Gentleman’s Mom’s Chicken Ginger

Bryan made this dinner for me while I napped. What a good boyfriend! 🙂 It’s very home cooked and nourishing. Stewing for a few hours makes it so tender too!  

My roommate liked it so much that she asked for the recipe (note: she has never ever asked for any of my own main dish recipes lol). I concede he is a much better cook … but I will be always the baker/dessert maker of the household!

2 chicken breasts

2 tablespoon of sugar
3 gloves of garlic
1 1/2 cup of water
olive oil
3 tablespoon fish sauce

Cut chicken breasts into cubes. Drizzle with olive oil and black pepper and set aside

Add sugar to pot and heat on medium-high. When sugar starts to caramelize, add olive oil to stop the caramelization process. The sugar can quickly go from caramelized to burnt so be diligent. Turn heat to medium-low

After adding oil add the chicken. Cook chicken till outside light brown

Add water. Add fish sauce. Add ginger. Let pot reduce until flavorful. If you want it sweeter, add a little more sugar. If you want it saltier, add more fish sauce.
