Directions

  1. Marinate the chicken

    • In a large mixing bowl, combine chicken, ginger, garlic, shallot, salt, 1 tsp sugar, chicken stock, fish sauce and pepper. 

    • Mix well and leave to marinate for at least 30 minutes.



  2. Stir-fry the chicken

    • In a large saucepan or a wok, heat 1 tbsp vegetable oil and sprinkle 2 tbsp sugar over the base. 

    • Melt the sugar under medium heat until it caramelized (dark amber color). 

    • Add the marinated chicken and stir-fry on high heat for about 5 – 10 minutes, until chicken is no longer pink.

    • Add water/chicken broth/coconut juice/coconut soda. Bring to a boil.

    • Skim off the foam and some of the floating fat. Lower heat to medium and cook for 30 minutes, uncovered, until the sauce reduces by one third.
