Bergy, this was yummy! My family just ate it up and a friend came over and he ate too! I did use thigh meat instead of breast, just cause that's what I happened to have. Excellent dinner. Thanks!

Pressed for time, I prepared this in 3 minutes, and cooking time wasn't relevant. I dredged the chicken strips in cornflour, set it on low to cook, turned the strips once and then added the marinade. I used cornflour (by accident) because I read the ingredients list really quickly and then ran into the kitchen to make it. My husband, starved, devoured this. When I mentioned that I didn't use fresh ginger, he interuppted saying he liked it better this way...I didn't finish my sentence by adding I had substituted powdered ginger and dry red wine for dry sherry. Bergy this is a very easy, delicious recipe. Thanks.
