Lemongrass chicken

Have few stalks of lemongrass at home, so I am cooking fried lemongrass chicken dish for lunch.  Very simple to prepare, just marinate for about an hour or so, and you will have tasty lemongrass chicken.  You can either grill, fried or deep fried this dish. 

Fried Lemongrass Chicken

Chicken meats, cut into smaller parts  (you can used drumsticks or chicken wings instead)
2 stalks of lemongrass, the white part only (chopped and pounded finely)

Marinade: 2 tbsp light soy sauce, 1/2 tbsp dark soy sauce, 1 tbsp sugar, 1/2 tbsp Shaoxing wine

1.  Wash and pat dry chicken meat.  Add marinade together with pounded lemongrass into chicken.  Mix well.  Marinate for at least 2 hours or overnight in fridge.
2. Take out from fridge and toss away the marinade and lemongrass. 
3. Heat up oil in wok or pan in medium heat.  Toss chicken meats one by one once the oil is heated up.  Cover with lid for about 2 minutes to avoid splatter and speed up the cooking process.  Cook for 5 minutes on one side and turn to the other side and let it fried for another 5 minutes.
4. Drain and serve
