Braised Chicken with Pork Belly - Jolly Belly #1

Monday, April 22, 2013



This is a dish from Terengganu MFF.
Introduced to us by Phong Hong and further elaborated by Daphne Chua, both whose ancestors stayed in Kampung Tiong Kuala Terengganu.

I was very curious about the taste of having chicken and pork belly together in one dish and the use of soooo much shallots. Few other bloggers tried out the recipe and everybody raved about it. So, I didn't want to lose out, hehehe, and so I tried it too!





Indeed it was sooo nice. it looks similiar like the Chinese pork stew (tau yew bak) that we are used to, with the addition of chicken, but the taste is actually quite different. Sweetish, but very pleasant.

The method of cooking may not the most original (as explained by Daphne, that calls for caramelizing the sugar in advance. Please do read her post on our FB event page), but the dark colour is compensated with the use of dark caramel sauce.

I may not know how does the real version taste like, but this is simplified version is just as good, as many other bloggers can testify.

Thanks again to Phong Hong and Daphne



Kay Hong ~ Terengganu Braised Chicken with Pork Belly
Source: Phong Hong

450gm chicken
250gm pork belly, skin on, cut into 1inch cubes
6 hard boiled eggs
150gm shallots
3 cloves garlic
50gm bean paste
1 Tbsp palm sugar
2 Tbsp kecap manis (I used ABC brand)
1 tsp dark caramel sauce (or as needed)
Salt, as needed

1. Grind shallots and garlic to a fine paste.
2. Heat wok on medium heat and put in 3 Tbsp oil and sauté the shallot paste until fragrant and looks glossy.
3. Put in bean paste and continue to sauté until fragrant. Turn heat to high.
4. Put in belly and cook until the meat turns opaque and smells really good.
5. Put in 2 cups water and transfer to a small pot (2-3L capacity is enough). Put in palm sugar, kecap manis, dark caramel sauce. Bring to a boil and cover with lid. Lower to a simmer for 40 minutes.
6. Add in chicken and bring back to a boil. Lower to a simmer for another 30 minutes. Taste and adjust with salt.
7. Put in eggs and bring back to a boil, let the eggs simmer in the gravy for another 5-10 minutes. Turn off the heat and let it sit in the pot until dinner time.


So, which was your favourite?
The chicken?


The eggs?

Or the Belly?
