Monday's value meal...

This time of year, when the hours of daylight decline, I try to squeeze the most out of the remaining summer so I like to make quick and easy meals.  Today's is super easy, quick and light so you can get the rest of the garden weeded or just sit back and enjoy the sunset.

Gingery Ground Chicken

12 ounces ground chicken, preferably a combination of dark and light meat

2 tablespoons saké
2 teaspoons sugar
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 teaspoon ginger juice

Place the chicken in a skillet. Add the saké and sugar and stir to separate the bits of meat before starting to cook. Place the pan over low heat and cook, continuing to break up the meat into crumb-like clusters. At first the liquid will look cloudy, but within a few minutes it will become clear and the meat will turn white.

Skim the liquid to remove excess fat and then add the soy sauce. Continue to simmer for another 2 to 3 minutes and then add the ginger juice. Turn up the heat to reduce the excess liquid in the pan. Ideally, about 1 teaspoon will remain. Remove from the heat, let cool to room temperature, cover, and refrigerate for up to 3 days or freeze for up to 1 month. Reheat over low heat, adding a few drops of water, if necessary, and stirring to break up clusters.
Sprinkle with parsley and serve over rice or on a bun like a sloppy joe.

  1. Interesting recipe. And one of the first I have seen that call for both white and dark meat.


I love to read your comments, but due to spamming I have had to turn on the word verification again. Sorry for the extra step.
