Crispy Garlic-Ginger Chicken

As lots of you know I was born in San Francisco, grew up and
spent most of my life just south of SF near Stanford University.
Because of its cultural diversity the San Francisco Bay Area 
is home to some really fine ethnic restaurants, including 
 some top quality Chinese cuisine, which I LOVE.

Several years ago when I moved to this area of the Pacific Northwest, 
 I was dismayed to learn that the Chinese restaurants here
are abysmally bad. But my love of Asian inspired food
remained (and still remains) as strong as EVER ...
 so when we long for Chinese food, I make it myself.  

This is one of my favorites, and I've 
posted about it before  (clickable link) ~ 

It is really not difficult to make at all,  and it always 
satisfies my craving for Chinese food.

You can get a 
printable copy of the recipe over on my
recipe blog by clicking here.

Gluten Sensitive?
The good news is the coating used for the chicken is
made with cornstarch, not wheat flour, so it is naturally gluten free.
However the sauce does contain soy sauce, so
substitute tamari (verify that it is wheat free.)

I usually serve it with steamed rice and a simple
vegetable (this time steamed broccoli.)

If it sounds like something you might like,
I hope you'll give it a try!

Do you have a favorite Chinese dish that
you make, or that you like to order?

I'd LOVE to hear your favorites!
