Yen Can Cook ~ Braised Chicken with White Radish

Braised meat is one of the dishes that frequently appear on my dining table because it’s super versatile to pair with whatever other ingredients you have in hand to create a one pot dish. Braised meat/chicken not only can be easily whipped up for a weekday dinner, it also time saving as one can prepare another dish while waiting for the meat to be braised. 

I shared similar recipe earlier of Braised Chicken Wings and Daikon in Teriyaki Sauce which is more Japanese influenced. Today’s recipe is more to Chinese style with Shaoxing Wine is used for a distinctive aroma of the wine infused to the dish. 


Ingredients (Serve: 3-4)

8 chicken wings, cleaned and cut 

1/2 white radish, peeled and cut into chunks,

3-4 pieces ginger

2 stalks spring union, cut 8cm lengthwise 

30ml soy sauce

1.5 tablespoons Shaoxing Wine

1/2 tablespoon black vinegar 

6g rock sugar

salt to taste

350ml water

Cooking oil


Step 1: Heat cooking oil in a deep skillet and saute ginger and spring onion until fragrant.

Step 2: Add in chicken wings and pan fry until change colour.

Step 3: Add in white radish chunks and stir fry for 2-3 minutes.

Step 4: Add in soy sauce, black vinegar, rock sugar and water, bring to boil and turn to low heat.

Step 5: Braise for 30 minutes or until the chicken wings and white radish soften. 

Step 6: Add salt to taste and serve.
