I accept that the title is not very enlightening, but I assure you is it both accurate and well worth making! Chicken with ginger and garlic, what's not to like?
Half a chicken breast
A good grating of root ginger
Half a clove of garlic
4 or 5 slices of salami, it depends on how big they are. enough to wrap the chicken.
1 portion of rice, about 75g
1 portion of steamed vegetables, I like broccoli.
1 dollop of cream cheese, I use Philly with Chives, or some chicken stock and coriander garnish
Boil the rice. While the rice is on, wrap the chicken in the salami, incorporating the grated ginger and crushed garlic. It should look a bit like a sausage.
Heat a little oil in a pan and add the chicken. Cook, turning, until done. Rest until the rice is ready.
When the rice is half done, insert the florets of broccoli, stem down, so that the stems boil and the florets steam.
Arrange all on a warm plate and add a good dollop of cream cheese, which will melt a bit and form a creamy sauce. Or reduce a little chicken stock if you prefer. Dress with coriander, basil or parsley.
It may be simple, but it is very, very good. Next time I make it I'll take a photo!
