Japanese Ginger Chicken & Brown Rice

Japanese food is always on top of my list of favorite cuisines.  After having my initial taste of the usual teriyaki, sushi and tempura, I’ve ventured off into more of the obscure flavors of ramen, okonomiyaki, korokke, yakitori…and the list goes on and on…

I was recently craving some Japanese ginger chicken when I decided to make this as this week’s meal prep – and wow, is it good!  Not only was it simple to make, but the flavors of ginger, sweet sake and soy sauce really burst in your mouth…

So there you have it – I hope you enjoy this wonderful new 40/30/30 dish!
