In a hot wok heat the oil. Add the lemongrass and roasted chillies and cook until just fragrant. Add the chicken meat.
Add the sugar and rice wine (or sake) and cook until the liquid is absorbed. Then add the fish sauce and lime juice. Stir until the chicken is cooked and the liquid absorbed.
Remove from the heat, toss with Thai basil and coriander.
For the chicken skin skewers, preheat a heavy-based baking tray over the hob.
In a wok, heat the chillies and rice for 1-2 minutes then transfer to a pestle and mortar and pound into a paste.
Rub the chicken skin with the chilli paste.
Cook the chicken skin on the tray for about 4-5 minutes, or until crisp.
Thread the chicken skins onto the skewers. Season with the sea salt and white pepper.
Serve the chicken skin skewers with the lemongrass and chicken in a dish garnished with the sliced vegetables, Thai basil and coriander.
