Lemon Galangal Chicken and Greens

Posted 2018-05-27 by Maddy Butlerfollow
Galangal is a root that looks remarkably like ginger (in fact, I think I've used it in the place of ginger without realising!) It has a stronger, more pungent taste than ginger and it's perfect in stir fries, such as the recipe below.



Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 10-15 minutes
Serves: 4

Ingredients
1/4 cup oil
500g chicken fillets
1 red onion
2 garlic cloves
4cm piece galangal
2 zucchinis
1 bunch bok choy
1 bunch pak choi
1 bunch coriander
Juice of 1 lemon
1/4 cup tamari or soy sauce

Method
  • Prepare the ingredients: finely dice or mince the galangal and garlic. Slice the onion in half, then slice thinly. Leave to the side with the garlic and galangal.
  • Chop the zucchinis in half vertically, then in half horizontally, and slice thinly into 3-4cm batons. Roughly chop the bok choy and pak choi, and the coriander. Remove the fat from the chicken fillets, slice lengthways, then thinly slice.
  • Heat the oil in a wok over high heat. Add the onion, garlic and galangal for a minute or two, to allow the onion to soften. Add the chicken and cook for about 5 minutes, or until the chicken is starting to brown.
  • Add the zucchini batons and cook for a further few minutes. When the zucchini starts to soften, add the bok choy and pak choi and stir well. Cook for 2 minutes or until the greens are wilted.
  • Turn off the heat and stir through the lemon juice, soy sauce and coriander.



  • Serve immediately with rice, noodles, couscous or pasta.
