wine chicken 黄焖鸡 with potatoes & carrots for teban gardens 

made wine chicken 黄焖鸡 for teban gardens community breakfast this morning on 15.12.2017. ^^

this my 48th friday breakfast community meal dish at teban gardens community service centre.

i first started doing a community meal dish for teban gardens CSC on 8.1.2016.

the centre was started in 2002 after much effort & challenge by our RI friend who is a pastor of pasir panjang hill brethren church (pphbc) which owns & runs the CSC.

2kg boneless chicken thighs 

i bought 2kg frozen boneless chicken thigh from sheng shiong, defrosted, cut & cleaned with salt & placed in a colander in the fridge to dry the evening before.

this morning, i woke up earlier to marinate the chicken – 2tbsp fish sauce, 2tbsp light soy sauce, 2tbsp sesame sauce, 2tbsp oyster sauce, 2 tbsp corn flour & 4tbsp shaoxing wine, marinated about 1hr.

light braised chicken thighs 

i fried the chicken pieces in a hot pan with sliced ginger, cut chilli padi, and chopped garlic. then added the marinade, covered & braised lightly 焖..

there is a lot of liquids in the chicken so no need to add water, but watch & act accordingly.

chicken should not be overcooked..about 6-8mins sufficient for smooth, succulent chicken dish.

carrots, onions & potatoes 

i prepared the carrots, onions & potatoes – 2 large carrots, 2 large onions, 6 medium potatoes.

cooking carrots, onions & potatoes 

fried carrots & onions first then added potatoes & liquid from draining the chicken.

make the correct texture for potatoes, just break when pressed & not mushy. liquids should be reduced to give an intense tasty sauce.
