Chicken Savoury Delight

I called this dish Chicken Savoury Delight. Simple and easy to prepare. The kids loves it very much as it has a beautiful gravy to go with their rice. The chicken strips are cooked with the pickled lettuce with a some cooking wine and black soy sauce. The pickled lettuce comes in the can and it need to be well soaked before cooking as it is a bit salty if taken as it is. This pickled lettuce is normally taken with congee aka rice porridge. I have improved the way to consume this pickled lettuce by cooking it with chicken instead, it is real tasty.

All you need :
  • 2 pieces of chicken breast meat - cut into fine strips
  • 1 can of pickled lettuce - soak well and filter with 3-4 times water before cutting
  • some ginger and garlic - chopped
  • 1 Tbs cooking wine
  • 1 Tbs dark soy sauce
  • a little sugar - to taste

Simple Process :

  1. Heat the wok with a little oil and saute the chopped ginger and garlic till aromatic
  2. Add in the chicken meat and pickled lettuce and stir fry, add 1/4 cup water and let it simmer for 15 mins
  3. Add the dark soy sauce, a little sugar and cooking wine and stir mix well and let it simmer for another 5 mins
  4. To thicken the gravy, just add in 1 Tbs cornflour starch
  5. Ready to Serve with steam rice

Enjoy Your Meal! :)
