Stir Fry Chicken w/ Ginger & Brown Rice:

My Rating: ★★★★☆ 4/5

This is a traditional Khmer dish that my mom would make at least once a week. I looked it up on the internet and found a recipe that had familiar ingredients. Boyfriend did an amazing job at making this, it was so good. We didn’t have enough ginger though so I kind of rated this recipe unfairly with a 4 because I do think if we had enough ginger, I’d have given it a 5!

Ingredients Needed:

1 lb of chicken thigh sliced thin

1 c of sliced yellow onion

1 sliced jalapeno pepper

1/3 c of ginger sliced thin

2 garlic clove mince

2 T of oyster sauce

2 T of soy seasoning soy sauce

1 T of fish sauce

1 T of sugar

2 green onion for garnish chop

3 T of vegetable oil for stir fry

4 red potatoes, chopped

1 head of broccoli, chopped into florets

1/4 c each: Dijon mustard and honey
