It’s been a while since I last made a recipe entry to this blog. I’ve recently started cooking again, trying to make it at least once a week, reminding myself there’s a reason why the kitchen was renovated a couple years back.
This very simple soya sauce chicken recipe was taught to me by Haze’s aunt, who cooked for us a couple weeks back. If you get it right, and it’s easy to get it right, the resulting chicken is tender, juicy, and absolutely delightful to go with steamed rice. I recommend having sambal balacan as the accompanying condiment.
chicken, Chinese cooking wine, cooking oil, soya sauce
In this example, I only used two quarter chicken (thighs) because it was only for Haze and myself. The original recipe calls for a whole chicken. Increase the portion of ingredients appropriately.
- 2 x chicken thigh with leg piece
- 1/3 cup Chinese wine (1 cup for whole chicken)
- 1/3 cup cooking oil
- 1/3 cup soya sauce
- 1 teaspoon starch (windmill brand)

- simmer in low fire with lit closed, turn over the chicken every 10 minutes for 40 minutes, add some water if liquid gets too low
- cut the chicken and placed on a plate
- add starch into the remaining sauce and stir for a minute
