Quick post! I have been craving for this dish since forever and finally cooked it tonight. It is super easy to cook and everything is done in one pot, so washing up is a breeze. I thoroughly recommend this for weeknight dinners! You should be familiar with the confinement dish 猪脚醋? This is similar except I used chicken thigh pieces instead and way less ginger. I say chicken goes really well with the gravy. I prefer it actually. I didn’t add hard boiled eggs but you totally could to make this dish even more complete.
I feel quite bad towards the husband as I have been endlessly catching up on work, blogging and assignments recently that he had instant noodles for dinner two times within the last week. I haven’t cooked him a ‘new’ meal in days, like dishes he hasn’t tried before and there were times that I was so caught up in front of the computer that he had to go buy us dinner from the kopitiam opposite our block both days over the weekend. Dinner for us has been quick fixes – yong tau foo soup, sliced fish soup, shakshuka or grilled salmon.
