Put the lightly fried chicken and 400ml of coconut water, 500ml of coconut water, 1 teaspoon of salt, 1 teaspoon of seasoning, and the lightly sautéed lemongrass part. Cover and let cook on medium heat for 20 minutes. 

When the chicken is tender, add 300ml of coconut milk to the pot to retain the fatty aroma of the broth. Next, put the pre-fried potatoes in the pot. Cook for another 5 minutes until the potatoes are soft.
