Delicious spicy, creamy chicken

Spicy And Creamy Fried Chicken is another dish that my family loves. You will notice that I hardly use cream and cheese in my cooking. In fact I seldom buy them unless I need it for baking. But then most of my cakes do not need cream or cheese either. So cream and cheese are rare commodities in my house.

Well, I thought it’s a good try on chicken. I did not have cream but found a tin of light evaporated milk in my cupboard. I thought I would give it a try. It actually came out very delicious. Being ginger lovers, my daughter said it would taste even much better with some ginger added. I’ll have to try that next time. My children are my greatest food critics but also my greatest encouragers. And hubby…..he just loves all the food…that’s easy….LOL.

Ingredients A
500g chicken
1T light soya sauce
1T oyster sauce
1 egg (lightly beaten)
1t sugar

Leave some oil in the frying pan from frying the chicken. Add 1T of butter, sliced chili and chopped coriander. Fry for a while until fragrant. Add Ingredients C. Once it boils, add in the chicken and mix to coat well. Dish it up on to a plate and serve hot. This is a lovely dish to go with rice or noodles.

Wow, I’ve never heard of fried chicken that’s marinated in a creamy sauce first. Sounds good. I have all the ingredients to try it- maybe I can make it for dinner this evening. But I don’t have oyster sauce. Would that affect the taste much if I make it without it?

Mary  on October 19th, 2009

@The Nomadic Gourmet - By the way, the marinade is not creamy. The sauce itself is creamy. But you won’t get it wrong if you follow the instructions. The oyster sauce gives a very nice flavour but if you don’t have it, you can substitute with light soya sauce or bean paste though it will taste slightly different. Give a try….you may like it very much. I love to experiment.

Hi Mary,

I agree with you that this dish is delicious..for I imagine the aroma just reading your notes here :)) thanks for sharing. Will try this out the next time I cook a chicken dish. You are such a wonderful momsie :)

That’s very Asian when it comes to marinating meat and some Western or Filipino influence when it comes to the sauce. Filipinos love the use of evaporated milk in their sauces and soups. I love spicy food. Dad likes spicy food too but not too spicy.

This looks fantastic! Do you think fish sauce would be ok instead of oyster sauce? I unfortunatly haven’t found any oyster sauce in the little town I’m living in and the closest place that might have it is about 30 minutes away. I do think I will give this a try when I get some more chicken!

Mary  on October 19th, 2009

@Elin - Thanks for your compliment. Hope you try it out soon.

@Divina - Thanks for sharing. I’m happy with a new discovery….evaporated milk in cooking. Lovely to know that Filipinos use that a lot too. This dish is not too spicy, quite mild. The chili that I used are the bigger type which are less spicy. I removed all the seeds too.

Mary  on October 19th, 2009

@Rochelle - Fish sauce is very different from oyster sauce. I seldom use fish sauce unless I do some Thai cooking. But you can always give a try. It may come out delicious. I always love to experiment. 30 minutes drive is not too far away. I suggest that the next time you go there, get a couple of bottles. I always buy more to stock up if I find the place is far and inconvenient to go frequently. If you love my dishes, you’ll find that very often I use some oyster sauce.

Wow, the chicken looks fantastic prepared this way, it must be super tender and delicious!

Mary, this looks wonderful! And I love it when a trial substitution (the evaporated milk) works out! Another lovely dish!

Drick  on October 19th, 2009

another fine recipe from you - thanks for giving us this one…sounds so good…

penny aka jeroxie  on October 19th, 2009

Evaporated milk in cooking…..hmmmm….. not tried that before. Will have to give it a go.

Mary  on October 19th, 2009

@Natasha - Thanks for comment. Yes, the chicken is very tender because I use chicken thigh. It’s very delicious. Hope you try it soon.

@the traditional gourmet - Thanks for your compliment. I’m thankful that this time my trial works very well. Sometimes it didn’t but still quite delicious.

@Drick - I know you would like this one because of the creamy sauce……:o)

@Penny - I think we can always substitute cream with evaporated milk but I’m not too sure. I’ll try out more recipes and see if it works.

I would love this dish to add in a little more curry leaves! Oooo….can’t wait to eat them. yum…

Mary  on October 21st, 2009

@Kristy - I’m sure adding curry leaves would add some lovely flavour to this dish. Sad that I can’t always find it here. Probably the next time if I see it I’ll have to buy more and freeze them. Thanks for auggestion. I’ll try that next time.
