The influence of Chinese foods on the everyday cuisine of Thailand is everywhere, but often it is in name only. The flavor of this Thailand-style ginger chicken recipe is quite a surprise, with just a hint of spiciness from the addition of Thai long chili. We use wafer-thin slices of chicken breast cooked with a healthy portion of fresh ginger, cloud ear mushroom, and green onion, all in a tasty sauce made with fresh garlic and black peppercorn.

Ingredient List:
What's in our Ginger Chicken.
