Soupy Chicken Stew

“Chicken Stew with Assorted Root Vegetables for cold rainy days”

This dish is a variation of a stew served at the Soup Spoon restaurant, where I usually have or pack my soupy lunch during rainy days. It was to avoid walking to lunch to unsheltered places on my heels under the rain.

The Tokyo chicken stew soup is one of their popular choices in the Soup Spoon restaurant. I was not sure why is it called Tokyo chicken stew. Perhaps it has some special ingredients from Japan in it, I was not too sure. However, this is surely a delicious stew in clear soup which resembles the chicken noodle soup served in many Western cuisine restaurants. I was very interested to cook this up on my own at home. To please my family, and to save my bucks, too! read more

Preserved Black Bean Chicken (豆豉鸡)

“An authentic Asian chicken dish that truly whets your appetite.”

This wonderfully aromatic chicken dish is one of my favourite Cantonese dishes. We called it 豆豉鸡 (Dow Xi Gai), in Cantonese. It’s easy on preparation and big on flavour!

Prepare more rice and you may end up double your usual amount this time.

Remember to get the whole preserved black soy bean (豆豉), and NOT the minced soy bean paste (豆瓣酱). It usually comes bottled which already flavoured, some with oil and some with chili, off the shelves. Unless the flavoured whole black bean in bottle is your only option or you actually prefer to have it spicy, cook this chicken dish with original preserved whole bean, which you may try getting it from neighbourhood Chinese provision shops or minimarts. Use of whole black bean reserves the natural black bean flavour in the dish, and you may also get to bite and taste the whole bean. read more
