Purchase 1 lb. chicken breast strips for stir-frying to save time.
For easier slicing of chicken breasts, place in the freezer for about 15 to 20 minutes before cutting.
To store fresh gingerroot, wrap it loosely in a paper towel and put it in a plastic bag in the refrigerator's vegetable compartment. It should keep well for several weeks. Ginger can also be frozen; it will be fine for grating, but the texture won't be firm enough for dicing or to make crisp slivers.
