Paleo Lemongrass 5 Spice Chicken

Good day lovelies!
It is grill and BBQ season and what better way to have fun in the sun, than with some scrumptious marinated chicken that will keep them coming back for more!

This is a great, easy, & flavorful recipe that does beautifully on the grill and can just as easily be baked in the oven.

Paleo Lemongrass 5 Spice Chicken


-6 Chicken breasts cleaned and halved lengthwise, then scored on each side.
-10 Cloves garlic pressed (yes, 10 cloves)
-2 Tbs Frozen or fresh lemongrass
-2 Tbs grated ginger
-1/4 C Grape seed oil
-1/2 tsp Toasted sesame oil
-3 Tbsp Fish sauce
-1/2-1 tsp Kosher salt
-1 tsp 5 Spice mix
-3 Tbsp Rice vinegar
-1 tsp Sweet chili sauce
-1 Lime zested
-1/2 Fresh squeezed lime juice


-Lay prepared chicken in a flat dish.
-In a bowl mix all the marinade ingredients, then pour over chicken and rub into it. Be sure both sides are well covered, wrap and refrigerate overnight.
-Oil then heat your grill to high and cook the chicken breasts 8-10 mins. each side, or a few minutes longer depending on the heat of your grill and thickness of your chicken breasts. Be sure that the juices run clear when you cut into the chicken. All ow the chicken to rest for a few minutes before slicing them to serve over salad as they will lose all their juices and become dry. 

This is the marinating chicken. Then you simply grill it, on each side until cooked. It takes about 10-15 mins, once you take it off the grill let it sit for a few minutes before cutting into it. Make sure the juices run clear, no blood in the juices that come out.
I served it on a salad mix with fresh blueberries and a blueberry hill salad dressing. That recipe will follow in another post.
For now, enjoy & God bless!
