Squishy Chicken

    15 minutes

    This is pure weekend food. It's the sort of thing you make when you can't be bothered making anything at all, it takes mere minutes and is total indulgence. There are no redeeming vitamins in this poor thing, so dieters might like to look elsewhere - it's not that fatty but it does have egg and chicken thigh in it.

    Serves: 1 

    • 2 large eggs
    • 2 chicken thigh fillets (no bones)
    • 2 tablespoons of soy sauce
    • 2 tablespoons of oyster sauce
    • 2 tablespoons of water

    Preparation:5min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:15min 

    1. Whisk eggs in a container with a fork until combined. Chop up the chicken into chunks, not too thick.
    2. Heat a non-stick pan or wok with spray oil on it.
    3. Once hot, pour egg into pan and cook through - you're making a flat omlette here.
    4. When omlette done, remove from heat and set aside.
    5. In the same wok/pan you used before add the chicken and fry it up until cooked through and browning. Takes about 4-5 minutes.
    6. While the chicken is cooking chop the omlette into chunks.
    7. Add the water, soy and oyster sauce and chopped omelette then cook until the sauce is thick.
    8. Serve as is, hot, salty, sticky. Check taste though, if you're not sure about the oyster sauce add a little first then see how you like it. It's kind of an aquired taste, like vegemite.

    To make this for more than one person

    This is my "serves 1" version. Simply add servings together to serve more, but note - it is still best made in individual servings

    I liked the flavours in this dish and its super easy to make. As its a bit salty for my personal tastes, I think next time I will make it I might throw in a few more things..maybe a handful of veg or noodles.  -  30 Aug 2009


    Very nice recipe thank you. I added three sliced shallots and a handful of chopped basil about 2 minutes before serving. Fabulous. Next time I will add some snow peas and two seeded red chillies (if serving for two) and double the amount of oyster sauce to make it a bit more sticky.  -  17 Sep 2013


    I made this but with the little tweak of making panko-crumbed chicken. Took a little bit more time (as expected) but was soso tasty! Will definitely be making this again.  -  13 Mar 2011
