Wow, this is such a childhood favourite of mine. This simple and homey dish is rare on restaurant menus but has remained a favourite of mine since forever! As we grow older, simple dishes like this are just so comforting and of course delicious. Chicken is simply cooked in a concoction of soy sauce with potatoes. This is great served with rice but of course, rather sinful considering the amount of carbs present but oh well!
This post is under my Yuen Chun Recipes.
1/2 chicken or use 4 chicken thighs, cut up (marinate with 1 tablespoon corn flour for about 1 hour placed covered in the fridge)
3 potatoes, sliced and soaked in salted water for about 1 hour (crunchier)
6 cloves garlic, chopped
3 tablespoons thick caramel sauce (Yuen Chun's)
1 tablespoon light soy sauce (Yuen Chun's)
1/2 cup water
Firstly, heat up wok till almost smoking. Add 3 tablespoons cooking oil and swirl to coat. Turn heat to low.
Add garlic and potatoes and fry until fragrant. Add in chicken and fry briskly to mix ingredients together. Turn heat to high and add in the soy sauces. Stir to coat. Add water. Bring to a boil and cover on medium heat until chicken is cooked. Do a taste test and add more soy sauce if desired.
