Ginger Chicken

Ok. If you have a little bit of time, you can prepare this very typical Chinese style dish.

You will need -

  • Chicken (whichever part you like but I'll recommend thigh / drumstick)
  • Ginger (Loads of it!!)
  • Garlic
  • Oyster sauce
  • Dark soy sauce
  • Soy sauce
  • Oil
  • Spring onion (Optional)
First, fry the garlic and ginger till it's brown. Add in chicken, fry till it's cooked and add in all the sauces (Depends on the portion you're cooking, just add in a little bit of everything!!). Fry for a little while and add in water after. Braise it for about 20 minutes? Make sure it doesn't get too dry though, the gravy should be thickened and not dried up or diluted. Have it braised till the smell of the ginger is strong enough. When it's ready, garnish with spring onions and taa-dah! You're done for dinner!

You can add in a variety of optional ingredients, such as:
  • Chinese mushrooms
  • Shallot bulbs (don't slice, just throw the entire bulb in!)
  • Abalone clams
It all depends on what you like, really. Enjoy!
