This isn't usually the ginger chicken that you get in Chinese restaurants. It is a simple and tasty recipe one of my Chinese friends likes to make. It has a good flavour and isn't too over powering. The amounts are an estimation because I have never measured it out. I usually use the liquid from the jar of the ginger not the vinegar. I usually have it with fried rice and a salad. Most of the time for this recipe is the marinating time.
