes, otherwise, steam in a pot on high heat filled with water, with the dish on a rack.
    • When cooked, remove from heat and transfer to a serving plate.


  3. Make sauce

    • Pour liquid from the bottom of the heatproof dish into a saucepan.
    • Season to taste with salt, pepper and soy sauce if needed.
    • Add in ½ tsp cornstarch, mixed with 1 tbsp water.
    • Bring to a simmer on medium-low heat. Keep stirring until it turns into a nice glaze.

    | Adding cornstarch and water to the sauce will thicken it into a gravy



Garnish and Serve!

Drizzle the glaze over the chicken and garnish with 1 finely sliced large red chili, 1 sprig coriander and 4 lime wedges.

Garnish and Serve!
