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!

I have not tried this combination before but I can sense it is very delicious (since I enjoy Mui Choy with Braised Pork Belly).

What a quick and delicious idea. I am a big fan of preserved vegs, but it's hard to find a good one isn't it?

Mui Choy with chicken is totally a new combination that I've heard so far. Normally I braise mui choy with pork belly and garlic. :P
