Garlic Ginger Chicken for Two

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Anacat

There are some great garlic chicken recipes on here, but most of them are written for a cook who has a lot of time and is cooking for more than just two people. This is what I came up with as something smaller and simpler to serve with a sweeter side. I served it with acorn squash cooked with brown sugar and peas. The meal ended up having a flavor reminiscent of North African food.

Made this as directed except I used fresh grated ginger. DH and I loved time I will use chicken thighs because he loves the dark meat. Thank you for a great recipe for two! Made for SPRING PAC 2010.
