This is another of my favourite dish.  We always cook a big pot and eat this for both lunch and dinner.  Hehe.

It makes quite a well-balanced dish for children as well as there is chicken, potato and carrot, an all-in-one solution if mummy feels lazy! 😛

Ingredients (Serves 4 adults):

  • 200 g boneless chicken fillet, cut into bite-size pieces
  • 2 medium sized potatoes, peeled and diced
  • 1 small carrot, peeled and diced
  • 1 tablespoon garlic, finely chopped
  • Half a cup of water
  • 1 tablespoon light soy sauce
  • Cooking oil
  • Dash of ground pepper

For chicken marinade, you will need:

  • 1 tablespoon oyster sauce
  • 1 teaspoon dark soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon sesame sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/3 teaspoon salt
  • Dash of ground pepper


Step 1:   Mix ingredients for chicken marinade in a mixing bowl.  Put in the diced chicken fillet and mix well.  Allow it to marinate for 1 – 2 hours.  This is how it should look.

You can leave it to marinate overnight too.  Remember to cover it with plastic wrap and keep it in the chiller.

Step 2:  Heat up a wok or pan with cooking oil.  Fry the potato and carrot cubes till they are cooked.  Remove and set aside.

Step 3:  Remove the excess cooking oil, leaving about 2 tablespoons in the wok for the next step.

Step 4:  Put in chopped garlic and when it starts to brown, add in the marinated chicken fillet cubes.  Stir-fry till cooked.

Step 5:  Transfer back the potato and carrot cubes, add in water and light soy sauce and stir-fry for another minute.

Step 6:  Turn down the heat a little and let the stew simmer for 1-2 minutes.  Add in a dash of pepper, mix the combo well for the last time and serve.

Just a few steps and you are done, isn’t it easy?

Of course, not forgetting to set aside some for my lunch box too.
