[recipe] Braised Chicken - 海参香菇焖鸡翅

Chinese New Year is about a week from now and I am sure everyone is busying with spring clean, baking new year cookies or preparing gift sets and food for your loved ones. In this week post we feature a quick Braised Chicken dish using some auspicious new year ingredients which you might be interested in.

(with sea cucumber, fish maw, mushrooms & etc)

This delicious one-pot meal consists not only chicken but also includes sea cucumber, fish maw, black moss (fatt choy) and some organic products such as white shiitake mushroom and black fungus which I received from Ryan's Grocery.

These dried shiitake mushroom has a mild meaty flavour and it cooks easily in shorter time. As for the black fungus it has a crunchier texture and it's almost odorless from those fresh ones which I often get from supermarket.

(Yield: 4 | Preparation: 15 minutes | Cooking: 25 minutes)

5 chicken wings, trim & halved
300g sea cucumber, cut into 1" thick slices
50g fish maw
6 white shiitake mushrooms
2 cluster of black fungus
1 can baby abalones, optional
1 tablespoon soaked black moss (fatt choy)
a few hard-boiled chicken or quail eggs
1/2 tablespoon of goji berry
1 stalk spring onion, cut into section
3 slices ginger
2 cloves garlic

1 teaspoon light soy sauce
1/2 teaspoon sesame oil
1/2 teaspoon grated ginger juice
1 tablespoon cooking wine
drizzle of dark soy sauce
dash of pepper

1/2 tablespoon oyster sauce
1/4 chicken stock cube
350ml hot water
dash of cooking wine
cornstarch solution

1. Marinate chicken wings with marinade for at least 30 minutes.

2. Soak fish maw in a bowl of hot water for 10 minutes till soften (change water every 5 minutes). Trim into 2" lengths, drain well and set aside.

3. Soaked shiitake mushrooms and black fungus in hot water till soften. Trim black fungus into smaller pieces, remove stems from mushroom. Rinse and set aside.

4. In a large heavy duty pot, heat 1/2 tablespoon of cooking oil on medium low heat. Saute ginger, garlic, half of the spring onion till fragrant.

5. Add mushrooms and chicken and cook for another 2 minutes until chicken are lightly browned.

6. Next add in black fungus and fish maw and continue to cook for another minute. At the meantime splash in some cooking wine, give it a quick toss and add in hot water, oyster sauce and stock cube.

7. Once the mixture comes to boil, add in sea cucumber & hard-boiled egg then reduce to low heat and simmer with covered on for 25 minutes.

8. Add baby abalone (if using) and black moss during the last 5 minutes. Before serving thicken the sauce with some cornstarch solution, scatter some goji berry and serve immediately with steamed rice.
