    Cookgirl's Note:

    From the cookbook My Berlin Kitchen: A Love Story by Luisa Weiss by way of Mark Bittman...Serve over basmati rice or couscous. To tone down the spiciness use less fresh ginger and/or use less jalapeno (substitute with a little bit of green jalapeno sauce-Tabasco brand for example).

      This wonderful recipe is from one of my favorite new cookbooks and this is a great recipe that I have made several times and enjoyed. I like to cut split chicken breasts in half and use them instead of drumsticks, but drumsticks are delicious, too. Spicey, but not too spicey, easy to make, great with steamed brown rice pilaf and green salad with a nice balsamic dressing.
