Chicken with Ginger

Happy Monday to you all! I hope you had a good weekend and are looking forward to this week. I am going to post another wonderful recipe from Everyday Food.

I cut this in half as I had no need for 4 servings, but one day of leftovers sounded fine. I served this over rice but I cheated and used the microwave kind, so I didn't have to worry about preparing that as well.

You will need some chicken, vinegar, sugar, ginger, garlic, onion, soy sauce and green onion. The green onion was late and missed the photo.

Chop up your onion and garlic.

Chop up your ginger, enjoy the wonderful fragrance it gives off.

Soak it in some water as this will take some of the bite out of the flavor. Ginger is a very bold taste if you have not cooked with it fresh before.

Mix your soy sauce, vinegar and sugar and set aside.

Chop up your green onion.

And finally, chop up your chicken. I always use a separate board for chopping my raw meats.

Now that we are all prepped you can start to cook. Get some oil in a pan and get it hot.

Brown the chicken for 6-8 minutes. If you are making the full recipe you will need 2 pans or to do this in batches.

When the chicken is browned get it out of the pan and set it aside.

Add in the onion, garlic and ginger and cook for about 8-10 minutes. Add in the soy sauce mixture and cook a couple of minutes until it thickens.

Add the chicken back in and cook until it warms back up, just a minute or 2.

Get it off the heat and stir in the scallions and you are done!

This dish brings so much flavor in a short amount of time, which we all need after a long day at work. A lot of this could be prepped the night before and when you get home you can just start cooking.

I hope you all have a great week.
