Dinner and bento – ginger chicken and vegetable stir-fry with rice

Jac cooked a chicken and vegetable stir-fry, flavoured with garlic and ginger. She served it in a big bowl on freshly cooked rice. It was delicious, with carrots, beans, onions and champignons, tender pieces of chicken thigh meat and gingery gravy soaked into the rice. Jac doesn’t really like ginger, but she cooks dishes like ginger chicken because she knows how much I love it. I think it’s wonderful of her to indulge me like that. Ginger chicken has been one of my favourites since I was a little girl with my hair in pig-tails, growing up in Malaysia. :)
