I cannot claim this recipe as my own and instead I must admit that it is a specialty of the eldest of my two younger brothers, Tim. He whips it up in the blink of an eye, fires up the BBQ and before you know it the air is filled with the aroma of lemongrass and kaffir lime. And when in winter the rain drives you indoors then this is just as delicious pan fried as it is done on the BBQ.
Do not feel you have to serve this chicken as suggested below. You could do a number of things with it including shredding it into a salad or into a bowl of noodles and vegetables. You could also rub the marinade over a whole chicken before roasting it.
