Soy sauce chicken is a common homemade dish in Asian culture. It is a simple, quick and fulfilling, yet appetizing dish which most Chinese grew up with. This dish was prepared on a weekly basis through my childhood and teenagers life. I love and grew attached to this dish, and would always ask my mum to prepare this when I went home during the holidays. After all, nothing beats our mum’s cooking right?
[Note: Using Japanese mirin and honey would add some Japanese touch to this dish]
- 6 chicken drumlets
- 1 Japanese leek
- 2 tbs soy sauce
- 4 tbs of cooking wine
- 1 tbs of white vinegar
- Salt and pepper
- Prepare all the ingredients above. You may season the chicken with salt and pepper beforehand.
2. Heat up the pan with some oil and lightly fried the chicken till they turn brown on both sides. This process could take about 5 minutes.
3. Add in the stem of the leek. Slightly saute for a moment. Then, pour in the soy sauce and cooking wine. Mix well and add in vinegar. Saute them till the chicken are well coated with the soy sauce. Close the lid and simmer the chicken for around 7 minutes.
4. Turn the chicken to the other side and continue simmering for around 5 minutes. Remove the lid and stir-fry the chicken until the sauce are well absorbed by the chicken. Serve on a plate and garnish with some spring onions.
This dish is superb to be eaten on a summer’s day. Best eaten with white rice!
