Onion Cinnamon Chicken Stew

Onion Cinnamon Chicken Stew1

Being a housewife with 3 kids, sometimes I ran out of idea on what to cook for the children. I prefer something simple, delicious and easy to prepare. I came across this yummy Onion Cinnamon Chicken Stew recipe at HappyHomeMaker's blog. After gone through her step by step pictorial recipe, I decided to give it a try and guess what?? My kids enjoyed it so much, it's yummy. Thank you for sharing the recipe! ☻


3 large whole chicken leg - chopped into 4-5 pieces

Marinate the chicken:
2 tbsp oyster sauce
2 tbsp soy sauce
1 tbsp dark/black soy sauce
1 tsp salt
a few shakes of white pepper

Other ingredients:

1 large cinnamon stick - smashed into smaller pieces
5 large potatoes - cut into wedges or chunks
5 large onion - peeled & sliced, you can add more if you like onion

more oyster sauce, soy sauce & salt for seasoning

Onion Cinnamon Chicken Stew


Heat 2 tbsp oil in a pan, stir in the marinated chicken and cook for about 3 mins.
Add in potatoes, onions & cinnamon sticks, stir to mix.
Season it with 2 tbsp oyster sauce, salt to taste and stir to mix all the ingredients thoroughly, about 3 mins.
Add about 2 cup of water. The water should cover half of the chicken & potatoes. Stir and bring to boil.
In lower heat, simmer the chicken stew for about 40 mins, be sure to stir every few minutes for even cooking as the water does not cover everything.
Check the taste of the stew and adjust it with more salt or soy sauce to your own preference.
Let the stew stand for 30 mins to 1 hour, so the flavours are all totally infused.
Voila! This simple & delicious onion cinnamon chicken stew is ready to be served with rice.

Note: For those who have kids at home. Try this yummy onion cinnamon chicken stew, not only the kids love it, I'm falling in love with it too! ☻
