Claypot Chicken with Mushrooms Recipe

Ingredients :

    • 500 g (1 lb) boneless chicken thighs, cubed
    • 3 cloves garlic, minced
    • 2 tablespoons minced ginger
    • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
    • 1 teaspoon ground pepper
    • 2 tablespoons oil
    • 100 g (2 cups) sliced fresh shiitake mushroom caps
    • 300 g (2 cups) sliced green beans
    • 200 g (2 cups) grated or thinly shredded carrot
    • 1 red bell pepper, sliced
    • 4–6 red bird’s-eye chilies
    • 6 sprigs coriander leaves, chopped
    • 125 ml (1/2 cup) Fish Sauce Syrup

Method :

    1. Make the Fish Sauce Syrup.
    2. Place the chicken, garlic, ginger, rice vinegar and pepper in a bowl. Set aside to marinate for at least 30 minutes.
    3. Heat the oil in a claypot or pot until almost smoking. Stir in the marinated chicken and cook until the garlic is fragrant. Add the mushrooms, green beans, carrot, red bell pepper, chilies and Fish Sauce Syrup. Stir to combine well. The mixture should be gathered in the center of the pot. Cover and cook over medium heat until the vegetables are done and the liquid reduces to a very thick sauce.
    4. Sprinkle with the chopped coriander leaves and serve with steamed rice.
