I’m always on the lookout for a tasty recipe for chicken. This one is pretty good. The ginger and garlic flavor is very nice. Serve over rice.

Ginger Chicken

  • 1 1/2 pounds boneless chicken breast, cut into bite sized pieces
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons mirin
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon fresh ginger, grated
  • 2 cloves garlic, grated
  • 1 teaspoon vegetable oil
  • chopped scallions and sesame seeds for garnish

Cut the chicken up into bite-sized pieces. In a bowl, whisk the soy sauce, mirin, honey, ginger, and garlic together. Add in the chicken and allow to marinade for at least 30 minutes.

In a skillet, heat the vegetable oil. Add a single layer of chicken to the pan. You will probably have to fry the chicken in two batches. The single layer allows for good browning. When all the chicken is cooked, garish with the scallions and the sesame seeds.

If you wanted to make a glaze for the chicken, you could make the marinade again, substituting the fresh garlic and ginger for powdered. Then add to the empty skillet and reduce over high heat until syrupy. Toss the chicken in the glaze.
