This Cambodian Lemon Grass Chicken Drumstick will not disappoint in flavor. It is spicy and gently hot from the Lemon Grass that did not overshadow the gentle taste of the coconut milk. Just like any Asian cuisine, this meal is super delicious for get together and for dinner time. Try it.

Transport yourself to Cambodia with this Cambodian Dish. It has coconut milk, lemon grass and chicken drumsticks. You can switch the drumsticks into chicken wings or chicken breasts. But for me, I want me some chicken drumsticks, Cambodian style.

I have never been to Cambodia but it has been one of the places that I want to go next to Europe. I am specially enamored by their culture and their faith . I am amazed how adamant they are  about reincarnation and the commitment they have on practicing  Zen . Then, the  Buddhas. I digress. I guess I was influenced by too much watching The Tomb Raider. Look at Angie’s body, do you think  Cambodian soil, water or cuisine could have caused that?

  1. Hi Shobee! i tried this recipe but using chicken thighs since I don’t have drumsticks in my fridge.. Just wanna know why your pictures looked like the chicken were fried and mine were pale☹️.. I am wondering maybe because yours was with paprika? or maybe because of the lighting? whatever the reason is, the chicken came out delicious i also tried your pandesal and hubby said it tasted good! thumbs up Thanks for sharing

    1. Hi! I did not add paprika in this but the color should be due to the ginger. I cannot remember what time I took the picture in this,but it could be due to the natural light when I took the picture.
