2 large boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 small egg white
1 carrot, finely grated
1 small red chili, deseeded and chopped
2 T. chopped fresh garlic or garlic chives
2 T. chopped fresh cilantro
1 T. canola oil
salt and pepper
4 long lemongrass stalks, each cut in half
1.) Roughly chop chicken and place in food processor with egg white. Process for a few minutes until the chicken turns into a smooth paste. Add carrots, chili, garlic or chives, and cilantro and process to mix well.
2.) Chill mixture in fridge for 15 minutes (to as long as a few hours)
3.) Using your hands, mold the chicken mixture around lemon grass stalks.
4.) Brush lemongrass skewers with canola oil and broil for 4-6 minutes, turning occasionally, or grill on a hot grill for the same amount of time.
Note: I used the broiler because of time restraints but they would taste and look better grilled. That's why I made my chicken into pita sandwiches with homemade tzatziki sauce (see photo below). Also, next time I would add some lemongrass to the chicken mixture.
