I’m making ginger fried chicken his is my attempt to replicate something that we had at a restaurant on our recent vacation in Hawaii and it was called ginger fried chicken and I was stupid and I didn’t ask them what else was in it besides ginger so I had to make it up.

I got about a pound of boneless skinless chicken breast here You can use thighs also, some people might prefer that I think that’s actually what the restaurant used but these were on sale, so I’m using these. And I’ve got them cut up into I’d say about an inch square chunks here.

Make Ginger Fried Chicken

And we’re gonna add some garlic lots of garlic and lots of fresh ginger I have not tried this with powdered ground ginger I’ve only used fresh, I would recommend using fresh but the cool thing is you don’t have to peel it.

You just need to mince up the ginger and a little bit of brown sugar and some soy sauce and a couple tablespoons of apple cider vinegar Rice vinegar works really well, too but I kinda like the sweetness and the fruitiness that apple cider vinegar adds to things Just kinda get everything down in there.

And then, you wanna set this aside to marinate for at least 15 minutes and up to an hour Honestly, I just leave it at room temperature I don’t know if that’s FDA approved or whatever but I think if it’s under an hour, you’re fine So that’ll give you time to make a salad or get some other vegetables ready to steam to go with it.

And then, this is for our breading mixture This is just cornstarch and all-purpose flour with some salt and pepper So just get that stirred together, ok All right, 15 minutes later, I’m gonna use a little slotted spoon to pull the chicken out drain off as much of the marinade as you can but it’s fine if some of the ginger garlic chunks stick on there, and in fact, I think it’s nice.

And then, just coat everything with your flour mix Ok, so once all of the pieces are completely coated, you just wanna let them sit here in the pan I’m gonna spread them out so they’re not touching.

And then, just let them sit here for, like, 10 minutes and that, letting them sit like that is gonna help the breading not fall off when you fry them So it’s pretty important Heat up about half an inch of oil in a pot to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and carefully place some chicken pieces into the oil.

Don’t crowd the pan because you’ll drop the temperature too fast and end up with greasy chicken Fry on the first side for two to three minutes or until the bubbles in the oil have subsided a lot and then turn it and cook another two minutes or so Once they’re evenly golden brown then you can pull them out and set them on a rack to cool while you cook the next batch And there we have it, you can serve this with limes or lemons or just as is This printed recipe and all our recipes are always available at fitnesslifetip.com.
