Pan-Grilled Lemongrass Chicken
-Dasmariñas Village, Makati, Metro Manila, Philippines-
with the Boys
From my recent trip to Bangkok (see generally 10.320 Fried King Lobster with Garlic & Black Pepper), I came back with a few goodies to initiate a new age of exploration into Thai cuisine.
With such a wealth of ingredients, I had prepared to cook a triumphant Thai feast for the family, including the In-Laws. But then a conversation with W – about what, I already can’t recall – evolved into a spat that escalated into an argument that exploded into an all-out fight. Dinner was cancelled.
Later that night, the boys were hungry, so I used some of the ingredients to make a few snacks.
The chicken wasn’t that great. The marinade provided a hint of tang from lemongrass, but the other flavors seemed underdeveloped, confused.
