I like chicken. My family likes chicken. And I'm always in search of making an economical, easy and tasty meal for my weekday dinners. I often buy an organic whole chicken from Wholefoods for about $10. Seriously, $10 for an organic chicken is such an amazing deal! And not to mention, flavorful, juicy and tender.
I love ordering this dish when we eat out. And I especially love the ginger & scallion oil. I've always wondered how this dish was prepared and assumed it was time consuming and difficult. Well folks, I was wrong. In fact, this dish is relatively simple and quick. Technique is important here so please follow the directions carefully.
The poached chicken is super moist and the stock created during the process is great for an asian style soup. I made extra ginger scallion oil so I could use it for other dishes. In fact, it's great on oatmeal topped with a couple of fried eggs. Believe me, it was divine. It's also great on veggies, steamed salmon or other fish and plain old steamed rice. And this awesome website is where I found this amazing recipe.
