Ginger-Chicken Stir Fry Recipe

"Stir fries require very little cooking time and you can pretty much use any vegetables you like, but the star of this one is the ginger. This dish is quick and easy to make, but get all of your ingredients together (including mixing the sauce) before you start cooking because everything happens fast! Serve with rice, and garnish with sliced green onions."

    Footnotes

    • Cook’s Note:
    • If fresh ginger root is not available, you can substitute ginger paste (such as Gourmet Garden®) which can be found in the refrigerated produce section of the supermarket. If the sauce is too thick for you, thin it out by adding a bit more water until you arrive at the consistency that you like.
