Grandma's Quick Ginger Braised Chicken

Just got home after a long bus ride from Connecticut. Realized I have some 2 month-old frozen chicken breasts in the freezer so I made this quick dinner dish to use it up. Now I'm not saying this recipe ask for 2 month-old frozen chicken breasts, I'm just saying it's quick. LOL.

2 chicken breasts, cut into chunks
1/2 cup thinly sliced ginger (more if you like)
1/2 onion, sliced
1 tablespoon chopped garlic
4 tablespoon oyster sauce
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon white pepper
1 tablespoon sesame oil
2 cup water
3 tablespoon oil

Heat wok. Add in ginger slices once it's hot, without oil. Fry until ginger is fragrant and dry. Set aside.

Add oil into wok and brown chicken pieces. Set aside. Return ginger back into the wok with onions. Fry until onions are soft, then add in garlic. Fry until it's brown.

Add in soy sauce, oyster sauce, white pepper and sugar. Fry until mixture is thick. Add in chicken pieces and water. Cook for about 15 minutes or until sauce thickens.

Add in sesame oil and stir. Dish and serve with white rice.
