Chilli Jam Chicken

When it comes to prepare dishes for our daily meals I am always on the move in searching or creating quick and easy dish that can be served within an hour. With a kid at home as well as busying with work and household chores sometime I would also need some help from those instant sauce to add flavour to the dishes. Like example; today I am using the "Dancing Chef - Special Sauce" which is a closer version in term of taste to the western "chilli jam". And this sauce actually goes well either meat and seafood too.


(serves: 2 | Preparation: 10 minutes | Cooking: 15 minutes)

4 Chicken Thigh Fillets
1 Bunch Bok Choy
1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
1 Pack of Dancing Chef Special Sauce

1. Tim fat off from the chicken thighs, lightly marinated them with 1/2 tablespoon of cooking wine and corn flour.

2. Heat Oil in a frying pan on high heat. Cook chicken for 2 minutes each side or until golden.

3. Transfer chicken fillets into baking dish (or you can use disposal aluminum foil tray), spread dancing chef special sauce evenly on top of the chicken fillets.

4. Bake in oven toaster for about 10 minutes or until cooked through. (you can also pop them into preheated 200 Degree Celsius oven for 5 minutes)

5. Steamed or blanched bok choy in lightly salted water with oil until wilted. Serve at the side together with the chicken. (for a better taste, you can drizzle some sesame oil on the cooked bok choy)

If you cannot find any "Dancing Chef - Special Sauce" in your area/country you can always replaced it with any brand(or homemade) "Chilli Jam" that you can get from the supermarkets.There are pretty easy to follow recipes on making chilli jam which you might be keen to take a look too :-
