    Soy Braised Chicken & Potatoes


    This was one of the first few dishes that I learned how to make when I was living in Australia. It’s always so comforting to enjoy this with a steaming bowl of white rice on a winter night. I love to douse my rice with the braising sauce, slowly savour the tender chicken, and enjoy the melt in the mouth braised potatoes. It just warms me inside out. 

    You can make it even simpler by omitting star anise and cinnamon stick. I like to use it because it adds more depth to the dish, and gives it a very warm flavour. My girls, who aren’t too adventurous when it comes to trying new dishes, loved it. All I needed to tell them was to at least try a small bite, and they needed no additional convincing to finish their meal. They even asked for more sauce to go over their rice! I think they got it from their mama! LOL!
