Serve Ming Tsai's chicken recipe family style on a platter.
Pre-heat oven to 500 degrees, fan on if possible. In a large bowl, mix all the ingredients together and season well with kosher salt and freshly cracked black pepper. In a saute pan, roasting pan or cast iron pan coated lightly with oil on medium-high heat, sear the chicken thighs first, skin side down until brown then flip until brown, about 6-8 minutes total. Remove the chicken and add the rest of the bowl. Sautee for 8 minutes until soft then top with chicken, skin side up. Roast in the oven for 15-20 minutes until juices run clear when chicken is pierced and veggies are cooked thru. Serve family-style on platter.
For the ginger syrup::
In a medium saucepan over high heat, combine sugar, ginger and water and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until syrupy and reduced by half, about 40 to 45 minutes. Strain ginger pieces out and reserve syrup.
(Trick: toss dried ginger in sugar, bake at 200 degrees until dried thru, about 4 hours and voila-ginger candy)
