Corn and Chicken Recipe (Main Dish)



You know how we always associate "corn" as a side dish!  Would you believe I grew up with "corn" as part of our main dish?  And I was seriously excited for it? 

This is inspired by my mom's recipe!  I lack carrots but nevertheless, it tastes just as amazing...tastes just like my mom's "straight-to-the-tummy-and-heart" meals!

Ingredients:
  • Corn in can (Jolly)
  • Chicken breasts cut in cubes
  • Oyster sauce
  • Soy sauce
  • Salt and Pepper
  • Cornstarch slurry or a tablespoon of butter
  • Sugar or Teriyaki Sauce
  • Garlic and onion

Super simple to do, you can cook this in less than 5 minutes if all the ingredients are prepared!

  • Sauteed garlic and onions.
  • Brown the chicken cubes.
  • Once chicken cubes are brown and cooked, pour in canned corn.  
  • Stir for a minute or 2 and add water.
  • Add in soy sauce, oyster sauce and teriyaki sauce (or sugar) mixture. 
  • Add salt and pepper to taste.
  • Once you are happy with the taste, pour in cornstarch slurry to thicken the sauce.  In my case, I prefer to add a tablespoon of butter to "thicken" the sauce.  Tastes even better!
So far, Mr. AMW enjoyed the dish and asked for more!

Have you tried including corn as part of your main dish?
What other "corn" recipes have you tried?

I highly recommend to add shrimps for this dish for more flavor but I'm allergic to shrimps so I settle for chicken.

Keep smilin'
Stay happy!
