Chicken With Milk Sauce

Since it was a Saturday and a weekend, we thought of trying out some new recipe for dinner. My sister was responsible for the vegetables and Black Bean with Chicken Feet Soup while I will be responsible for the meat. After browsing through the recipe book, I thought we should tried out the Chicken with Milk Sauce.

So, we bought ourselves three chicken drumsticks. The ingredients and preparation method is simple although you would need to marinate the chicken for at least an hour.

It turned out well. In fact, looking at the ingredients and method of preparation, the dish looked very similar to Chicken Kurma with the exception that Chicken Kurma requires Tumeric and lemon grass as part of the ingredients.


  • 3 chicken drumsticks
  • 100g ginger - chopped
  • 6 shallots - chopped
  • 5 pips of garlic - chopped
  • 5 tablespoon of sesame oil


  • 1 1/2 tablespoon of light soya sauce
  • 100ml evaporated milk
  • Dash of sugar


  • Marinate the chopped chicken drumsticks for at least an hour.
  • Blanch in hot oil and leave aside. Discard any excessive oil.
  • Fry chopped ingredients till fragrance.
  • Add in the chicken drumsticks, light soya sauce, milk and sugar.
  • Mixed well and cooked in medium heat until sauce thickens.
  • Serve hot.

Hi Rodney..
Yet another great recipe there.. it made my stomach "growl".. haha.. will try this recipe on wed... haha... thks for the recipe... it looks like curry chicken. Is it spicy since the ingredients consist of 100g ginger? How's the taste like? I hope u dun mind to share ya.. ;)

Hi Esmeralda. The recipe from recipe book. haha. does look a little like curry chicken because of the milk. It's not spicy at all but make sure that you use younger ginger and not old ginger because old ginger tends to be more spicy. The soya sauce gives it a tinge of saltiness and the sweetness comes from the sugar. Because of the milk which tends to thicken upon cooking, I find the chicken and sauce very `filling'. I can't take too much but my wife loves every single drop. She is the more `cheesy' person.

This is nice and yummy! Do you use any curry powder in this menu?

Daddy said...

Hi Sarah's mommy. Nope. No curry powder with this dish. Just evaporated milk. The longer you boiled it, the thicker the milk will become and the more yellowish it turns. So, it is wise not to overcook it.

Yalor...seeing your ingredients, I don't expect it to come out like kurma chicken. It looks so tasty and easy. I must try.

Sarah's Daddy and Mommy said... the colour from the milk. I thought it is curry powder.
Thanks ya!
