      Lovely sauce, so fragrant! I whizzed it up in a blender to get the garlic and ginger in good. I had issues with the chicken though - the egg white just got stuck in the bottom of the pan into a thin omelette... maybe I had my pan too hot? It tasted good though, but mostly without the egg ;)

      This is nicely flavored and in spite of the long list of ingredients relatively easy to put together. Make sure that you have everything assembled and ready to go as it goes very quickly. Other than adjusting the recipe to serve 2, the only change I made was to slightly reduce the amount of white pepper. I think the full amount would have been too much for our taste. Even with 3/4 teaspoon it is plenty spicy.
