Rose McHale Always happy to share grandma’s recipe!

So, I generally measure out my water into the pan by using a bowl. If there’s 4 of us eating I put in 5 bowls of water. 6 of us- 7 bowls of water.

I add in enough chicken to feed us. A few chicken breasts without bones and a few thighs with skin and bone. But grandma usually uses a whole mini chicken. I just like keeping it simpler. Lol.

Boil/simmer until cooked. Then take the chicken out, cut it up and place aside.

Add in two heaping handfuls of ginger, sliced. Sometimes without the skin and sometimes with the skin. Just depends on our mood that day, if we feel like scraping it off. 😅

Add in two chicken bouillon cubes, garlic salt (1 tbsp or so), a few dollops of oyster sauce. Then let simmer on low for a few hours.

I then add one onion cut into thin slices and turn it up until the onion is tender. Add a splash/drizzle of soy sauce, and some pepper.

Then add the chicken back in and turn off the heat. Serve with (on top of) a bowl of Jasmine rice.

We don’t measure the seasoning usually because we make it so often. But that’s it. It’s really simple. You may also need to add more water while it’s simmering if the water level goes down.
