Braised Chicken with Shiitake Mushroom 香菇焖鸡

Braised chicken always sounds complicated but actually it's easy to prepare especially with a given recipe like what I have shared this blog post. Just add all the seasoning, let it marinate then cook.

From day 1 I cooked this dish, I never refer to any recipe, I just poured the sauce, add everything a dash and a few dash. Tell you what, it turned out awesome! And from that day onwards, this dish has become one of our favourite comfort food. 

What I struggled the most was to draft out this recipe with exact measurement. The reason?.......because I never measure my ingredients! ‘凭感觉烹饪’ 

So whoever came across this recipe, do appreciate the author's effort and time spent measuring and taking down the amount for you. ;) 

This dish is quite versatile. Besides adding Shiitake mushrooms, you may try using Enoki mushrooms or adding black fungus. It taste awesome too!

Replaced Shiitake mushrooms with Enoki mushrooms and black fungus.
More gravy for the boy to eat with rice.

I normally served this dish with steamed egg and rice.
