Braised Ginger Chicken with Dried Oysters

When I looked at the picture of this dish in the food magazine, I thought it must be difficult to prepare.  But it wasn't so.  This dish is very easy to prepare yet really tasty and delicious serve with steaming hot rice.  The dried oysters enhanced the flavour, taste and fragrance of this dish.

  2. Add in dried oysters and seasoning.  Give it a good stir.  Add in water.

Looks like a real comforting dish, would love this with a big bowl of rice.

Hi Yen, spread this over rice and some cooked vege will make a complete meal.

I made a similar dish just day before but with dried mushrooms, i will try it with oysters the next time, thanks for sharing :)

Hi Lite Home Bake, yes do try by adding dried oysters, does make a difference. I think dried cuttlefish could be a good substitute too.

Thanks for linking!

Hi Joyce, this dish gives me the confidence to add dried oyster or dried cuttlefish to other meat dishes when braising.

Hi Kimmy! This is a delicious dish. But I find the taste of dried oysters too strong. I'll have to leave it out.

Hi Phong Hong, I had the same thought as you before I tried it. My opinion changed already. Maybe you can try to add just a piece.
