This super easy and delicious ginger soy chicken stir-fry used to be a yearly treat for me. My grandmother would make this out of what I call “worship chickens” which are whole, boiled chickens that are used to in the annual “cheng meng” ceremony where we pay respect to past ancestors at their graves. I’ve modified to recipe so that I can enjoy the same flavour without having to wait for the ceremony!
Admittedly it is not the same as one made from the worship chickens which is usually drier as the chicken is cooked twice (and if it’s been used as a worship chicken, it has been out air-drying in the Thai summer weather for at least half a day!) But this version is tasty in its own way, and still fixes my craving every time 🙂
If you want to check out the real deal, a slightly more involved recipe but one that is true to what my grandmother makes and is REALLY what I prefer when I am not in a rush, check out this one: Grandma’s Twice Cooked Chicken.
