Today, CY & I spent the whole day in the office. We did a number of crucial and important changes to our office, hence my day off was burnt but it’s worth it. We are still in the office right now and my stomach keeps on reminding me of my meal time (though I just had my dinner!), plus the off-tune singing not far away served as a little ‘entertainment’ in the office. Everywhere seems to be, still, in CNY mood, or at least that’s the case in my neighborhood.
We had our dinner in the kopitiam not long ago. The meal was simple, steamed fish and mixed vegetables as usual. But I can’t help to think of the Braised Chicken we had 2 weeks before the CNY. This is truly a brainless dish, just throw everything inside the pressure cooker to do the magic.
I wonder if anyone of you still thinks that a pressure cooker is not worth the investment. I guess if you think of this way, you might still exist in the past century, even my sister got one in KL and hers is an electronic pressure cooker! More powerful than mine! I am speechless.
Anyway, the point is, you should get one.
1 Cinnamon stick
1 Star anise
20g Blue ginger
30g onions, sliced
2 tbs soy sauce
2 tbs dark soy sauce
2 tbs sugar
1 whole chicken, cut
Shitake mushrooms, soaked
Pressure cooker method
Marinate chicken with sauce for at least 20 mins.
Fry ingredients till fragrant, add in chicken and sauce, add in 1 cup of water. Boil and cover tightly, cook for 25 mins.
After that, release pressure, take out chicken, and thicken the sauce.
Serve with rice or like what I did, serve with noodle and tomato as side dish.
