Stir-Fried Lemongrass Chicken + Weekly Menu

I’ve been in a bit of food rut here lately. I know, hard to believe with a food blog and all…but weekly menus have been hard. Normally, I have a laundry list of way too many recipes. Lately, nothing has enticed me so I resorted back to some of my favorite flavors.

Last night, Kristen and I made quite the menu. It was a ladies night in with food, wine, music, and comfy clothes. It was just what we needed in this wintery Michigan weather after a long week.

The salad we made had bold flavors: salami, pepperocini peppers, olives…

The potatoes we made had GOBS of apple cider vinegar in them.

The chicken was slathered in dijon mustard as its “glue” for the breading.

Dessert was a sweet & tart lemon flavor.

So many flavors. So much to enjoy. To say it was inspiring for dishes to make is probably an understatement.

The favorite flavor in this recipe: lemongrass.

A very fragrant and sweet lemony flavor that is used heavily in Thai cooking, lemongrass brings a light and fresh flare to this meal. A one-pot meal that comes together quickly is my kind of meal. The lemongrass really is the star in this one.

…and the cashews. I love that crunch!

  1. I’ve never used lemongrass; the chicken sounds really good!

    And you weekly menus sounds great, too.

  2. I love lemongrass too, not that I can find it pretty easily – love the citrus notes. Hooray for good food, great friends and comfy clothes!!

  3. Yum! I bookmarked this in last month’s Cooking Light – glad to hear it was just as good as it looks!

  4. This looks wonderful! I’ve never used lemongrass… I don’t even know what it looks like! I have most of the non-fresh ingredients for this on hand, though, so maybe I’ll have to try it!
