Soy Ginger Chicken

 

Did you know, about 5000 years before, the common-spice ginger was considered an item of luxury? One would have to barter a healthy sheep or even an entire livestock for a pound or two of ginger! Here’s a lip-smacking appetizer starring the aromatic root-spice – garlic-marinated, batter-fried chicken, peppers, tomato and garlic are sautéed and tossed in a ginger-laden soy-chilli sauce. A hint of sugar and pepper play in tandem taking the appetizer up a notch.
