Sweet Chicken on a Fried Ginger Bed ( Gai Wan Noon Rung )


The point of sitting this chicken on a bed of fried ginger is the sharpness of the ginger cuts through the sweetness of the chicken source. As ever, serve this dish with rice, and eat mainly the rice using the expensive meat as a flavoring rather than the bulk of the meal.

200 gms Chicken Breast
1 Tablespoon Light Soy Sauce
1 Tablespoon Sugar
1/2 Teaspoon Ground Pepper
80 gms Sliced Ginger
Sesame Seeds

1. Chop chicken to cubes, mix it with light soy sauce, sugar, and ground pepper and leave to marinade for 10 minutes.
2. Peel and thinly slice the ginger, fry until golden brown.
3. Coat the chicken in the sesame seeds, and fry (with it's marinade) until cooked, at the end, add the ginger and fry it in the pan to pick up any remaining juices from the pan, lay it on the place and the chicken on top.
4. Eat, as ever, with fragrant rice.
