Recipe Instructions

This recipe calls for 'tauco' which can be either salted black beans or salted yellow beans. Either can be found in a Chinese market as salted black bean or salted yellow bean sauce. Or you can track down Indonesian salted yellow beans and smash 'em up yourself. Thai markets carry them.

Cut the chicken into serving pieces; wash, and dry. Slice the onions. Pound the garlic and the tauco into a smooth paste.

Fry the onions in the oil for half a minute. Add the tauco, then the chicken. Stir well, so that every part of the chicken is coated with tauco. Put in the soy sauce and the rest of the ingredients. Cover, and simmer very gently for 45 minutes. Then take the lid off, and cook for a further 5 minutes to reduce the sauce. Serve hot.
