Chiang Mai Peppery Chicken

In life, I believe everything has a time for it.   After this and that commitments and duties have been attended to and over, it's time again for good, yummy food for the family to feast on.
This is quite a simple and easy dish to prepare yet tasty and appetising.  You can add all the peppercorns if you like it 'hot'.  The gravy and chicken is so good with rice.
original recipe from Philip Yoong's book Nyonya Deli with slight modifications
[serves 4]
3 chicken thighs [about 500 gms] - cut bite size pieces [I used chicken thighs and wings]
1 red chilli - sliced
1 green chilli - sliced [I used 2 small green chilli]
4 tbsp chopped coriander roots
2 tbsp chopped garlic
1 tbsp ground white peppercorns [I used 2 tsp white pepper]
100 - 150 ml water
1 tbsp oil
Marinade/Seasoning [I used it to marinate the chicken]
1 tbsp oyster sauce
1 tbsp fish sauce
2 tsp dark soy sauce
1 tsp sugar
  1. Marinate chicken with seasoning for at least 2 hours or overnight.
  2. Heat oil, saute chopped coriander roots and garlic until aromatic.  Add in the chillies and pepper.
  3. Fry for 1-2 seconds.  Add in the chicken.  Stir fry until chicken is firm and fragrant.
  4. Add in water, bring to boil, lower heat to simmer until chicken is cooked and gravy is thickened.
  5. Dish out to serve immediately with rice.

Kimmy, this dish uses a lot of peppercorns! And topped with chilli it will sure makes us sweat! Sounds like a very fragrant and delicious dish that goes well with white rice.

Hi Kimmy,
A delicious dish! Must be very fragrant and flavourful. This calls for two plates of rice!
Thanks for sharing with CYB!

Hi Phong Hong, I bet you will, that's why I used less cos' my niece definitely can't it.

Kimmy said...

Hi Joyce, we enjoyed it very much with 2 bowls of rice, hehehe! Once a while it's okay otherwise we'll overeat.

you managed to get such a big piece of corainder roots! all my corainder roots that i got recently were all tiny ones. I'm sure this is one tasty and flavourful chicken dish! Thx for your entry again!

Kimmy said...

Hi Lena, think it's the season. The vegetable seller allows me to pick the ones with longer and bigger roots. It's also FOC, hehehe! Good dish with rice.

I didn't eat this dish when I was in Chiang Mai 2 years to try cooking it now that you are sharing your recipe....look yummy!

Kimmy said...

Hi Jeannie, I didn't know this is considered a Thai dish until I saw it in the book. With rice and a leafy green salad will make a complete meal.
