Braised Chicken with Yam

Sokehah Cheah | 11:22 AM | | |



I've a soft spot for yam and can't resist buying them from the market whenever I see fresh ones. Came up with this dish which I can easily have it on its own ....... I'll eat the yam first, the chicken is secondary.




Recipe for Braised Chicken with Yam

Ingredients
    • 1 kg free range chicken, skin removed and cut into bite size
    • 800 gm  (net weight) yam/taro, sliced or cubed
    • 1 onion, cut into wedges
    • 1 tsp light soya sauce
    • 1/4  tsp sugar
    • 3 cups water or more
    • Pepper
    • Salt to taste
    Method
    1. Marinate the chicken pieces with some salt and pepper.  Set aside for an hour or more.
    2. In a wok, saute the onion wedges with some oil, toss in the chicken pieces.  Fry till fragrant.
    3. Add in the yam slices as well and continue to stir-fry.
    4. Add in enough water to cover the chicken and yam.  Add in the light soya sauce and sugar.  Bring to the boil, cover and lower heat to simmer.  Cook till the chicken is tender and the yam, soft and creamy.
    5. Fine tune to desired taste, dish out onto serving plate.
    6. Serve hot with rice.

  6. Hi Cheah, we love yam too. My hubby always talk about the 'Ark Or' [Duck with Yam]. Maybe I should try this dish for him. Have you tried the 'Ark Or' before?

    1. Sorry to hear of your gastric problem. Yes when you have this problem, you'll need to stay away from yam, ubi and glutinous rice. Hope it'll be remedied in due course.
