Monday : Chicken with lime caramel

Andrea requested Southeast Asian for her birthday dinner, so that's what I did.

After browning some skinned chicken leg quarters in butter I did the usual caramel + fish sauce + lime sauce and then braised the chicken in that along with some chunks of lemon grass. Just before serving I strained the sauce and added a bit of fresh lime.

We ate this with sticky rice.

As a side I steamed some green beans and then quickly stir fried them with chili-bean sauce, soy sauce, and black vinegar. The beans were good but didn't really match with the chicken in terms of flavors.
