Went grocery shopping last evening and bought new sauces to expand my Cooking skills. Was always stuck to Soy sauce, added one more to the shelf this time, Worcestershire Sauce.
The first dish with this of course has to be a chicken dish. I cooked the chicken in the sauce for five minutes and put it in oven to be grilled. Kept it in for extra minute to get the burnt flavour. The burnt sauce adds to the flavour.
This dish could pass on as a Chinese Dish but the Worcestershire sauce is anything but Chinese. It is of British origin, but used in lot of Thai/Chinese cuisine.
- Chicken Thigh – 5 pieces
- Lime juice – 1 tsp
- Sesame oil – 2 tsp
- Ginger & garlic – Freshly crushed 1 tsp each
- Soy Sauce – 3 tsp
- Worcestershire Sauce – 3-4 tsp
- Honey – 4-5 tsp
- Freshly ground pepper – 1 tsp
- Salt to taste
Wash the chicken and drain the excess water. Marinate the chicken with little salt and lime juice and keep aside. Pre heat the oven at 200 degree celcius.
Take a frying pan and heat it. Add the sesame oil. When the oil is hot add the ginger garlic paste (preferable freshly crushed) and sauté. Add the marinated chicken and turn it once or twice.
Now add the soy sauce followed by Worcestershire sauce and honey. Mix well and keep turning the chicken, Taste the sauce and if need add little bit of salt and crushed pepper. This should not take more than five minutes. Turn off the stove and transfer the chicken to an oven proof dish and pour the sauce over the chicken and grill the chicken for ten minutes.
Remove after ten minutes check if the chicken is done, if not turn the chicken pieces and keep it in oven for another five minutes. After five minutes turn the temperature up to 220 and keep the dish for 2-3 minutes to let the garlic and sauce burn but not too much.
Garnish it with crushed pepper and serve it with rice noodles.
