I really love to cook. And especially so when I can create delicious dishes with simple ingredients to infuse flavours together and bring about sensational tastes. Mum wanted to eat Soya Sauce Chicken yesterday, and mostly from what I whip up I firstly imagine the end flavours to achieve. And to my good fortune, everything turned out dee-licious.

Simple and quick, the recipe is easily achieved within 50 minutes (and 90% of that is the cooking time).

  • ground white pepper
  • 1 whole garlic, leave the skin on.
  1. In a large bowl, mix in the chicken pieces,sugar, dark and light soya sauce, sesame oil. Dash into about two to three shakes of ground white pepper.
  2. Add water to cooking pot, start the heat.
  3. Thereafter immediately place the pieces of chicken in, followed by the sauce mixture left behind and the whole garlic.
  4. Leave to simmer for 45 minutes adding half cups water when necessary to ensure the liquid does not dry out.
    1. At the 20 minute mark, turn chicken pieces around to ensure an even infusion of sauces on all sides.
