I don’t know about you for sure, but I love take-out! It often gives me a chance to have things prepared quickly that I don’t often get at home. However, the problem with this for me is that I don’t live anywhere near a take-out restaurant. It’s 25 miles to the nearest grocery store, so I’m sure you can imagine how far I must go to get some good take-out, which means that I need to figure out how to make these awesome recipes at home. That is just the case with this Ginger Chicken Stir Fry inspired by Elaine from China Sichuan Food with a few adaptions to my own family’s tastes and what is readily available in my area.
For those that live closer to take-out restaurants, I know that the expense can add up significantly for a family and that many are also concerned about the sodium levels of take-out. Cooking some of your favorite take-out recipes at home becomes a must for the pocketbook and the waistline. This ginger chicken stir fry uses fresh ingredients and really tames the salt content. Not to mention that this ginger chicken stir fry cooks up quickly. Pair it with your favorite fried rice recipe and have it on the table in less time than it takes to call, order take-out, and go pick it up. This ginger chicken stir fry is the perfect combination of crisp vegetables and a slightly spicy ginger sauce that is sure to replace your take-out order!
