Introduction

I love this recipe handed to me by a cook in the seminary. I am not sure where the name comes from but it sure is a tasty one-pot dish.

Ingredients

Serves: 4-6

  • ½ kilogram chicken breasts (boneless cut into 1/2inch strips)
  • 1 large thinly sliced onion
  • 2 cloves chopped garlic
  • 1 large thinly sliced green bell pepper
  • 63 millilitres water
  • 2 tablespoons oyster sauce
  • white wine (optional)
  • 500 millilitres mashed potatoes
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 125 millilitres cream
  • salt
  • pepper
  • chopped cilantro
  • chopped fresh chives
  • 1 dash nutmeg

  • Saute garlic and onions in olive oil until softened. Stir in chicken strips until color changes from pink to white. Add a splash of white wine, water and oyster sauce. Simmer until sauce is slightly reduced.
  • Season with salt and pepper. Stir in sliced green bell pepper. Take off from heat and set aside.
  • Mix mashed potato, butter and cream. Season with salt and pepper. Stir in chopped coriander leaves and chives.
  • In a shallow baking dish, spread cooked chicken and cover completely with herbed mashed potato. Sprinkle with a dash of nutmeg on top.
  • Bake for 20 minutes until slightly brown and sides are bursting with the lovely oyster-chicken sauce. Enjoy.
