Yummy and easy chicken and potato stew!
I guess this dish needs no introduction because it is like a staple recipe for many busy mothers. This dish is also a comfort food for me from my childhood memories.
Whenever I am busy, or when I have no idea what to cook for my kids, I’ll cook this! Thankfully,the kiddos also super love the taste of this one-pot dish.

For a healthier version, I like to use chicken breast – just slice the chicken breast at an angle, so that they won’t turn too tough after cooking. But of course, if you prefer a really tender bite to the meat, I’d suggest using deboned chicken thigh.

This dish is also easy to adjust to your preference, in terms of seasoning, as well as if you prefer more or less gravy. I usually go more light-handed in seasoning, with slightly more gravy as my kids love it!
Quick and easy chicken and potato stew, which is the comfort food for many Asian families. Great recipe for the kiddos as it's an all-time favourite for them!
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 250 g chicken breast or deboned chicken thigh, cut into bite size
- 1 medium potato, peeled and cubed
- 1 medium carrot, peeled and cut into bite sized chunks
- 3 tbsp frozen green peas, thawed
- 3/4 tsp light soy sauce
- 1/2 tsp sesame oil
- Dash of white pepper
- 1 tsp sesame oil
- 1 tsp light soy sauce
- 1/2 tsp dark soy sauce, optional
- Dash of white pepper
- 20-45 ml hot water
- 2 tsp cornflour
- 4 tsp water
If you are using chicken thigh, you might want to trim off the skin and extra fats. Marinate the cut chicken breast or thighs. Set aside for about 10-15 mins. You can take this time to prepare other ingredients.
Heat up your frying pan with some oil. Place the minced garlic in the oil before it gets too hot. When the minced garlic is hot and fragrant, add in the marinated chicken.
Stir fry till the chicken is no longer pink. Add in the potato and carrot. Give it a few quick stir and add in the seasoning and hot water, where the water level should be able to cover at least 1/2 of the ingredients in the pan.
When the ingredients come to a boil, lower heat and simmer for about 20-25 minutes or until the potato and carrot is soft enough. Add in the thawed green peas just before the stew is done cooking.
Mix cornflour and water together and add into the cooked stew. Stir constantly and you will see that the mixture thicken to a thick gravy.
Off heat and serve warm with a bowl of warm rice.
You can omit the dark soy sauce if you are not comfortable with using it. It is mainly for a nicer color.
