Braised Chicken with Apples and Ginger

I've always enjoyed cooking with fruits because I love working with natural flavours.

This is a yummy gingery apple dish that I made the other day to go along with rice. I ditched the common soy sauce chicken for something different and it turned out very well.

I'm definitely making this again!

And it is an easy recipe. Just a slow simmer to bring all the ingredients together. Taste-wise, light apple sweet and gingery. I seasoned it with a wee bit of salt and white pepper.


- 600g or half chicken (chopped)
- 2 apples, one red and one green (cut into cubes)
- 1 thumb ginger (sliced thinly)
- 1 clove garlic (chopped)
- 1 red chili (sliced)
- 2 cups water
- Salt and white pepper to taste
- Cooking oil
- 1 stalk spring onion (chopped) for garnishing

1) Heat oil in wok. Saute garlic and ginger.

2) Add apples. Give it a quick stir.

3) Add chicken. Stir lightly until browned a little.

4) Add chili, then water. Bring to a boil and simmer covered on low heat for 20 minutes or so, stirring once in between.

5) Taste and season with a pinch of salt and pepper. Let it cook for a couple of minutes to round the flavours up. 

6) Serve garnished with chopped spring onions.

1) Saute garlic, ginger and apples.
2) Brown chicken.
3) Add chili.
4) Add water and simmer covered.
