This is my mum’s classic Thai Ginger Chicken Stir-fry (Gai Pad King) that I loved to eat as a kid. It’s one of those authentic restaurant dishes that is really easy to recreate at home.

Note Icon

Notes:

– Young ginger has very pale, thin skin and is milder than regular or old ginger (which has the light brown skin. If using regular ginger, use half this amount.

– If fresh wood ear mushrooms are not available, you can use dried wood ear mushrooms. Soak them in hot water for 20 minutes or until tender.

Easy tasty weeknight dish

Despite the fact I had to compromise by using old ginger and dried woodear this dish tasted really tasty. Had it with stir fried bok choy and cauliflower rice. Lovely quick fix and will have it again
