This was a plate of Hainanese chicken chop i took at restaurant Sin Kok Thye Port Klang.No Wow nice presentation, but I like their lightly coated chicken chop but not over starchy ,and the meat was well marinated and very flavourful. Also like the watery tomato sauce which has slight savoury and tangy.
This is my copycat version ^_^, and it taste almost the same..you know why?
Because I went one round to Ladies, and accidently found their secret ingredient, this was the brand of tomato ketchup they were using, hehehe..Usually i don't buy this brand of tomato ketchup, anyway I bought a bottle just to cook this dish.
For green pea, try to use frozen green pea instead of canned green pea for better colour ..
From what I have tasted, they deep fry the potato wedges
to make sure potato cook thoroughly, first I boiled them till soft then deep fry
I lightly coated the marinate chicken thigh with rice flour or you can use corn flour too.
