THIS is my kind of food! It's light, yet filling. The flavors satisfy every taste bud I have!
I love my veggies with a little crunch and my chicken with a little tang.
And the smell- oh my!
2 lbs chicken breasts cut into strips
1 1/2 cups self-rising flour
3/4 cup chicken broth
3/4 cup water
juice of 2 lemons
1 1/2 t ground ginger
1/3 cup (cane) sugar
1/2 cup oil or fat for frying
Dip chicken strips into the flour. Brown in the oil on all sides, lightly.
Bring broth, water, juice, and ginger to a simmer and drop browned chicken into the simmering liquid.
Sprinkle with sugar. Cover and simmer on low heat until chicken is cooked through and the liquid has thickened. Approximately 10 minutes.
Serve over rice that has been cooked in chicken broth, with a side of stir-fried vegetables, that have been cooked lightly in a little oil and soy, preferably Kikkoman.
* Tips: Cut chicken into chunks to stretch it further and/or serve with lots of rice!
