yay my second recipe for this blog. i'm gonna be doing chestnut chicken with japanese mushroom. it's a really simple dish to make.
*3 chicken legs (chopped)
*25 pcs of chestnut (i was too bored so i counted it)
*8 japanese mushrooms (my mil bought it from singapore, love the thickness)
*i super love mushrooms especially thick ones like this!*
*oyster sauce (the main ingredient)
*light soya sauce & salt (if you prefer more salty taste, i didn't use it for this dish though)
*there's a hidden mickey*
Step 1: Soaked the chestnut and the japanese mushroom for about 8 hours before cooking because if not these two ingredients will be quite hard. after soaking, take a fork to skin out any excess skin which is left on the chestnut.
Step 2: 'pot' fry the chicken thigh with olive oil, frying the chicken thighs help to seal the juices of the chicken.
*fry it till it's slightly golden brown*
Step 3: blanch in water to the pot, then add the chestnut and japanese mushroom.
Step 4: add in oyster sauce. be generous on the amount. i actually added 1/4 bottle of oyster sauce.
Step 5: let it simmer for 2 hours. do not add water because this dish is meant to be saucy not soupy. DONE. ready to be served.
