Bill’s Ginger Chicken Recipe

My dad is awesome. At 84, he’s still kickin’ and cookin’ chicken’. Last night he reworked a recipe he wrote back in the 1980’s when microwave recipes were in fashion. And the result was phenomenal.

Ginger Chicken

Step 1

Place the chicken pieces in 3/4 cup of Cream Sherry. Cover and set aside. Prepare your vegetables while you let the chicken soak in the sherry. Prepare all vegetables before starting step 2 below:

Step 2

In a large pan, add olive oil and heat on medium high. Drain the chicken and dredge in the Wondra flour. Arrange pieces in the hot oil and lightly sprinkle with salt & pepper. When brown, carefully flip and lightly sprinkle the browned side with salt & pepper.

Step 3

In the same pan on medium heat, add the onions, mushrooms, ginger and garlic. Sauté until the onions are translucent. Add the tomatoes and cook for another 2-3 minutes, stirring constantly.

Step 4

Add the soy sauce, oyster sauce, and Tabasco sauce. Cook for another 3-5 minutes on medium until liquids are reduced in half. Add the remaining 1/4 cup cream sherry. Cook again, for 3-5 minutes, or until the liquid is reduced.

Step 5

Add the chicken back into the pan and turn to coat. Cover and cook for about 2 minutes to heat the chicken back up and coat with the sauce.

Step 6

Before serving toss in the Green Onions and Plate and garnish with a few whole fresh chive stems.

Pairs well with rice.

A beautiful Chinese inspired dish that is full of flavor, I think this is going to quickly become one of our family favorites. The original recipe? As far as microwave recipes go, it is very good. This new recipe? Amazing.

I added both recipes so you can choose which recipe to try (try the new one!).
