Soy Braised Chicken


  • 2 large chicken thighs - skinless bone in, cut into medium sized pieces
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced shallots
  • 1 tbsp thinly sliced garlic
  • 2 tbsp thinly sliced ginger
  • 2 star anise
  • 4 dried red chilies
  • 1/4 cup dark soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp rice wine vinegar
  • 1/2 cup chicken stock
  • Oil for sauteing
  • salt to taste
  • freshly ground black pepper to taste

Method(How to Cook)

Preheat the oven to 350F

In a large saute pan, heat the oil and when heated, add the chicken pieces, season well with salt and pepper and saute till the chicken pieces are browned on all sides. Remove from the pan and place it in a oven proof dish or casserole with a tight fitting lid.

Add the sliced shallots to the same pan, and saute till soft. Add the star anise, red chilies, garlic and ginger and saute for 2 minutes. Add the soy sauce, rice wine vinegar and chicken stock to the pan and bring to a boil. Taste and add salt, since soy sauce already has salt, you wouldn’t need much.

Pour this liquid mixture over the chicken pieces in the casserole. Cover with a tight lid and place in the oven. Cook for 50-60 minutes.

Serve warm with rice.
