3 stalks of green onions cut into 5cm lengths
1 large yellow onion, chopped
1 small can of button mushroom
1 small carrot, wedged

3 tbsp oil

Marinade for chicken ( one hour)

1 tsp salt
1 tsp sugar
1 tsp light soya sauce
1 tsp dark soya sauce
1 tbsp chinese wine
1 tbsp oyster sauce
2 tbsp cornflour
1 tbsp oil


Heat 3 tbsp of oil and fry ginger and garlic till fragrant.

Add in spring onions, yellow onions, carrots and mushrooms and fry for about 2 minutes.

Add in the marinaded chicken pieces without the liquid and fry for another 5 mins or till the chicken pieces brown a little.

Add in 300 mls of water, cover and bring ingredients to a boil.

Lower heat and simmer for another 40 mins.

Dish up and ready to serve.
