Earlier this year, I said that one of my goals this year is to explore and learn to cook more home style chinese dishes and curries. Tomato chicken is one that I remembered tasting it when I was younger but have never since cooked it or had it at home again. My hubby seem to think that it is more common in Malaysia than in Singapore-which could be the reason why.
I experimented and came up with this- hubby thinks it is more similar to what he remembers it to be. What do you think? I used a mixture of tinned and fresh tomato for the tangy taste. It did has some heat from the chili I added which I quite like.
The thing about learning about home cooking is that.... is there ever a wrong answer? :p However, if you have cooked this dish, let me know what can I do to improve it. OR do you think it's more common in Malaysia than Singapore? (you can nearly hear the line of debate in my household don't you?!)
