FRAGRANT OYSTER SAUCE CHICKEN

A very easy, simple chicken dish to prepare without compromising its tastes.  I have prepared this dish several times but have yet to share it here with all.
The preparation is easy with only a few steps to follow.  It's delicious and tasty with rice.  Definitely  fragrant with the nice aroma of oyster sauce well blended with ginger and spring onions.
Ingredients
2-3 deboned chicken thighs with skin but fats removed - cut bite size pieces
2-3 tbsp shredded ginger
1-2 stalks spring onions - cut sections
Marinade
2-3 tbsp oyster sauce
1 tbsp light soy sauce
1 tbsp shaoxing wine
1/2 tsp dark soy sauce for colour
1 tsp each of sugar and sesame seed oil
1/4 tsp pepper
1 tbsp cornstarch + 1 tbsp water
  1. Prepare the chicken pieces as above.  Mix in marinade and leave in fridge for at least an hour [can prepare ahead].
  2. Heat some oil in a non stick pan/wok, pan fry the chicken pieces until firm, brown and fragrant.
  3. Push aside, put in the ginger and spring onions.  Continue stirring until chicken is cooked through.  Drizzle in some water.  Bring to boil.
  4. Dish up to serve immediately.

Hi Kimmy! This is quite similar to what my mum loves to whip up when we were kids. It's still a family favorite until now.

Hi Phong Hong, great to hear from you. Haven't been active in blogging these days due to various commitments. Moreover, my hubby is having dinner with my mother in-law most days of the week. So I prepare mostly One Dish Meal like this more often with salad or fried vege. This will suffice as a complete meal. Used to prepare this kind of dish before but without marinating the meat. This is more flavourful and quick cook. Very fragrant and I just love the ginger and spring onions.
