Green Chilli Chicken


I have tasted this dish many, many years ago but somehow it had never crossed my mind to cook this.  But then this morning I saw quite a lot of fresh green chillies in the market place going for a fairly cheap price and  it struck me to replicate this dish ............. yummy!








This dish is not spicy but it does have a bit of 'heat' because of the green chillies which is mild but bearable. I'm sure kids will not encounter much difficulty eating this with rice.

Ingredients
  • 600 gm free-range chicken, skin removed, cut into bite size
  • 5 green chillies, seeded and cut into small pieces
  • 1 small knob young ginger, cut
  • 12 shallots - cut
  • 1.1/2  tsp tau cheong, preserved bean paste
  • 1 tsp each of :  sugar, salt and oyster sauce
  • 1/2  tsp dark soya sauce
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1.1/2  Tbsp oil
Preparation
  1. Wash the chicken pieces and season with a teaspoon salt, set aside.
  2. Blend the green chillies, garlic, shallots and ginger.
  3. Heat up the wok with the oil and saute the blended ingredients.
  4. Add in the tau cheong, dark soya sauce, oyster sauce and sugar, simmer for a while.
  5. Mix in the chicken pieces, stir-fry and add in 3/4  cup water.
  6. Cover and cook on medium low heat till chicken is tender, about 20 mins.
  7. Remove cover and let the gravy dry up a little, test for taste.
  8. Dish up on serving plate and serve hot with rice.

Fantastic Chicken/Chicken in black bean sauce ~ 豆豉鸡

This is a copycat dish from Old Kingdom Chinese restaurant in Surrey Hills, Melbourne.  When we saw 'Fantastic Chicken' dish on the menu, all of us were curious and yes, we agreed to give it a shot.  When the dish was served, there's nothing 'fantastic' about it, it's just chicken fillet fried with black bean sauce.  Nonetheless, it was a delicious and tasty dish to pair with a plate of steaming hot white rice.
