lightly simmered chicken

Tonight's dinner: "Tori no sappari ni" = lightly simmered chicken.
It isn't a very "romantic" dish, but it was definitely fast and easy to make.
Great for working moms and dads to make.

Ingredients: from the Mitsukan website
16 chicken wings
4 eggs (hard-boiled)
20g ginger
2 cloves garlic

1 cup vinegar
1 cup shoyu (soy sauce)
1/2 cup water
6 Tablespoons sugar

Steam or boil your broccoli and put on the side.
Rinse chicken.
Thinly slice the ginger and slightly smash the garlic.
Put into a stainless steel pot the ingredients for the sauce, ginger and garlic. Bring to a boil.
Add in chicken and peeled eggs. Simmer for 20 minutes.
Plate and garnish the dish with the steamed/boiled broccoli.
If you want to thicken the sauce, thicken after simmering the chicken for 20 minutes...make a cornstarch/water mixture and add a little at a time while sauce is boiling.
Serves 4.

*if you don't like broccoli, use another type of green veggie like green beans, chinese pea pods.

That looks wonderful.

I think chicken soup or stock has to be one of the most comforting dishes!
