soy-ginger chicken

by Heather

Raise your hand if you like easy meals (me! me! me!).

I bet you do too.

Today’s easy meal was helped along by the folks at Kikkoman (whose panko bread crumbs I really like). As part of the Foodbuzz Tastemaker program I was given the opportunity to try a new chicken/fish seasoned breading. This particulate flavor was soy-ginger.

Instead of trying to do anything fancy with it, I kept it simple and followed the directions on the back. The only modification I used was cutting the oil that you pan fry the chicken in, in half.

What can I say, I like to healthify things when I can.

The chicken came together super quickly (which was nice), but during the cooking I just couldn’t get over how gingery it smelled. I knew I just wasn’t going to like it. Ginger isn’t my favorite thing, but I can handle a bit. When dinner was all set an ready to go, I tried a piece. Guess what? I did like it!

While the ginger aroma is very strong, the bite isn’t very much. Jacob really liked it too.

Plus who doesn’t like a meal that comes with a plate full of dipping food? Lots of roasted veggies on the side: sweet potatoes, red potatoes, cauliflower and asparagus. My dipper of choice? Ketchup. 🙂

Are you a fan of dipper meals?

Check out a couple of my other favorites!

Crunchy munchy fish nuggets with rosemary roasted yams


Crunchy peanutty chicken strips


Normally I don’t go for packaged mixes like this, but on a busy night it sure made dinner easy!

What’s your favorite dipper meal? Links are welcome!

Tomorrow I have a pumped up microwavable breakfast to share. I think you’ll like it (hint: double chocolate).

Fun sample! I like making at home chicken strips too. I always do them baked vs fried or pan fried. Hope you have a good Thursday

Kikkoman pankco bread crumbs are delicious! I have never tried the soy ginger though, those look delicious!
Your peanut chicken strips too as well! I’ve done almond crusted before, but have yet to try the peanut!

Yum! This looks amazing! I love Panko Bread crumbs. I use those or corn flakes when using it with chicken, but I never saw these bread crumbs. Oh, I bet there good!

I’m a big fan of Kikkoman products but I haven’t run across the kara-age coating mix. I’ll have to check Amazon. This is a must try for me!
