Chicken In Ginger and Spring Onion Sauce

Another quick and tasty Chinese recipe to add to your portfolio. This is a sauce that appears frequently in my house when I’m entertaining guests. It’s sooo tasty, people will think you spent a lot more time making it than you really did.


500g of chicken, chopped
3 small bunches of spring onions, chopped (green and white parts separated)
4 atarodo/habanero, chopped
3 inch piece of ginger, minced
2 cloves of garlic, minced
2 tablespoons of oyster sauce
3 tablespoons of soy sauce (or 2 Maggi cubes)
2 tablespoons of Sesame oil


Marinate the chicken pieces in 1 tablespoon of soy sauce for 30 minutes.

Place a wok over medium heat and add the sesame oil. After 1 minute,add the white parts of the spring onions and sautee for 2 minutes.

Add the chicken pieces and stir till no longer pink.

Add all the other ingredients apart from the green part of the spring onions. Stir constantly for 5 minutes. Taste for salt.

Add 1/2 cup of water, and bring to a gentle boil. Add the spring onions, simmer for 30 seconds, then serve.



Hi, my name is Chidinma. I’ve been happily married for 4+ years (actually almost 6 years now), and my husband and I have been trying to have our own children for almost all the time we’ve been married, with no success…yet. We haven’t lost hope (far from it), and we believe it will happen very soon.
