Quick and easy ginger chicken tastes better than any take out, and made in the comfort of your own house in 45 minutes. Chicken is definitely restaurant worthy quality, is crispy fried on the outside, tender and juicy on the inside and bursting with exotic flavors when coated in a fragrant ginger sauce.
Recreating favorite take out asian dishes at home is my hobby. Chinese take out is always loaded with oil and sodium, with tons of calories and really unhealthy stuff. When you make the dish at home you can control the quality of the ingredients and the sodium/oil content. It is healthy and even more delicious than the restaurant version.
Ginger chicken is a yummy dish combining strips of tender chicken that is dipped in egg, flour and spice mix, and then fried to a crispy perfection. It is then drizzled with homemade ginger sauce and sprinkled with sesame seeds and scallions.
Chicken is crunchy and the sauce is a wonderful pairing of sweet, savory, spicy and sour. Ginger sauce is anything but boring, with multidimensional taste and unique flavors of ginger, garlic, honey, soy sauce and sriracha sauce.
The dish is a breeze to make. Simply coat the chicken in an egg/ flour mixture, fry and then coat with the sauce. Serve the chicken over rice and a side of asian vegetable medley for a complete meal. Follow the steps below to make this take out copycat recipe.
