Ginger Chicken

I assumed every cook knows how to make this easy and delicious dish. I learned how to make this because my mom used to cook this for us when we were children. It is like a comfort food and the house smells great when this is cooking.
This dish is also good for lady in confinement because it uses a lot of gingers and sesame oil.
Featuring one of my home cook dishes.
Ingredients:
~2 skinless and boneless chicken breasts, cut into pieces. (Marinate it with a little soy sauce, dark soy sauce and cornstarch for at least 2 hours)
~2 inches of ginger, juliened (you won't eat it if it's in big pieces). Eat your ginger, it's good for you! :P
~1/2 onion, sliced
~Sugar to taste, about 1 tsp.
Seasonings:
Soy sauce (about one round on the wok), dark soy sauce (about 1 tsp.), sesame oil (about 2 tsp.) and about 1/4 cup of water.

Method:
1. Heat up a wok, when smoking, add in some cooking oil. Add in the gingers, give it a quick stir to release the fragrant. Then, add in the chicken pieces. Stir-fry well until chicken is almost cooked. Add in the onion, mix it around and add 1/4 cup of water and let it simmer.
2. Season to taste with some soy sauce, dark soy sauce, sugar and let it simmer a bit. Switch the stove off and add in some sesame oil. Quick stir and serve on a plate.

Note: For confinement, use sesame oil to cook the ginger and chicken.  Also add wood ear fungus for iron.
