Ginger is a plant root, or rhizome, more correctly stated, that has vast uses in both medicinal as well as culinary arts. Some of the tastiest dishes you will ever eat are made with ginger. Among them, meats, poultry and many sweets are well suited to the use of ginger.
Two ginger recipes that are easy to fix and delicious are listed for you below:

2 tbsp corn oil
2 whole chicken breasts cut up in to cubes
sea salt and fresh pepper
1 small onion, minced
1 clove of garlic, minced
1/2 inch long piece of ginger peeled and sliced very thinly
2 cups chicken stock or broth
2 tsp curry powder
1/2 tsp red pepper
1 tsp lemon juice
1 c frozen green beans
1c frozen carrots
Heat your oil and cook the chicken in smaller batches so that it browns evenly.
