Simplifying The Traditional Chinese Casserole Chicken
I had this Chinese Casserole Chicken a lot when I was being a consultant back then in Guangzhou, China. Pieces of chicken that are seared to crispy edges, flavorful, with a light flavor of spices keep me looking for more. However, after I had left Guangzhou I never had the chance to have anything similar in Malaysia.
So I thought, let’s make one myself, without using a casserole, since a pan is definitely a lot more convenient than using a casserole at home.
p/s : I can’t take very spicy food, so I replace the chili peppers with capsicum instead.

This recipe is usually cooked with a casserole. Traditionally, in China, it is called Casserole Chicken 砂锅鸡. But not everyone has the luxury of getting-everything-you-want in their kitchen, so I have slightly simplified the recipe and make it possible with a pan or a wok, so everyone can cook it at home!
