Today menu is an easy to cook chicken stew. I promise it is a no fail recipe. What we need: any meat but I prefer to use chicken wings; wash and peel the potatoes and cut half; slices of tomato; grate/chop the garlic, shallots and 2 slices of ginger. We also need 3 table-spoon of sweet soya sauce if you have it, otherwise use a table-spoon of dark soy sauce and add brown sugar/palm sugar; and half tea-spoon of nutmeg powder. I used 8 pieces of chicken wing and 6 small potatoes for this stew. It served four people.

On the pre-heat oil wok, stir fry the garlic, shallots and ginger till they all fragrance or slightly brown. Add the nutmeg and chicken. Stir fry them for a few minutes before adding 300 ml water. Let it boil and add the sweet sauce and seasoning to your taste. Simmer them for half an hour to forty five minutes and toss in the tomato. Let it simmer again until all the potatoes are soft and the chicken are cooked. We usually use beef for this stew but since my daughter has braces on, I just used softer meat instead. Happy Saturday!
