Wash chicken and soak in water with 4tbs vinegar in it for fifteen minutes. Rinse and wash then apply deep cuts to it.

Grind peppercorns, button chilies, coriander and green garlic in a mortar and pestle. Then mix together the rest of the ingredients and marinate the chicken, stuff in the marination in the deep cuts and the remaining in the cavity. Let it marinate for at least 2 hours or overnight for best results.

**Also to avoid the hard lemon grass irritating you while eating the tender juicy chicken, you can tie them in a cheesecloth and place it inside the cavity of the chicken**
