My Cooking Journal 5 - Braised Chicken Wing & Mushrooms with Soy Sauce

This is one of my favourite dish that I used to cook very often in Dubai. It takes approximately 1 hour 30 minutes to prepare and cook. Not suitable to cook if you are rushing for time. But I really love the taste!

  1. Chicken wings (8 pieces) - Chop them into 3 sections
  2. 1 clove of garlic (diced)
  3. 1/2 inch of ginger (Sliced)
  4. 1 Yellow/White Onion (diced)
  5. 3 stalk spring onions (cut into 1/2 inches) - green part for garnish
  6. Dried Mushroom (6 to 8 pieces) - soak in cold water for about 30 minutes
  7. 1 tablespoon light soy sauce
  8. 1 teaspoon chinese rice wine (optional)
  9. Small pinch of pepper
  10. 1/2 teaspoon of Sugar
  1. 1 tablespoon dark soy sauce
  2. 1 tablespoon light soy sauce
  3. 1/2 teaspoon of Sugar (preferably brown sugar)
  4. Small pinch of pepper
  5. 1 teaspoon of Sesame oil
  1. Marinate the chicken wings with the above seasoning for 1 hour - set aside
  2. Heat the oil over medium-high heat in a wok
  3. Add ginger, garlic, yellow onions, white part of spring onions, stir until softened.
  4. Add the chicken wing and cook until brown.
  5. Add mushrooms, water (water level enough to cover the chicken wing), 1 tablespoon of light soy sauce, 1 teaspoon chinese rice wine and bring to boil. Reduce the heat, covered and simmer for 1 hour.
  6. Add 1/2 teaspoon of sugar, pinch of pepper, simmer, uncovered for another 20 minutes. Taste and adjust seasoning, add more soy sauce, sugar or pepper as desired.
  7. Garnish with the green part of sping onions.
