How to cook "with visual instructions" "using familiar ingredients from your local grocery stores" healthy, traditional and delicious Japanese dishes!!

Flavorful Ginger Chicken (Gluten-free)


Today I introduce you to “Homemade Ginger Chicken.” This is an incredibly flavorful dish marinated mainly with ginger and soy sauce.


As you know, ginger is extremely healthy. When you cook ginger, Gingerol, which is a flavor ingredient, changes chemically to Shogaol. This warms up our body and increases our metabolism. I often use ginger in my meals to make dishes flavorful and healthier!!

In this recipe I use chicken, but you can use pork instead of chicken if you prefer. If you use pork just make sure it is sliced thinly.

The recipe is very easy.
Marinate cut chicken in a zipper plastic bag. Cook it with sliced onion in a pan.

    • Wow! That is very interesting story!! Thank you for the information!! I always store peeled ginger wrapped with aluminum foil in refrigerator so that grating becomes easier and ginger lasts longer😃 I hope you like the dish!!
