Lemongrass Fried Chicken

Enjoy these delicious crispy chicken drumsticks just like in Laos or Thailand

To get fantastic lemongrass fried chicken drumsticks, marinate them at least overnight in the fridge, 24 hours is even better. The taste will be intense using fresh lemongrass. In Asian grocery stores, you can also find frozen chopped lemongrass, if this is the one you use, it will take 4 tbsp. For those who wish to use dried lemongrass, you will need to ground it quite finely, otherwise it will have little fragrance. You can leave the skin of the drumsticks, it will also bring taste and become crispy. Regarding garlic, I did not use fresh garlic, because it would not withstand a ten minute frying, you need garlic powder.
Before frying, I carefully coat the pieces of chicken in cornstarch, it will protect the flesh during cooking and thus keep it soft and juicy. In addition, the cornstarch will become very crispy and appetizing while remaining thin and light. Enjoy your chicken drumsticks with sticky rice and vegetables. I added a Laotian-style dipping sauce for the rice and green beans for example. The chicken doesn't really need the extra sauce. Bon appétit.
