K’s Kitchen – Chicken and Potatoes with sweet and sour soy sauce

Chicken and potatoes are both very common ingredients, and cooking ingredients with sweetened soy sauce is a very common method in Japanese cooking. What makes this recipe different is that there is some vinegar in it, which cuts through the sweetness.  This is a totally different recipe from the sweet and sour Chinese food you may find in food courts, being much less sweet and much less fatty.

Although this recipe may not look like much, it was really yummy.  It is a great recipe to make on the weekends to eat during the week.

6 chicken drumsticks
2 potatoes
2 cloves garlic
2 tablespoons vinegar
3 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon sugar
2 tablespoons mirin
200 ml Japanese dashi stock

1. Peel and cut the potatoes

2. Mince the garlic. Heat a pot, add oil and minced garlic. Brown the potatoes and drumsticks, and add vinegar, soy sauce, sugar, mirin, and stock.

3. Simmer for 30 min, and reduce broth.

Hope you enjoyed this recipe!
