Kangkung Chicken


Whether you spell it kankun chicken, kangkong chicken or kangkun chicken, this dish here is a favourite among Thai style stir fries.

There are a few steps to making sure stir fries turn out well. Prepping ingredients before you start cooking is one of them. Using high heat when cooking is another. Making sure the meat is completely defrosted and the veggies are of good quality are also important steps. And finally, making sure the stir fry sauce, the thing that’s going to bring everything together is tasteful is a crucial step in ensuring everything goes well.  


In our stir fry sauce we used Exotic Food Supreme Oyster Sauce which we got from one of our partners Euro Store. The sauce really has some great umami flavour with just a hint of sweetness, making it ideal for not only Asian style dishes like stir fries and fried rices, but also marinades, burgers, wraps and many more.
