  1. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook onion and ginger for 3 minutes, browning slightly. Lay chicken in the skillet, skin side down. Fry until golden, about 10 minutes, turning once with tongs.
  2. In a bowl, whisk together tomato sauce, soy sauce, oyster sauce, and garlic salt, and pour evenly over chicken. Gently fold in peas, bell pepper, and potato. Simmer 20 to 30 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through and no longer pink in the center. Season with ground black pepper.

I made this pretty much as published, only substitutions I made were replaced the 4 med. potatoes with one large sweet potato and a can of garbanzo beans (since I had no regular potatoes on hand) and used frozen peas instead of canned for the same reason. Flavor was excellent, only reason for 4 stars instead of 5 is that it's way too oily. I will be making this more, but with half the oil or less next time. Goes well with the Syrian Bread recipe from this site.



This recipe is excellent. I would recommend you to follow the recipe exactly. DO NOT omit the ginger as it is what gives this recipe the zing. The whole family loved it. Hubby says this is the best dish I've ever made.



This is a really yummy recipe! I cooked it in a crock pot, which made the chicken REALLY tender. The recipe was a bit salty, so I added a little more tomato sauce, and substituted the baby peas with carrots. I will definitely make it again. Reminds me of home!
