  • ginger - 3" to 4"
  • tomato - 3 medium
  • cilantro - 1 bunch
  • jalapenos - to taste (1-3)
  • chicken - 3 lb


dice chicken into about 2" strips or cubes. make sure chicken is dry by patting it down with paper towels. julian ginger so it is very thin and about 4" in length. cut off stems of the cilantro and finely chop them, put aside. roughly chop the cilantro leaves and put aside. dice jalapenos into small half rounds, removing seeds to reduce heat.

place chicken and ginger into a pan with a goodly amount of oil on medium high heat. fry until chicken is light golden brown. do this in batches to avoid overcrowding the pan. put all chicken and ginger back into pan and add the chopped cilantro stems. slowly add chopped tomatoes if things start to stick.

continue adding tomatoes and jalapenos until chicken is tender and cooked all the way through. garnish with cilantro leaves and serve
