Top-ranked recipe named "Spicy Lemongrass Tamarind Chicken"
Combine the Marinade ingredients in a large bowl and mix well. Place the chicken pieces in the Marinade and mix until well coated. Cover with a cloth and allow to marinate for at least 30 minutes. Overnight is even better.
Heat the oil in a wok or skillet over medium heat, stir-fry the garlic for 1 to 2 minutes until fragrant and golden brown. Add the chicken, chili and bell pepper, increase the heat to high and stir-fry until the chicken is browned, about 2 minutes. Reduce the heat to medium, add the chicken stock, tamarind juice and sugar, and bring the mixture to a boil. Simmer uncovered for about 3 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the chicken is tender and cooked. Remove from the heat.
Transfer to a serving platter, garnish with coriander leaves (cilantro) and serve with steamed rice.
