Immune-Boosting Stir-Fried Chicken with Ginger

Story

No one knows exactly when the chicken was stir-fried with ginger or who invented this recipe, but it is believed to be influenced by Chinese cuisine, although the Chinese version sees a hefty dash of liquor added to the pan. Others believe that it’s a dish that emerged from the abundance of chicken meat that was often left over in the wake of Chinese New Year because after bringing pork, chicken, various food to the offerings, it may not be eaten in time or felt repetitive to eat it boiled. So, they tried to stir fry with herbs like ginger. However, no definitive evidence has been found, there is no corroborating evidence, it’s purely anecdotal.
