Hello! Just want to ask what is the different between a premium soya sauce n normal ones? Will the taste will be affected if I don't use premium sauces? Thanks in advance

Another question. Just out of curiosity, why is the dish called 3 Cups Chicken?

Hi yummybear, I can answer the 2nd part of your Q, 3 cups chicken coz the original recipe calls for 1 cup sesame oil, 1 cup chinese wine and 1 cup soya sauce! It was the 1 cup sesame oil that nearly gave me a heart attack! :shock: :shock: Hurray for Angie's version!

Cwl, You're welcome. Thanks for answering Yummybear's question. Yes, I cannot stomach 1 cup of sesame oil :shock: , though sesame oil is supposed to be a 'healthier' oil.

Yummybear, regading the soya sauce, I don't know the defination of 'premium' by Amy Beh's standard. But I guess as soya sauce is one of the 3 main ingredients, it would be good to use a better one. I've always been using Kikoman, which I find has a nice fragrance and is not as saltish(even for the non low-salt version). HTHs.

Thanks Cwl for the info of this dish. Alamak 1 cup of sesame oil ? :shock:
That is really too much for me too.

Thank Coxiella for the tip. I will try to find Kikoman brand now. Anything healthy is always good for me Wink

Angie, made your 3 cup chicken for dinner last nite, and you're right, it is soooo good! I can't get the dark soya sauce like the ones back home, so my chicken's not your lovely dark color, more like chocolate chicken! Wink

Wah! Cwl, your drumsticks look very delish. I see you have reduced the gravy to coat the chic nicely, yum! Very Happy 'Chocolate' chicken doesn't matter, as long as it's delicious Wink

coxiella,

my kitchen smelt so nice when I was cooking this. I didn't need to add any water and my soy sauce was quite salty (I always thought my soy was low sodium island ). The chicken was full of flavour. Once again I used drumstick - easier as I don't have to cut the chicken up and same price when on special Smile .

Thank you for sharing this adapted healthier version.

coxiella , cwl

I am the bone gnaw'er Smile . Hubby said the big drumstick is too musclely. He likes his meat very soft wherelse I like mine just right with a bit of spring still in it. So as it is me that does the cooking, I do what I like Smile

This is my humble attempt at the 3-cup chicken. Presentation-wise looks messy, but taste-wise is good! Everyone in the family loves it and its such an easy dish to cook! Thanks for sharing the recipe Angie!

Sinner,

Heheh, too musclely, first time I heard this description. My hubby is the exact opposite, he will 'dive' straight for the drum :lol:

Noelle, you're most welcome, glad you and your family liked it

hee... hee... wonder whether there is such a word :roll: . If there is a 'wing' both of us will dive for it Smile . Not allowed wings too often - told off by the doc, too much 'skin' :shock:

Thank you for the recipe.
We liked it very much. I've got lots of sauce because I kept the lid on the pot, I didn't mind, the sauce it's so yummy. We had it with rice.
