I scaled this back for 4 serves but 3 of us ate up the lot - I had 6 boneless skinless thigh fillets and after trimming fat had about 500 grams of flesh and the only change I made was towards the end I added a 1/3 cup of a light home made chicken stock before I added the cornflour mix as I wanted more sauce but the fact that the DM was asking for seconds (the DS and her ate up the 4th serve - I was chokos on what I had and thoroughly enjoyed), what I really enjoyed is that I think the ginger and garlic took away a lot of the saltiness from the soy sauces (I usually find most soy sauce recipes too salty for me but the DM, a salt fiend loved the dish so satisfying us both though I did use a low sodium soy for the light soy). I served with steamed baby bok choy and carrots and Chef floWer's recipe #221217, thank you David04 for a great recipe.
