  • Combine red chile peppers, garlic, lemongrass, olive oil, fish sauce, sesame oil, sugar, and sea salt in a food processor. Blend until finely chopped and combined. Pour marinade into the freezer bag , making sure chicken is well coated. Marinate in the refrigerator for at least 3 hours, or up to overnight.

  • Remove chicken from the refrigerator 30 minutes before cooking to allow to come to room temperature.

  • Heat a large cast iron or nonstick pan over medium-high heat. Cook chicken in batches until golden and caramelized on the outside and no longer pink in the centers, 7 to 10 minutes. Transfer chicken to a cutting board and cut into thick slices using a sharp knife.

  • Place sugar in a medium bowl. Add lemon juice and stir to dissolve. Stir in water and fish sauce, followed by garlic and chile pepper. Allow flavors to settle, 5 to 10 minutes. Taste and adjust for seasoning; add more lemon juice or sugar as needed.

  • Meanwhile, place noodles in a large bowl and cover with hot water. Set aside until noodles are softened, about 15 minutes.

  • Place cooked noodles into serving bowls. Top with chicken, lettuce, cucumber, carrot, cilantro, mint, and sauce.

Cook's Notes:

Cook noodles according to individual package instructions.

I thought this was really tasty. I used chicken tenderloins, which I marinated for about 6 hours. I didn't find red chile peppers so I used green. Otherwise no changes. Read More

I love lemongrass chicken and this is a very close to a restaurant recipe. I did have to change a couple things. For the chicken- I used a different recipe also found on All Reciepes (Vietnamese Grilled Lemongrass Chicken) For the sauce- I didn't have any red chilies and instead used a little chili garlic sauce. For the salad- I only had pho noodles and it worked fine. All in all, this is a light, aromatic, and refreshing meal. Would recommend and will look forward to enjoying it this summer. Read More
