Chicken with Lemongrass and Coconut Milk


This is a new recipe that I tried out yesterday. It requires deep-frying of chicken pieces first, and then cook them in spices and coconut milk. It may be a cholesterol-laden dish, but it's flavorful and extremely delicious. I guess the occasional indulgence in such dishes won't do any harm. ;-)

Yummylicious! I agree - as long as we practice a healthy lifestyle, regular exercises and health check-up, cholesterol laden food is an adventure that we should try out once in a while.
