CNY is around the corner, so much to buy and so many things to do for this year. Best to try simple easy recipes during pre-CNY days.
Just this with a simple stir fry vegetable dish would suffice for a complete meal for the family.
The chicken thighs need not be marinated before cooking as the seasoning is sufficient. Tastes savoury sweet and fragrant. Delicious to serve with steaming hot rice and a vegetable dish, similar to the set meals you get at the food outlets.
4 chicken thighs - deboned with skin intact
1 stalk spring onion - cut sections [keep some to add last]
1 red chilli - cut strips [keep some to add last]
1 yellow onion - peeled and sliced
1 tbsp oil
250 ml water
2 tbsp light soy sauce
1 tbsp cooking wine
