chicken in oyster sauce

category: main dish
servings: 4

three weeks ago i was not feeling well... makuy and i were not really feeling well but i still managed to cook a dish. hehehe...

i've been into oyster sauce lately. hehehe... it's very obvious right? i just wanted to try it with my cooking. i've never imagined how helpful oyster sauce is to cooking. since i am sick, i needed to prepare a food that's easy toc ook and fast and at the same time tasty also... so, there, oyster sauce comes in. great help. hehehe...

in boiling the chicken, instead of sprite you can use 7-up; or just the simply boil in water with salt, pepper and a little vinegar. as for the hot sauce, it can be omitted if you don't like it with a little kick. you can also add mote hot sauce if you want it more spicy. i just have 1 tsp. so that i can take the spiciness and at the same time kim likes it. i used tabaso hot pepper sauce... mmmm... very nice.

so, here's my version of aying's chicken in oyster sauce.

2 pcs. chicken breast, cut into serving portion
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 small onion, sliced
1 tbsp. ginger, minced
1/4 cup oyster sauce
salt and freshly ground pepper
1 tsp. hot pepper
1 can sprite
1 tbsp. butter
2 tbsp. cooking oil
1 medium potato, cut into wedges, season with salt and deep-fried

boil chicken breast in sprite until liquid evaporates.

add cooking oil and butter. then add garlic, ginger and onion. cook chicken until a little bit browned.

add the oyster sauce and hot sauce. stir until chicken are fully coated with sauce.

add half of the deep-fried potato wedges to the pan and mix again until well coated.

place in a serving dish and add the remaining potato wedges. sprinkle with some spring onions on top.

wala... done in minutes! hehehe...
