Braised Ginger Chicken
This simple chicken braise was inspired by a recipe in “The Slanted Door” by Charles Phan, chef/owner of the San Francisco restaurant by the same name. A generous amount of ginger and garlic, cooked only with sake, a splash of fish sauce and the chicken's natural juices, creates a meaty, aromatic broth that's made into a sauce to finish the dish. A mandoline makes quick work of slicing the ginger, but a chef’s knife works, too. Fragrant jasmine rice is the perfect accompaniment, along with coarsely cracked white or black pepper.
tablespoon grapeseed or other neutral oil
medium garlic cloves, roughly chopped
01On a 6-quart Instant Pot, select Normal/Medium Sauté. Add the oil and heat until shimmering. Add the garlic and ginger, then cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add fish sauce and sake, then bring to a gentle simmer. Nestle chicken in an even layer, slightly overlapping the pieces, if needed.
