Thai Chicken with Ginger and Mushrooms - Gai King

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by PalatablePastime

Adapted from the "Original Thai Cookbook". Has all the typical Thai stir-fry flavors in it. You could use dried mushrooms if you wish, but be sure to soak them first.

Top Review by Robin W.

I followed the recipe to the letter using re-hydrated mushrooms and the result was quite good and well received by my guests. However having eaten this dish many times in Thailand I felt it lacked enough ginger in the taste. After all that should be the most memorable flavour of the dish.
