The consistency of the Oriental Chicken sauce
Asked on 9 Apr 2018 by CantCookWithoutYou
Hi I cooked the Oriental Chicken yesterday. It tasted great if a bit salty but the sauce was very thin when I expected it to thicken up judging by the picture in the book. I used boneless chicken thighs from my wonderful butcher and dropped about ten minutes from the time as they seemed cooked. I tried reducing the sauce but didn't change. Did I do anything wrong ? I bought Shaosing especially and thought 150ml was a lot but checked the details in my book.
No you haven’t done anything wrong. It is a thin sauce. Where it looks like a thicker sauce in the photo it is the grated ginger that’s taken on the colour of the soy sauce.
You can use reduced salt soy sauce if you prefer.
