Chicken Stew


Chicken Stew


Ingredients:

  • 3 chicken thighs (skin removed, chopped)
  • 1 carrot (cut into chunks)
  • 1 big potato (cut into chunks)
  • 1 small red onion (sliced)
  • 1 clove garlic (minced)
  • 1-2 cloves shallot (sliced finely)
  • ground white pepper
  • 1 tsp chicken Bovril
  • 300-400ml water/ stock (or enough to cover the ingredients)
  • 1-2T unsalted butter
  • 1 can button mushrooms or fresh white button mushrooms (optional - I didn't add these today as there was too much food already!)
Marinade for chicken:
  • about 2T Lee Kum Kee chicken marinade
  • about 1T oyster sauce
  • 1tsp sugar
  • sesame oil
  • ground black pepper
Method:
  1. Clean the chicken and remove all visible fats.
  2. Marinate the chicken overnight or at least for a few hours.
  3. Melt the butter in a wok.
  4. Fry the onions till limp. Add in the garlic and shallots and fry till fragrant.
  5. Add in the chicken and fry for awhile.
  6. Add in the carrot and potato chunks.
  7. Add the water/stock (enough to cover the ingredients).
  8. Bring the stew to a boil then simmer on low heat for 45min.
  9. At the 20min mark, take out half the amount of potatoes and mash them then return them to the stew - optional step: only if you like the stew more pasty
  10. Add the pepper and the chicken Bovril.
  11. Continue to simmer the stew for another 25min or until stew thickens.
  12. Dish and serve hot.
I'm a fan of chicken stew and my hubby says this dish just grows on him... the more he eats it, the more he finds it flavourful! Do try it! :)

And to make this a one-pot dish, just add some of your favourite greens and there you have it! My personal favourite vegetable to add to this stew is the Chinese cabbage (wongbok). 娃娃菜 is another alternative :) (Aside: Here's a recipe using 娃娃菜). A note about adding veggies to this dish: you'd probably want a less pasty dish with veggies around, so just don't go mash the potatoes and you may need a bit more water/stock. :)

For toddler's consumption:
  • Simply cut the chicken, potatoes and carrots into smaller pieces!
