Ginger Chicken. Recipe post by Ayesha Nazreen from USA. She didn’t send in a description. the word ginger brings me memories of the time when i had delivered my first baby ANISHA . At moms place, after delivery treatment is totally different from my in-laws place. I was forced into both the treatments and under went a lot of mental and physical strain. every morning by 4 o clock i was given a huge glass of ginger juice mixed with a lot of honey and some medicinal powder (the consistency used to be so thick that i use to find it so very difficult to drink the ginger juice).This treatment was from my in-laws place. Till date i have a disliking towards ginger because of thet. But this recipe sounds to be delicious. It’s a must try recipe folks.
