Weekend Menu #88: Kicap chicken

I learnt this recipe from The Malaysian Women's Weekly. The recipe was Black Soy Chicken (Ayam masak kicap).

I found the taste was good and in my 2nd attempt, I did make a slight adjustment to the recipe to suit my taste.

The original recipe called for sliced chicken breast but I have tried few times using chicken thighs. 

400g sliced chicken breast
Black soy sauce
Cooking oil
1 big onion sliced
3 minced garlic
Tomato sauce

1. Marinate the chicken with 1 tbsp soy sauce and 1 tsp salt.
2. Heat up about 4 tbsp cooking oil in a wok. Toss in garlic and onion and saute till fragrant.
3. Add in the chicken and stir fry for 5 minutes.
4. Add in 2 tbsp tomato sauce, salt and sugar to taste. Add in about 50ml water and let it simmer.
5. Dish out and garnish with parsley.

Next time, throw in some potatoes. Very nice! Can make some stewed eggs too.

Chicken thighs are definitely better than chicken breasts :)

Kicap ayam! I like , especially while it’s hot !

I prefer chicken thigh too. I dont like chicken breast as the meat can be very dry and tough.

I no longer buy magazines, but when I was younger my mother would always try out new recipes from the Woman's Weekly. She'd have pages of them torn out and kept in stacks.
