Fresh Basil Ginger Chicken with Clear Noodles

Welcome summer with this refreshing dish from ingredients freshly from your garden. 

Marinate your chicken (any variety is fine, I used chicken drumsticks here) with some soy sauce,white pepper, rice vinegar, sea salt and sesame oil. Peel and chop up a cup of fresh ginger and a little garlic powder. Mix well and let chicken sit in the refrigerator for at least 12 hours. 

Sauté chicken in a large pan with medium heat. When meat starts browning, slowly pour in the remaining chicken liquid into the pan. Chop up some fresh sweet basil, sweet onion and a few cherry tomato. Stir in tomato and half of basil leaves into the pan. Turn down to low heat, put a lid over the hot pan until the chicken is fully cooked through (about 15-20 mins for me). 

While chicken is cooking, boil up some water in a seperate small pot. Cook any of your favorite noodles. Drain noodle when it's ready. Spread it evenly in a bowl. Place chicken pieces on noodle carefully. Spoon sauce and vegetables over the chicken. Garnish the plate with the rest of the raw basil.
