For some reasons, we sometimes end up with potato at the pantry without knowing what to do with them until they threaten to become a plant… so to prevent history repeating itself, I came up with a chicken dish that make use of potato.

Without much creativity, I call it Stewed Chicken with Potato & Fermented Tofu dish. Cos those are basically the ingredients you need (garlic doesn’t really count, right?).

four ingredients make a pot of stewed chicken

The dish is quite easy to make, if not takes a little bit of time to stew it to perfection. Without further nonsense, let’s get to the point.


  • 2 quarter chicken (leg part, you can use any other bits), cut into bite size
  • 2 tablespoon fermented tofu
  • 5-8 bulbs of garlic, crushed
  • 1 potato, thin slices

Cooking instructions:

  • heat up clay pot with some cooking oil (1 tablespoon is enough)
  • start searing chicken until all sides are brown
  • add fermented tofu and keep stirring
  • add potato slices
  • add water until all ingredients covered
  • low heat, simmer for 30 mins

Result is a pretty warm, homey type of chicken dish suitable to go with steamed rice with a condiment of cilipadi and soya sauce. Adding some onion will also work for this dish as well, try it.

  1. I love stewed chicken with potatoes but with soy sauce, never had fermented tofu with it. Perhaps I should give it a try, looks good!

  2. No sugar is needed to adjust the flavour? As the Foo Yu is quite salty. o.O

    • Choi Yen: ohhh this is foo yu made by my mom so it’s actually not very salty. I usually don’t use much sugar for my cooking.

  3. You’re very adapt at chopping chicken! Me, don’t know how to chop chicken…will end up with crushed bones! >_< I get chicken all chopped up already by the chicken seller. Wah, not salty homemade fuo yue is the best lah! 😉
