Soy Sauce Chicken with Potatoes

~ Posted on Wednesday, February 12, 2014 at 7:53 AM ~

For this post, I am sharing my next food recipe, a very cherished dish that I used to love eating! I remember back when my mum was still alive, she used to make this dish very often, and I can just eat plates (yes, I said plates!) of rice with the sauce and just plain potatoes! Crazy huh?! Hubby taught me how to make this dish a few weeks back but being the smart a$$ I always am, I did not write down the recipes and step by steps too! *smack head*

So, as a disclaimer, I take full responsibilities of the recipe here which I definitely can't give you exact measurements and proper steps to cook as well. No kidding! I just go by the live and let live motto and cook away!!!! (and hopefully nobody in the family had food poisoning after having this dish hehehehe) Without further ado, here goes my post on Soy Sauce Chicken with Potatoes:


** Garlic - 1 clove chopped finely
* Ginger - few slices will do
* Potatoes - boiled and cubed earlier
* Oil for frying chicken - about 2 ~ 3 tbsp
* Vegetable broth - about 1 cup
* Soy sauce - about 5-6 tbsp
* Chicken meat - cut into bite sized
* Salt & pepper to taste
* Optional: You can put in Chinese rice wine as well, carrots sliced
* Put in the oil, fry the ginger slices for a minute or two.
* Fry the garlic next until you smell nice garlic-ky smell from the frying pan. Be careful not to overfry them as it will give bitter taste then.
* Fry the potatoes and set aside.
 * Fry the chicken meat for until they turned golden brown in color.
* Pour in the vegetable broth and soy sauce mixture.
* Cover up the frying pan and let the dish simmer and cook for about 30 minutes.
* On and off, taste the sauce to check whether the taste is to your liking. Add in salt and pepper if needed.
* To make more sauce, add more vegetable broth and soy sauce mixture.

I get an A+++ for this dish! Woweeeee!! There's definitely room for improvements for this dish. I gotta experiment how to make it like how my mum cooked hers. Until then, A+++ is not bad huh?
