Chicken in Spicy Soy Sauce

I love cooking for my family, because they love my cooking. Every time I go back to my parent's house they request me to cook especially my cousin, she loves almost all the dishes cooked with soy sauce so I cooked for her this dish. Compared to my previous Chicken in Soy Sauce this is a spicier version and people who love spicy dishes would definitely love this.

Usually she only have one helping but with dish she took second helping and said this dish is yummy and I don't mind having this dish every day. Now let us check how I made this dish;


3 pcs of chicken whole leg (cut into small pcs)
1 tbsp of dry chilli paste
1 tbsp of oyster sauce
1 tbsp of light soy sauce
1 tsp dark soy sauce
5 pcs of bird eye chilli (slit)
1 tbsp ginger garlic paste
2 tbsp of minced garlic
1 tbsp of corn starch slurry(optional)
1 large onion (sliced)
1 cinnamon stick
1 star anise
2 cups of water
Oil to fry

In a pan, heat oil and add cinnamon stick, star anise, onions, bird eye chilli, minced garlic and ginger garlic paste stir all this until fragrant. Now add chilli paste and chicken, mix well all the ingredient then pour water, let the ingredients boil and chicken almost cooked.

Now add in dark soy sauce, light soy sauce and oyster sauce  and let the gravy reduce. Then add in the corn slurry if the gravy is not thick enough. Now our Chicken in Spicy Soy Sauce is ready to be served.

Do try and let me know how was it!
