Chicken Chop

This is one of my daughters favourite dish and made it for dinner a few weeks ago. This is a simple dish and I highly recommend purchasing a millet to flatten the meat a little bit. I don't have a millet and my chicken was a thick piece of meat. Nevertheless, we enjoyed it.

For this dish, I used a deboned thigh meat but you can use breast meat if you like.


2 deboned chicken thigh meat,
freshly ground black pepper
salt to taste
2-3 Tbsp worchestershire sauce
extra virgin olive oil /olive oil

Brown Sauce
half medium onion, chopped/thinly sliced
2-3 tbsp water
1 tsp flour
sliced mushroom (optional)

1. Marinate chicken meat with pepper, salt and worchestershire sauce for about 1hr or overnite 2. Heat up EVO in a pan and grill the chicken pieces till cooked. Start with the skin side down first
3. Remove chicken pieces and put it aside
4. Add chopped/sliced onion and cook till they turn transparent
5. Add water one tablespoon at a time and stir the mixture
6. Add mushrooms if you are using it and simmer
7. Add abt 1tsp of water into the flour and mix it well
8. Pour flour mixture into the pan to thicken the sauce
9. Add salt and pepper to taste if you like
10.Arrange chicken piece on a plate and pour some of the sauce/gravy over the chicken
11.Serve with potatoes and salad

Note: You can add other herbs or spices to suit your taste.

spots Hope you try it :)

em :) Yes, you can add any other things that you like .. but if you put breadcrumbs, you may need to shallow fry the meat otherwise the crumbs won't stay.

foodcrazee I never use a cleaver and my knife is pretty pathetic so the best to me is a millet ah ;) Alternatively can use my batu lesung .. how?

batu lesung too heavy lar ....mana boleh....any knife willdo as long as u use the blunt side.

Em.....it wont happen unless u turn on the gas for 10 minutes and then baru u light up....

What flour should you use for the Brown Sauce?

The recipe looks easy and interesting. Thanks.
