Chinese braised chicken

braisedchicken

I found this recipe from the nobcook site but make some minor adjustment on the ingredients.

Ingredients:

  • Chicken pieces
  • Sesame oil
  • Carrot
  • Shitake mushroom
  • Spring onion (white part)
  • Ginger (slices)
  • Garlic
  • Sugar – 1/2 tsp or less (I don’t like too sweet in the dish)
  • Chinese coriander – for garnishing OR Spring onion – the green part
  • Water

Seasoning:

  • Dark soy sauce
  • Oyster sauce
  • 1/2 tsp – 5-spice powder

Method:

  1. Heat the sesame oil.
  2. Add in the chicken pieces and cook until no longer pick.
  3. Add white part of the spring onion, ginger, garlic and stir fry for 5 minutes.
  4. Add in carrot, seasoning and the water.
  5. Cover the lid and simmer for 5 minutes.
  6. Turn the chicken, then add in 1/2 teaspoon sugar for the sweetness and beautiful glaze.
  7. Then simmer for another 5 minutes.
  8. Add the shitake mushroom at last and mix it well.
  9. Cook for another 2-3 minutes.
  10. Turn-off the fire and garnish with Chinese coriander or green part of the spring onion.

You can always add something extra inside this dish to make it a little colorful.
