Expert Tips

Sautéing the chicken breasts in ground ginger gives this dish a pungent ginger flavor.

Garnish this recipe with lemon slices and green onion brushes. To make the brushes, see the Make It Special note on page 83.

Leftover Lemon-Ginger Chicken makes an excellent cold Asian salad. Slice the chicken and serve it over mixed greens; make a dressing using rice vinegar, soy sauce, minced green onions, sesame oil and a pinch of sugar. Sprinkle toasted sesame seed over the salad.
