Drunken Chicken.....

Lets start by mentioning no chickens got drunk in the making of this dish,nor is there any alcohol involved so its completely ok to serve it to little ones.



Drunken chicken the cheats version, because who has all night to be idling at the stove....Not I said the Little Red Hen ...

So we start with a stock-hardcore recipes will call this a Master Stock....sounds impressive eh. I call it enough liquid to poach your breasts into succulent morsels of goodness!

DRUNKEN CHICKEN
Serves two-double triple etc for more

1 Onion
1 Carrot
Splash of sesame oil
2 1/2 cups chicken stock
Splash of soy (2 teaspoons)
Splash of fish sauce
Tablespoon of brown sugar
Tablespoon of Kecap Manis 
2 Chicken breasts.

Combine all of the above in a shallow pan that you can cover. Make sure the Chicken is covered in liquid. Simmer away until the chicken is cooked. Poaching is a winner with chicken breasts, its really difficult to dry them out. WIN!

I served with rice and greens. Choose what ever takes your fancy.

Ladle extra stock over before serving. Its yummy,fresh and healthy. If you're into the no carb thing,omit rice.
