garlic_ginger_chicken_1
If you didn’t already guess from the picture, here is another amazing Chinese recipe, garlic ginger chicken. Just like the name says, this dish gets a lot of its flavor from fresh garlic and ginger. The chicken bits are coated with a batter and then fried in the deep fryer until crispy. The sauce is very simple, just basically rice wine, soy sauce, and sugar. If you want to add a little heat to this dish, you can add some dried red pepper flakes. This is a very easy recipe that takes little time to prepare. Enjoy.

Great dish! I prefer rice wine vinegar (no alcohol) to white rice wine (alcohol) simply because my favorite Chinese restaurants do it that way. Some really great options I like to use: Add in a few dried chile pods when you stir fry the garlic - I like to use "Chile de Arbol" pods available in most Mexican or international groceries - also, lightly toast a little sesame seeds in a dry non stick pan and add them into the sauce at the end - or some cashews or peanuts. any or all of these are great. Also, being diabetic, I use 1 or 2 packets of splenda in place of the sugar, doesn't affect the taste at all...

Mashezia- No they are no the same thing. If you can't find rice white, you can use white wine.

Is there a difference between rice wine and rice wine vinegar? Could you use rice wine vinegar in this recipe?
