Recipe For Nonya Pot Braised Chicken

Alex and I often take it in turns to cater for the Formula 1 events. The arrangement is very loose as there is no ways I am doing breakfast on a Sunday for anyone but Dave and I, and some of the races are late at night. But when we feel like it we get together and watch the race at either our place or Alex’s. The only thing that we make sure we do is cater for the race with a meal from the country where the event is taking place. Alex got the easy one of Italy and I was left with Singapore. A few years ago I won a book called Food and Travels Asia by Alistair Hendy, and I was so grateful for this coffee table book. It had this recipe for nonya pot braised chicken and the chicken was so good that Alex has asked me for the recipe. I had no intention of blogging the recipe when I made it, or when I took the photograph but it is so good that I had to share it with you all as well. I would not wait for the next Singapore Formula 1 race to make this – it is so good and so easy to do that I am going to keep this as a must do, must repeat often recipe in my repertoire. 

Do you watch the Formula 1 racing?
