Everything’s Perfect

Yep, that’s the exact words I say when I put a bite of my grandmother’s braised chicken into my mouth. Many of you may be wondering, what’s so good about a simple braised chicken. The title says it, everything’s perfect.

The tenderness and soft gravy combined with a juicy portion of onions can be the most exquisite combo. When trying it with rice and steamed broccoli, I felt like I was at home. I have had this dish before, but never was it so balanced and delicious. It wasn’t too salty, and had this interesting sweet flavor mixed in there as well. From the outside it looked golden and moist which is a great sign for food before eating it. As I looked at the braised chicken, bubbling and steaming in the giant pan, I recall feeling my stomach starting to growl a little.

Because this dish was so great, I actually don’t have a lot to say about it. It’s an all around classic! I mean, in general, my grandmother makes the best food, regardless of what it actually is. As a simple, but tasty dinner, I totally recommend it. You’re probably going to take out bite and be like “Yep, Nate’s right. Everything’s Perfect!”



2x White Onions, 10x Chicken Thighs, avocado oil, and the amount of broccoli you desire (steamed).

First marinate the chicken in a mixture of garlic, ginger, soy sauce, and Chinese wine (any). Let the chicken rest in the fridge for at least 30 minutes. Put salt and pepper on the chicken and lightly flour it. Pan fry the chicken after that. Then you need to take out the chicken and put it on a plate nearby. In the same pan (if you want), drizzle some avocado oil on it and sautee all the onions. Finally put the chicken on top of the onions and pour the can of chicken broth on top. Cook at the “simmer” heat and wait until the chicken turns soft (whatever you want). There you have it!
