Chicken Drumsticks with Sweet Ginger Soy Sauce over Orzo

Drumsticks
Orzo
Sweet Ginger Soy Sauce from Williams-Sonoma


This dish was very easy. First, I marinated the chicken drumsticks in the Sweet Ginger Soy Sauce and added some more to a baking pan. Then, I baked them in the oven at 425 degrees for about 45 mins. After boiling and straining the orzo, I served the drumsticks over the orzo and drizzled some extra sauce over both. DH devoured this dish!




Turkey and Vegetable Stir Fry over White Rice

Turkey Breast Tenderloins
4 garlic cloves minced
5 mushrooms sliced
1 cup of matchstick carrots
1 cup of chopped broccoli
1/4 red onion sliced
olive oil
s&p
Sweet Ginger Soy Sauce
rice

First, I started by setting the rice cooker with just basic white rice with a bit of salt and olive oil. While the rice cooked, I chopped my veggies and cut the tenderloins into smaller strips. To make the stir fry, I added some olive and the minced garlic to a wok with the stove set on high. Then, I added the turkey tenderloins.

Once the turkey started to brown, I added the sweet ginger soy sauce and all of the veggies. I let that fry until all the veggies had absorbed the sauce (about 5-10 mins.)
When the rice was done, I served the stir-fry over a bed of white rice. The result was delicious!

The stirfry looks great... I've been wanting to attempt this dish, but have been a bit reserved. I have to give it a try! Thanks for sharing.
