This Ginger Chicken Stir Fry goes great alongside a warm bowl of Jasmine rice and can be made in less than 20 minutes ? can’t get any better than that.
This recipe calls for a fair amount of celery, and is gluten free. However you can add other fresh vegetables if you prefer. Such as diced carrots, snow peas, broccoli etc. I have tried many different vegetable varieties and really am fond of using just celery for this dish. While my partner much prefers it with red and green peppers, to each their own.
Also it’s very important to use fresh ginger, the fresher the better. If you do not have that on hand you can use powdered however it’s just not as good.
Also you can use a wok or large frying pan to make this, besides that there really is no special technique to this dish. You are just simply making the sauce, prepare the vegetables and chicken and you’re good to go.
