Children like it the most.Although it is simple, if you want to make chicken nuggets fragrant but not greasy and potatoes soft but not rotten, you still need to have certain skills. The time of each ingredient is very important. Let’s try it together.
How to make braised chicken nuggets with potatoes
Prepare the main ingredients you need: 5 chicken drumsticks, 2 medium-sized potatoes, other ingredients are also ready, we can start making.
Clean the chicken drumsticks and chop them into small pieces, not too small. I think a chicken drumstick is chopped into about 3 pieces.
Prepare 2 more medium-sized potatoes, remove the skins, clean them, and cut them into sloping knife blocks, that is, hob blocks, just cut them at will. This red-skinned potato is fragrant, soft and waxy, very delicious and not expensive. I have bought it many times and highly recommend it to my friends.
Prepare some scallions and ginger slices, no other seasonings are needed.
Add water to the pot, put the chicken nuggets into the pot with cold water, blanch it to remove the fishy smell, take it out, rinse the surface of the chicken nuggets with warm water, and drain the water.
Pour a small bowl of water into the wok, then put 60 grams of rock sugar in it, and slowly heat it over medium-low heat until the rock sugar melts. It doesn’t matter if you have more water or less.
Stir continuously with a wooden spatula, or on a medium-to-low heat, slowly fry until the rock sugar changes color. This takes a little longer and you must be patient. If you fry sugar for the first time, it is recommended to use soft white sugar to better grasp it, and the time required is relatively short.
After the sugar color is cooked, quickly pour the drained chicken nuggets in, and stir fry slowly to color. Chicken nuggets must not have gouache, otherwise they will burst! Be careful of being burned.
Add appropriate amount of warm water, a little bit more, it’s okay if the chicken nuggets are not over, add the chopped green onion, ginger slices, add 3 spoons of cooking wine, close the lid, turn to a low heat, and simmer slowly 15 minutes.
After 15 minutes, open the lid, add the sliced potato pieces, add some salt, then close the lid, and simmer again on low heat for 10 minutes, until the potato pieces are tender.
Well, a large plate of delicious and rice stewed chicken nuggets with potatoes is ready. The potatoes are soft and the chicken nuggets are fragrant and soft. The family loves to eat them. They are all eaten as soon as they are on the table. This is also my child’s favorite dish. I don’t eat enough every time I cook it. It’s indispensable for the New Year and the holidays.
