  • 1 tbsp butter (optional) it adds taste and good smell when you frying the chicken


  •  Fry FIRST the potatoes because it taste much better if you fry it and when it turned out brown set it aside.

  • Then fry the chicken with the oil and add little butter. Cook all of the sides for about 5 minutes

  • When the chicken is cooked you can now put the onion and galic. Simmer for 2-3 minutes

  • Put soy sauce, bay leaves, 1 cup of water and peppercorn.  Boil it  for 30 minutes or until the chicken is tender.

  • Put the fry potatoes, add vinegar, sugar and salt (to taste). Stir and cook for another 5 minutes. Served hot and enjoy! Best to served with hot cooked rice on the plate.. 🙂
