Refreshing Ginger Chicken With Spinach & Mushrooms

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by rpgaymer

This Thai-inspired dish features two of my favorite ingredients: fish sauce and ginger. If you are salt "intolerant," then decrease the amount of each sauce ingredient to two tablespoons instead of three. I'm not a fan of saltiness myself, but I tend to like salty Thai food (like Thai Basil Chicken, which this dish resembles).

"Refreshing" is a very good word for this dish. Made as directed. Mine ended up with a lot of liquid that I was tempted to thicken with cornstarch but I resisted the temptation. The liquid was fine as is on a bed of rice. I could eat this everyday! Thanks, rpgaymer! Made for Please Review My Recipe tag game.
