Ginger Chicken with fried Garlic


One day I bought a portion of ginger chicken at a local restaurant. It was nice and I promised myself to make one of my own. So this is the result. I used only a whole piece of thigh since this was considered my trial recipe. And it was good, I liked the taste of ginger and garlic on it.

Make the ginger chicken


A piece of chicken thigh, fresh one. ( I bought it at the traditional market where they sell fresh chicken )

4 cloves of garlic, thinly sliced

One thumb sized of fresh ginger, grated

1 1/2  cup of water

Salt and pepper to taste

1 tablespoon vegetable oil for frying


Boil the water and put the thigh in together with grated ginger

Sautee the garlic till lightly brown then pour into the boiling chicken, sprinkle with salt and pepper

Cook  till tender and  you have  small amount of the chicken stock

Remove the chicken from the stock and fry  for two minutes on each side

Transfer  the chicken onto a serving plate


6 cloves of medium garlic, minced

1 piece of garlic, about 2cm, grated

2 tablespoons vegetable oil for frying

Maggi chicken block

Green onion for garnish


Fry the garlic in a pan till turns slightly  brown, put in the grated ginger. Stir regularly to avoid the garlic turns too dark. Sprinkle with maggie chicken block to taste. Remove from heat and pour into the chicken. Add one or two tablespoons of the stock or you can set aside and have it as a very healthy soup. Garnish with sliced green onion.
