braised chicken with potatoes

made a braised chicken with potatoes for teban gardens community breakfast this morning on 9.2.2018.^^

this my 52nd 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.

braised chicken with potatoes

been doing variations of this several times recently, as it is easy to do, and really tasty & flavourful.

i had 2kg chicken thighs & 1 kg wingsticks marinated with 2tbsp fish sauce, 2tbsp sesame oil & 1tbsp corn flour overnight in the fridge.

this morning, i fried 1 cinnamon stick, 4 bay leaves, 4 star anise, 1 bulb of garlic cloves, 2cm sliced ginger & 1 cut chilli padi…then added the chicken & fried to get the flavours to all parts. then i added 80ml of tai hwa chicken braising sauce.

then covered & simmered for 5 mins, and the removed the thighs leaving the wingsticks.

then i added 5 cut potatoes, and cooked for another 5mins. pressed the potatoes to check it was just cooked.
