Roasted Lemongrass Chicken

Roasted Lemongrass Chicken



  1. In food processor, combine lemongrass, shallot, garlic, sugar, red pepper flakes, salt, ginger, vegetable oil, Thai fish sauce and soy sauce. Process well, about 2 minutes. Place chicken in zipper-top plastic bag and pour marinade over, making sure it is well-coated.
  2. Refrigerate chicken for at least 8 hours or overnight.
  3. Heat oven to 350 degrees F.
  4. Remove chicken from bag, reserving marinade. Place chicken in roasting pan and place in oven. Roast for about 1 hour 30 minutes, basting two or three times with reserved marinade, until chicken is golden brown. Chicken is done when thermometer inserted into thickest part of the thigh registers 180 degrees F.
  5. Let chicken rest for 10 minutes before serving.
