This is a simple and quick Chinese recipe for braised chicken which is easily adaptable to suit your preference. The seasonings like soy sauces and oyster sauce are staples in a Chinese kitchen. The savory braising sauce goes incredibly well with white rice. This dish is so high on taste and low on effort that it has become one of my family’s favourite home-cooked Chinese dishes.

    I also did something very similar last weekend with fatty stewing beef.

    This dish looks absolutely fantastic, my mouth is watering! It sounds so nice I’d love to try it sometime, but a few of the ingredients I’ve never seen before. Hmmm. *ponders if I can leave them out*

    Your photos are such high class, you don’t know how jealous I am of your food photographing/arranging skills. O____O In a good way of course. ;)

      You are too humble girl! You know I’m a huge fan of your photography … so thank you so much for your encouragement!

      I always wonder if Chinese food that looks so dark and “messy” might put off those not used to our cuisine, so I’m really glad you think it looks delicious :)

    I’m going to try out this dish, just a few questions before I start. Can I replace the chicken with chicken breast or boneless chicken meat? Also for rock sugar cubes can it be replaced by normal sugar?
    Its my 2nd time trying out to cook using your receipe! What’s bruised garlic?
