Admit it. Assuming the same cooking technique, chicken breast can never turn out as moist or as juicy as chicken wings or drumsticks and thigh meat. Of course, I do understand what does it means when chicken breast turns out too dry.
Earlier, I had bookmarked Little Inbox's Lemongrass and Turmeric Chicken as the idea of lemongrass and turmeric in the dish was appealing; and it seems to be an easy dish to put together.
Gave the recipe a slight tweak by adding a little tomatoes (as I had part of a tomato left, after using it in another dish). Indeed, I was not wrong. I enjoyed the flavor combination, especially how the lemongrass imparts citrus notes.
As this dish has not much gravy, it was a good match and pairing with wholesome congee made using barley and quinoa, and sweet potatoes .
Some steamed broccoli, lemongrass chicken, and barley-quinoa congee make a comfy homey meal for me.
