Ginger Chicken or Gai Pad Khing is a simple Thai dish packed with flavor. Ginger Chicken or Gai Pad Khing include ingredients which impart a flavor that will have you looking for more Thai recipes.

As with most stir-fried recipes, you can add or eliminate ingredients based on your personal taste.  The flavoring agents, however (dark soy sauceoyster sauce, and Golden Mountain sauce), are the key to this recipe’s taste.  Sometimes I add snow peas or red and green peppers.  I also love cilantro and add it as a predominant flavor.
