A recipe I got from Cookpad TV.
If you're ginger lover, this is perfect simple dish for it! You'll get nice kick of ginger spice with flavor of curry powder.
Most of the time when I make sauce, I use the common method using potato starch and water it down and then pour into the pan to thicken the sauce. This is another method where you sprinkle the potato starch on raw chicken first and then grill with it. When the chicken starts sweating, the juice will automatically mix with potato starch and it create this nice thick chicken sauce that you're ready to add additional sauce.
If you get chicken breasts with 4 packs just double the measurement for the sauce.
