Ginger Chicken...when the heat strikes!!!

Ginger Chicken cause Summer is hereyikes!!! Hate itnot Ginger Chicken but Summer!!!the Delhi Summer...its hot and humidand of course that means I will make things that require the least amount of chopping, cooking etcquick in and out of the kitchenand this fits the bill...our lunch yesterday








Ginger Chicken

Ingredients:

  • Chicken thighs, boneless and skinless, 500 gms
  • Onions, finely chopped, 1 large
  • Light Soy Sauce, 4 tbsp
  • Vinegar, 4 tsp
  • Honey, 2 tbsp
  • Fresh Ginger, finely grated, 2 tbsp
  • Oil, 2 tbsp
  • Water, about ¼ cup
  • Sesame seeds, 1 tbsp (optional)
  • Green onions, for garnishing
  • Salt and Pepper, if needed, to taste


Instructions: 

Wash and clean the chicken. Remove all the extra fat and cut into bite sized pieces.

Whisk together the light soy sauce, vinegar, honey, and ginger together in a bowl. Add in the chicken and mix well. Marinate for at least half an hour. Once ready to cook, strain the chicken from the marinade and keep aside.

Heat a wok or frying pan over medium heat and add oil. Once hot, add the chicken and stir fry in batches till almost done. Do remember that the chicken and marinade have honey in it so if the pan is too hot , the sugar will burn and get bitter; if the pan is too cool, chicken will braise in its own water instead of frying. Please adjust heat accordingly.

Once done, take the chicken out and keep aside.

Add the chopped onion and the reserved marinade to the pan. Fry for 10-15 seconds and add the water. Let the mixture come to a boil and reduce the heat. Let it simmer for a couple of minutes till onions go soft and the sauce reduces to coating consistency. Check and adjust seasonings.

Add the chicken back in and mix well. Add in the sesame seeds, mix and take the chicken off heat.

Garnish with green onions and serve with rice.

  3. This looks delicious and simple! I've never used vinegar or honey in a stir fry. Is it just white vinegar?
