In a mixing bowl combine fish sauce and sugar, and mix until sugar has dissolved. Add half of the lemon grass, half of the garlic, half of the chilli and all of the chicken. Coat the chicken then marinate it covered and refrigerated for 1 hour or overnight for a better result.
Bring a large saucepan or wok to medium heat, add oil and remaining lemon grass, garlic and chilli, and fry until fragrant and slightly brown.
Turn heat to high then add the chicken, sealing all sides until browned, around 2 minutes on each side.
Now add coconut juice and onions, and cover with a lid, then cook on medium heat for 5 minutes or until sauce has reduced by half.
Transfer to a bowl, garnish with coriander and eat with jasmine rice.
