Ginger Chicken or Adraki Chicken

We all know ginger as a wonder herb. It has not only been found to be useful in managing side effects of chemotherapy but is also being considered for stunting growth of cancerous cells. Ginger very easily walks into Asian kitchens. Had in a variety of forms julienned as a pickle, grated and cut in dishes, dishes garnished with ginger our dishes feel quite incomplete without ginger.

This is a modified recipe that is put together in our home. I love it for it is so easy and does not require much ingredients. Can be easily had as a snack or in the main course.
