Chicken with Ginger & Scallions (姜葱鸡肉) a homely and humble dish which my mum cooked almost weekly since we were young, and I still love eating it. It is the chicken version of her stir-fry pork with ginger and scallions recipe.

If I do not want to think of what to cook, I know I can fall back on timeless everyday classics (家常菜) like this dish – it is easy, cheap and delicious. This type of food is what I truly call the taste of home – almost every Chinese family have their family recipe for this dish. I particularly like to drizzle the savoury gravy over my rice … good to the last drop!

    Looks so good!! May I ask something not quite relevant? What is the brand of your wok/pan? I’m in search of a good one. :)

    Thanks again for what looks to another mouth-watering dish, Stir-fry Chicken with Ginger and Scallion. Could fresh mushrooms (white or shitake) be substituted for the canned straw mushrooms?

      Hi Howard, yes you can but add them earlier at step 2, to stir fry with the chicken. the canned mushrooms were already cooked hence added later.

    Chicken, ginger and scallion are perfect partners to make chinese dishes.
    I sometimes stir-fry, sometimes steam. Yours look so tempting. Oh, hungry now. Have to cook dinner right now.
