Braised Chicken with Mui Choy
This was actually a remake of a leftover mui choy (preserved veggie). My hubby ordered a "mui choy gau yook" from a friend and we finished all the "gau yook" (5 layers pork/ fatty pork) and left with lots of mui choy. It was too salty and the spices were a bit too strong for my taste. Our friends suggested me to make soup with the mui choy but I thought I would make a chicken dish with it instead.
All I did is chopped some drumsticks, added in a little oil in a pot and gave the mui choy some quick stirs. Then, added in the chicken, stir a little. Added in water to cover half of the chicken and a tablespoon of dark soy sauce and let it simmered in low heat for an hour. Lastly added in a little sugar. It turned out to be a delicious chicken dish. What a great use of the leftover mui choy!
