lime chicken in oyster sauce

This was simply an update to my previous post on Chicken in Oyster Sauce. Actually, this is the fourth version of my Chicken in Oyster Sauce, you can view them here, here and here. Hehehe... The difference?... I just marinated the chicken with lime. It's a bit sour because of the lime but I liked it.

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
1-2 pcs. lime
1 tbsp. butter
2 tbsp. cooking oil

Marinate the chicken with lime juice for a few minutes.

In a wok heat olive oil and butter and saute garlic, ginger and onion until aromatic.

Add the marinated chicken (optional: you can include or exclude any remaining juice from the marinade) and cook until a little browned and cooked.

Before putting off the fire, add the oyster sauce. Stir until chicken are fully coated with sauce.

Place in a serving dish and sprinkle with some spring onions on top.
