Ginger Scallion Chicken (China)

Ingredients

  • 1 (3 pound) broiler-fryer chicken
  • 1 (2 x 1-inch) piece fresh ginger root, cut into thin slices
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • Water
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 8 scallions, finely chopped
  • 3 tablespoons grated pared fresh ginger root
  • 2 teaspoons white vinegar

Instructions

  1. Remove giblets from chicken and reserve for another use. Rinse chicken and place in large saucepan or Dutch oven. Add sliced ginger, 1 teaspoon of the salt, 1/4 teaspoon of the pepper and enough water to cover chicken. Cover and bring to boil over high heat. Reduce heat and simmer until tender, about 40 minutes. Let chicken stand in water until cool.
