Baked Lemongrass and Chilli Chicken

10 min / 30 min

Serves 6


  • 6-8 single boneless chicken breasts
  • 3 tsp finely grated lemongrass
  • ½ cup sweet chilli sauce
  • ¼ cup water
  • 2 tbsp fish sauce
  • finely grated zest of 2 limes or 2 kaffir lime leaves finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp lime juice
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed


  1. Preheat oven to 200°C.
  2. Place chicken breasts in a shallow baking dish.
  3. Combine all other ingredients and pour over the chicken.
  4. Bake until the chicken is cooked through and golden (about 30 minutes).

To check whether it is done, insert a skewer into the thickest part. If the juices run clear, it is cooked. If they are pink, return them to the oven and cook a little longer before testing again.

Serve with jasmine rice and a green salad or vegetables.
