Thai Style Butter Lemongrass Chicken - 泰式香茅牛油鸡

This is my first post of 2015.  Here I would like to wish every blogger and friend a very Happy New Year, Hopefully this year there would be more peace in the world and less disasters, both natural and man made.

This recipe has been with me for quite sometime.  Until today i have a chance to give it a try. Out of my expectation it turned out better than I assumed it would be. It tastes so good and the chicken is tender.  However, I thought that the Tom Yum paste overpowered the lemon grass. Perhaps I will add more lemon grass in my next attempt.

Gentle reminder, you need to cook more rice .lol
