We all have a soft spot for the sticky-sweet chicken that’s a staple of takeout dinners. But it’s not exactly a meal for any night of the week—until now. We’re swapping out the heavy glaze for a fresh burst of ginger and a swirl of honey and soy sauce. Served with tender green beans on a bed of jasmine rice, it’ll give you a good reason to toss out the phone number for your delivery joint.
