Fried Chicken With Sweet Dark Soy Sauce

This chicken dish looks very appetising and easy to prepare in a local food magazine.  Since the weather is getting quite unbearable, cooking a simple dish is best solution instead of 'sweating' in the kitchen with numerous dishes.  I served this dish with EZ Boiled Cubed Potatoes and another simple mixed vegetable salad [see this post].  All these make a yummy weekend meal at home, still better than 'dressing up' and eating outside....hehehe!
Recipe Source - Yum Yum Magazine No. 77 with slight modifications
[serves 3-4]
3 chicken thighs - deboned [keep or discard the skin] - cut bite size pieces
1 tbsp oil 
1 big onion - sliced
1 red chilli - sliced
some spring onions
50 ml water
2 tbsp dark soy sauce [can used sweet dark soy sauce and omit the sugar]
2 tbsp tomato sauce
1-2 tsp sugar to taste
1 tsp salt to taste
  1. Marinate chicken pieces with some salt, sesame oil and cornflour [can prepare this and refrigerate until required].
  2. Heat oil in wok, pan fry chicken pieces until slightly crispy and golden.
  3. Add in seasonings, onions and chillies.
  4. Stir fry over high heat for a few minutes until meat pieces are cooked.
  5. Pour in water and bring to boil [longer time if you prefer the gravy to be thicker].  Add in spring onions.
  6. Dish out and serve immediately with mixed vegetable salad.

This is similar to the Malay Ayam Masak Kicap. I have been wanting to try but somehow never got round to it. Looks delicious!

yummy yummy, hungry looking at your dish. I think I can finish a bowl of rice only with the gravy!

Hi Phong Hong, these days I just love to cook easy to prepare dishes, but surprisingly it's really appetising with rice. Should be similar if you use the sweet dark soy sauce [kicap manis].

Hi Jozelyn, best to get ready the rice on a big plate, then scoop this over it, hmmmmmmm.....
