Ginger Chicken

Happy Thursday! So on my meal plan this week, I was supposed to have take out Indian Monday, homemade chicken tenders on Tuesday, Chinese Take out Wed, and Chili tonight. Here is what went down…

Sunday lunch, the girls and I hit up the local Indian buffet. I gorged on EVERYTHING, and the girls noshed on Tandoori chicken, rice, Naan bread, and rice pudding. They were not fans of anything else.

Sunday dinner- Enchilada night happened!!!!

Monday night- Hubby was out. The girls wanted pizza. I turned on the oven…003

Tuesday- Leftover enchiladas from Sunday night https://wordpress.com/post/54265656/3432/

Wednesday- Chinese night was a go! My college friend, Miss Mandy (as the girls call her) came over and we ate, drank wine, and helped the girls with homework! We love Miss Mandy!

Thursday…CHICKEN!!! I thought about doing a Throwback Thursday chicken recipe, but I decided to go with a throw together dish from what I had in the kitchen and make it all new again. I came up with this LOVELY!!!

Ginger Chicken

Ingredients

2 chicken breasts
1 onion, chopped
one tablespoonish of salt, pepper, poultry seasoning, garlic powder, and ginger paste
1 tablespoon of minced ginger
1 cup liquid (broth, wine, water) I used veggie broth, because it is what I had
2 tablespoons butter and flour

Directions

Brown your seasoned chicken breasts on high heat (salt, pepper, poultry seasoning, garlic powder)
Take out of pan and add in your onions and ginger (paste and minced)
Add in your butter and flour. Whisk well. Add your liquid. Keep whisking vigorously until it is all mixed through and you have your desired consistency. Add more liquid if needed. Slice your chicken in thin pieces. Add back in to the sauce. Serve over rice.

After dinner I had a few leftovers and mixed it in my leftover Pad Thai Noodles. I added a tablespoon of sesame oil, a spoonful of Hoisin, and some leftover peas that were in the fridge. #leftoverlovin
