Elmotoo, I'm excited to be the first to review this recipe! I used boneless skinless chicken thighs for the chicken. At first I was concerned that it would be lacking in flavor...but I couldn't have been more wrong. The chicken was so moist, and flavorful...just plain delicious! Best of all it was simple and quick to make. My ginger grater is still packed, so I used a potato peeler to peel thin strips of ginger which I then minced. I was a smidgen over on the ginger, but not by enough to alter the recipe. The only drawback I found, was there were no leftovers. I will definitely be making this dish again in the future. Thank you for sharing this tasty recipe. Made and reviewed for the 82nd AUS/NZ Recipe Swap. (Note should there be no stars in this review it was rated ***** I would have given more if I could.)
