Chinese-Style Spicy chicken with Potatoes

Shared by: Katrina

I cooked this dish with my mom full of patients and love!


Chicken legs and wings,
Chinese style hot sauce,
Grapeseed oil,
Cooking wine,
Soy sauce

Star anise, Chinese style Pepper


1. Go to the grocery store to buy the chicken legs and wings. Wash and clean the chicken, then use knife to cut several slits in the middle of chicken. Next, start to marinate the chicken: pour 1-2 spoonfuls of soy sauce (reduce or add more according to your taste), a spoonful of salt, a spoonful of cooking wine, a spoonful of dark soy sauce, a right amount starch. Then stir and scratch the mixture well. Wait for an hour.

2. Heat up 1/2 cup of oil in a wok or skillet over medium heat. Then put in a star anise, right amount Chinese style pepper, onion, garlic, ginger to fry the aromatic. Then put in the marinated chicken and fry over high heat until the chicken looks lightly browned. Then add a half spoonful of Chinese-style spicy sauce in a wok, stir and fry with the mixture.

3. Add water and let braise. There should be enough water to just cover the chicken. Let the mixture come to a boil, then reduce the heat until a gentle simmer. Don’t forget to put in an amount salt again. Let braise, uncovered, for 30 min.

4. Put in onions and potatoes, stir it with mixture and fry them continually till the potato is fried. If the water has reduced too quickly, add more water as needed to braise the potatoes. Be careful not to break up the potatoes.

5. Enjoy the meal!
