Soy sauce chicken 酱油鸡


Soy sauce chicken made easy with store bought soy sauce marinade.

I used the whole bottle for 5 skin-on, bone-in chicken thighs. I added 1 bowl of water to the pot, together with the chicken thighs, 2 cloves of garlic, 5 slices of ginger and 8 dried mushrooms.

Bring it to a boil then simmer on low for half an hour. The sauce is on a sweeter side so I added 1tbs of soy sauce and 1 tsp of salt to balance the sweetness. Add in frozen tofu and hard boiled eggs and simmer for another 15-20 mins.

Skim off the chicken fat on the surface and it’s ready to serve! The savory sauce is great with egg noodles too.

Meals prepping for the week 2


Theme of the week: Korean! I have some leftover hot pepper sauce mix from the bibimbap that we had last weekend, so let’s make spicy hot pepper chicken and kimchi chicken.

Prepare and chop up all the needed ingredients. A quarter of a cabbage, 1 carrots, 1 onion, 3 cloves of garlics, 3-4 slices of ginger, 1 bowl of kimchi, chili powder (optional for added spiciness), hot pepper sauce and of course, 6 chopped boneless chicken tights. I’m going to make a bigger batch of kimchi chicken, as it can transform into kimchi stew later of the week.

Spicy Korean Chicken
In a big pot, add in 1 quarter of the chopped chicken, carrots, cabbages, half of the chopped garlics and hot pepper sauce (+ chili powder for extra kick). On medium heat, stir well and cook uncovered for 15-20 mins.


Kimchi Chicken
In a large pot, add in the rest of the chopped chicken, garlics, ginger,onions, kimchi and a ts of sugar. Over medium heat, stir well and cook covered for 15-20 mins.


Garnish with chopped spring onions or green chillies. Best serve with a bowl of hot steamy rice. YUM!

Update: Kimchi Chicken Stew
In a pot, add in the leftover kimchi chicken, cubed half a firm tofu, spring onions, chicken stocks and bring to a boil. Once boiled, crack in an egg and ready to serve. Taste for seasoning, I added another ts of fish sauce.
