I got a bit of a mommy-chef block today. started off the morning not knowing what to cook for the kids. soup again? steam again? boring. and then I thought..masak kicap ok kot. I didnt fry the chicken first like we usually should. i boiled the chicken to tenderize it and used the stock for the kuah. or gravy. Lemme share this recipe with you guys although i know...who doesnt know how to cook masak kicap? hehe
So here are my ingredients:
2 pc of chicken thigh
2 pc button mushrooms
3 baby carrots
1 red onion (sliced thinly)
2 cloves of garlic (sliced thinly)
1 inch ginger (ketuk)
1 teaspoon oyster sauce
Season-all by mcCormick (optional)
Air asam jawa. sikit je.
So while u're preparing the ingredients, boil the chicken.
Pour a liitle bit of oil in a little pot. fry the garlic, onion and ginger. Put in chicken, mushroom n carrots, stir fry.
Add in the oyster sauce, kikkoman soyasauce, season all and pepper. pour in the chicken stock from earlier, add in more water if you want more gravy. I usually do that cuz my kids don't eat their rice dry. Simmer up and you're done:)
Oh yeah..I do use soyasauce and oyster sauce because my kids are both above 1yo. If you don't fancy both the ingredients then just wait til theyre older then:)
Thanks for reading!
