Vermicelli with Chicken Breast & Lemon Grass

Vermicelli Chicken Breast, Lemon Grass Nothing is more satisfying to me as a gardener than being able to pick fresh food from the garden to cooking it, and then to enjoy it with the family.
My favorite noodle is the transparent vermicelli. I can eat it anyway and any day. In a soup, like the Vermicelli Noodle Soup with Chicken Liver, or dry in a Seafood Salad, and stir fried like Meatless Mieng Xao. And today, yet another Vermicelli dish stir-fried with boneless skinless chicken breast.

The secret is in the sauce, if you get your sauce right that is half the battle. The other half of the battle is getting your vermicelli to be tasteful and not bland.

Lemon Grass Bush Lemon Grass Harvested Ingredients: 12 grape tomatoes, boneless and skinless chicken breast cut into 2 inch chunks, scallions cut diagonally, vermicelli / transparent kind noodles, and if you want color add 1, or 2 tablespoons of oyster sauce, 2 table spoons of Olive Oil, 2 tablespoons of lemon juice.

Preparation: Soak the noodles in warm water until tender. Heat your favorite pan with the olive oil, drop in your chopped diagonal scallions, cook on medium high until lightly tan. Drop in your chicken breast chunks and cook until almost done. Drop in your grape tomatoes and smash them. Drop in your noodles. Season with salt and pepper, now is the time to add oyster sauce if you want, then sprinkle on the lemon juice and cover the pan with a lid. Turn the heat to low and cook for another 10- 15 minutes, stir and mix constantly to make sure the noodles are mixed well. Bon Appetit

And if you would like to grow your own lemon grass, below are the five simple steps.
1) Buy a fresh bunch of Lemon Grass from the stores. They are freshest if they have the pinkish look like the picture shown here.
2) Put the Lemon Grass bunch in a glass with about an inch of water. Remember to change and refill the water every other day or as needed.
3) Keep the Lemon Grass in a place where the temperature is not harsh. Not too cold and not too hot. I just keep it by my kitchen window, so that I can remember to change the water.
4) Once you see the roots start growing, take it outside and plant the roots downward. Cover the Lemon Grass to the last ring. Do not cover the Lemon Grass too high, as it will be very difficult to break them off when you want them.
5) Once the roots takes, Lemon Grass grows easily, and requires little care. It breaks off at the last ring effortlessly, if you planted them correctly.
