ginger chicken, a twitter-inspired dinner

You're familiar with the Twitter phenomenon, no? Everybody's doing it! Congress, even! I, of course am HOOKED. Small tidbits of usually mundane thoughts from people all over the globe, at my fingertips. Did I say mundane? Oh, but Twitter can be very helpful as well! For instance, yesterday, Mark Bittman twittered a link to his Ginger Chicken recipe, and BOOM, I knew what I was having for dinner! And Ohhhh...what a yummy dinner. I love ginger, but was still fearfull of the 1/2 pound the recipe calls for. That's a LOT of ginger, but I should have never doubted Bittman. The ginger mellows when cooked with the chicken. I could eat just the ginger as a side dish. In fact, I wish I'd put more in! Beautiful, cheap, and easy. So, thanks, twitter!
