Baked Chicken with Lemongrass and Garlic
Dietitian of Department of Health said, "The tender chicken thighs are tasty. Remove the skin before eating to reduce fat intake. Baking in an oven is a more healthy way of cooking than pan-frying as less cooking oil is needed. Use vegetable oils such as corn oil, peanut oil, canola oil or olive oil. Avoid using coconut oil and palm oil which are high in saturated fat."
