Sweet Ginger Garlic Chicken

Marinade:
8 cloves garlic, minced or crushed
2 tsp. ginger
1/2 C. soy sauce
1/4 tsp. paprika
2 T. honey
2 T. brown sugar

Meat & Veggies
2 lbs. chicken breast, cut into bite sized pieces
1/4 medium white onion, chopped fine
1 medium red bell pepper, julienned
optional 8 oz. cremini mushrooms, sliced very thin

Top with:
1/2 C. green onions - finely chopped

In a mixing bowl, whisk together garlic, ginger, soy sauce, paprika, honey, and brown sugar. Marinate chicken in this mixture for 30 minutes.

In a large skillet, add 1 T. oil to skillet, turn to a medium-high heat. Add chicken and all the veggies. Cook over a medium heat, stirring often for about 7-10 minutes. When chicken is lightly golden and veggies are fork-tender, remove from heat. Top with green onion. Serve over fried or white rice.

For a simple variation, use cubed pork or beef roast (any type) in place of chicken. Allow to marinate for 2-24 hours.
