Ga xao xa ot (stir fry chicken with lemongrass and chilli)

Without a doubt, Ga xao xa ot is one my favourites. The combination of lemongrass, garlic and chilli is just amazing. The alluring aroma that waffles through the house when cooking this dish is irresistible. Not only does it taste amazing, but also quick and simple to prepare.


1 cup chicken thigh fillet
1/2 tbsp fish sauce
1/2 tsp pepper

2 cloves garlic roughly chopped
1 tbsp Lemongrass (finely minced)
1/2 Onion (roughly sliced)
1 large chilli (sliced)
1/4 tsp turmeric
1/2 tsp chilli powder (optional)
1 tbsp Sugar
1/2 tbsp fish sauce


1. Cut chicken thigh fillet into bit size pieces and season with fish sauce and pepper. Set aside
2. Have all the other ingredients prepared and ready to go.
3. Have a non stick pan on medium-high heat and wait until it's hot. Add a tbsp of oil to pan and sear the chicken on both sides.
4. Add the lemongrass, garlic and saute until fragrant. Then the chilli powder, turmeric powder and toss quickly all together.
5. Followed by the onion, chilli, and quickly toss all ingredients together.
6. Then add the sugar and fish sauce, toss quickly to coat the chicken evenly. Reduce the sauce until it becomes a sticky glaze, remove from heat.
7. Enjoy with some Vietnamese herbs, lettuce and steaming hot rice


  1. Amazing recipe! It looks very elegant and I think this recipe is suited for house party. I wish my wife could cook this. Anyway, thank you for sharing!

  2. Cooking can be easy or complicated. However, there is no doubt that cooking is an interesting thing. There are two types of cooking: home cooking and restaurant cooking. As we all know, there are some differences between these two kinds of cooking. Ann
