Ginger Chicken

Ginger Chicken created by teresas

This isn't usually the ginger chicken that you get in Chinese restaurants. It is a simple and tasty recipe one of my Chinese friends likes to make. It has a good flavour and isn't too over powering. The amounts are an estimation because I have never measured it out. I usually use the liquid from the jar of the ginger not the vinegar. I usually have it with fried rice and a salad. Most of the time for this recipe is the marinating time.

    Mixed reviews in my household...hubby loved it...I thought it was way too salty...I did let my chicken marinade over night so it absorbed a lot of the soy sauce...I could only take two bites...the first one was way too salty so I tried it again just in case...hubby ate his all up...I served it with some leftover rice and recipe #347408 made for Spring PAC 2013 =)

    I put the sesame oil in the marinade (it's not a good cooking oil) and I used a garlic clove instead of the garlic powder. I made it in a non-stick pan and skipped the vegetable oil, I skipped the sesame seeds, and I served it over jasmine rice. This was really very tasty. The pickled ginger was just strong enough without being overpowering. I thought it could use a touch more sweetness; next time I might add a teaspoon or two of honey to the marinade. Made for Pick-A-Chef Fall 2009.
