Flame Seedless Grape Chicken In Soy Sauce

Grapes are so delicious with chicken. I fell in love with the combination after trying out a roast grape chicken recipe, from a home cooking magazine I had subscribed to, many years ago. I make it almost every festive season now, but it just dawned on me a couple of weeks ago that it could probably go well in a stir-fry too.

It was an afternoon reflection on what I should do with the flame seedless grapes I had purchased out of impulse, that led me to try cooking this in another way.

"Roast grape chicken ........again? " The word 'again' echoed without enthusiasm in my mind.

I started imagining about a glossy dark soy dish. By dinner time, it was on the table and all of it devoured. This is it:

Flame Seedless Grape Chicken In Soy Sauce

What do you think?

Salty-sweet, tastes really yum! I had this with plain rice, but I bet it would be great with butter rice or springy noodles too.

Soy Sauce Flame Seedless Grape Chicken

- 530g chicken (chopped into smaller pieces)
- 150g flame seedless grapes (halved)
- 1 large onion (sliced)
- 1 thumb ginger (julienned)
- 1 red chilli (chopped)
- 2 tbsp chopped fresh coriander
- 1 tbsp dark soy (thick salty-sweet variety)
- 2 tbsp pure leatherwood honey
- 6 dried cloves (aka bunga cengkih)
- 3 tbsp cooking oil

1) Heat cooking oil in pan.
2) Saute onion and ginger for just awhile, along with dried cloves.
3) Add chicken. Stir-fry until lightly browned.
4) Add dark soy. Stir-fry until cooked.
5) Add chilli, grapes and honey. Stir to combine all the flavours.
6) Switch the heat off. Toss in fresh coriander. Mix and serve.

Note: I use a non-stick pan. Work quickly and keep stirring (to keep the ginger and onions from getting burnt). No water was added.

1) Ingredients. 2) Adding soy sauce into the mix.
3) Adding the grapes. 4) Finally, toss in fresh coriander.
