I love to cook this dish for my family because it is healthy and delicious. This is one of my home cook dishes that I think is also one of yours. I think this dish is pretty common in a household that cook every day. The only different is I used skinless and boneless chicken breast instead of the whole cut out chicken. Sharing with you my way of cooking this dish.
1 skinless and boneless chicken breast, sliced and marinated with soy sauce, sweet soy sauce, white pepper and cornstarch.
4 dried bean curd sticks, soaked in warm water until slightly soften, cut into 2 inches length.1 star anise
2 Tbsp. Light soy sauce1 Tbsp. Dark soy sauce
1 1/2 cup Water1 tsp. brown cane sugar (or brown sugar)
1. Heat a saucepan with some oil. Fry chicken until half cooked. Add in star anise. Fry for a little while. Add in bean curd sticks and water.
2. Add in light and dark soy sauce. Let it boil and turn the heat to low, covered and let it simmer for an hour or until the bean curd sticks are completely soften.
3. Add in the cane sugar and give it a stir. Do a taste test to see whether you need to add more salt or sugar. Serve hot.
We really enjoy this dish and I hope you like it too.
