There are certain dishes that one would only partake of when in a restaurant. For me, one of those dishes is ginger soy chicken. It has never crossed my mind to prepare it at home, until now. Ironically, it is quite easy to prepare, especially this slow-cooked version. Have the right ingredients, throw them into the crock-pot and after a few hours of doing other home chores, your lunch or dinner is ready! Ginger soy chicken is best partnered with steamed white rice, but lately, I've been obsessing about either sprouted rice or red rice. Many people think that red rice is about food coloring, but there is a rice variety that naturally has this color hue. It's delicious with a nutty texture.
