I had tasted different versions of Vietnamese chicken before. When I was a student in UK, my friend cooked a dish of the same name and I remembered it had lemongrass. Since then, I have come across many versions. Then I came across another version which was much tastier and I discovered it in a Vietnamese restaurant called the Vietnamese Kitchen (what else?). That was years ago when I was in Malaysia. Since living over here in the UK, I have recreated it and it is good. My children love it.
