Asian Style ABC Stew


This is a recipe adapted from my mom-in-law’s, really simple to make because you just throw everything in and mix! Great for the days you don’t want to do too many dishes. This dish is appropriate for kids too.

You can eat this on its own or with rice.

Ingredients (for chicken and marinate, serves four)

  • 3 X chicken breast meat, cubed. Make sure breast meat is fresh or else will be powdery. Using deboned, skinned thigh meat also can.
  • 1 tbsp minced garlic or garlic powder
  • 2 tbsp oyster sauce
  • 2 tbsp tomato ketchup
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tsp white pepper
  • 1 tsp sweet thick soy sauce
  • 1 tsp Maggi seasoning

Massage in the sauces and then marinate for one to two hours in bag.

For the stew

  • 1 X red pepper, sliced
  • 1 X green pepper, sliced
  • 1 white onion, chopped
  • 2 cups of celery, chopped
  • 2 potatoes, cubed
  • 1 tbsp garlic
  • 2 tbsp oyster sauce
  • 1 tbsp sweet soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp tomato ketchup
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tsp white pepper
  • 2 cups of water

You can add tomatoes and carrots if you like, it’s really what you like to put in. Three to four veggies is usually enough. Throw all the prepared veggies into a large bowl and toss.


  • Heat some oil in med heat and brown garlic in a nice, deep skillet or pot
  • Throw in marinated chicken and cook until white
  • Throw in veggies and mix, cook for one to two minutes.
  • Pour sauces on top, finish with pepper, and then mix again, cooking for one minute.
  • Mix in water, cook until water boils.
  • Turn heat low and simmer for 20 minutes
