Serving: 1 person Preparation time: 25 minutes
2 1⁄2 tbspn grated fresh ginger root
2 tbspn chopped garlic
1⁄8 tspn crushed red pepper flakes
4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
1⁄2 cup flour
Salt and pepper, to taste
2 tablespoons olive oil
4 tablespoons soy sauce
1⁄2 cup brown sugar
1⁄2 cup white wine vinegar
1 tspn fish sauce
1 cup sugar snap pea (mangetout)
Combine the ginger root, garlic and red pepper flakes in a cup and set aside. Mix flour with salt and pepper to taste and dredge chicken pieces in this. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet. Saute the chicken until browned on both sides and cooked through. Remove the chicken and put in a warm dish, set aside in low oven to keep warm.
Add the ginger-garlic mixture to the skillet and saute until lightly browned. Add the soy sauce, brown sugar, vinegar and fish sauce (if using). Bring the mixture to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer, stirring frequently, until the sauce reduces and thickens.
Pour the sauce over the chicken pieces in the warm serving dish and keep warm until ready to serve. Trim and shred the sugar snap peas diagonally.
