  2. Heat up a pan with oil until hot. Fry the marinated chicken until golden. Remove and drain on a kitchen paper. Using one tablespoon of frying oil to stir-fry ginger, scallion and garlic until aromatic. Pour in balsamic vinegar and fried chicken, drizzle in the rest of rice wine and maggi sauce.
