Ginger Chicken

Friday, September 10, 2010

If you ever had ginger chicken before, than you know that there are many ways to make them. Every restaurant have their own version of how it done. I for one don’t really like the one in the Chinese restaurant, due to the fact that it is too soggy and have too many ingredients. For me, ginger chicken only require two main ingredients and that is ginger and chicken. I want to be able to taste the spiciness of the semi crispy ginger and tender chicken, no other overpowering flavor needed. Of course, oil, soy sauce, oyster sauce, and pepper are an addition that also a must to perfect the dish!

Growing up ginger chicken is our favorite dish to make and eat. As mention before, we love our ginger and chicken to be crispy and with lots of pepper.
Beside from the fact that ginger taste good, it also very good for you. It is known to regulate your blood flow due to it heat factor. This is also a very popular dish for women post baby, to help their body heal and regulated itself. Not to mention it other benefit for nauseate, gas, stomachache, headache, but we’re not going to get to into that today.
The point is that ginger is just plain good for you and taste absolutely delicious no mater what you add to it!
