Chinese braised chicken


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


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


  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.
