Shiro wa Mogee: Chicken breast in white sauce over rice

Hello everyone!

I’ve been MIA for a while. I’m sure you know how that goes, life just happens! (^_^) All is well though, hope you guys are doing great too. I’ve noticed in my stats lots of people have been browsing the archives — thanks for stopping by!


Today I have another guest post from Shiro, last year she gave us that awesome Pizzafied chicken breast, remember? You can read a little bit more about her from her profile post here. She has another awesome chicken breast dish for us to day.

In her own words …

Hello everyone!

Thanks Aika for giving me the opportunity to share another recipe on your blog 🙂 I am truly honoured.

I typically make this meal at the end of a busy work day. When I get home from work, I want a good meal but it has to be quick and simple. Chicken is always my number one choice for quick easy meals. My husband loves sauces but not white sauce. So I discovered that if I first fry the chicken in lots of tomatoes, it tones down the creamy taste of white sauce.   

Start by cutting up the chicken into bite size pieces, then cook in a pot, no need to add anything at this point, just stir often and let them cook slowly in their own juices.

start with the chicken
starting with the chicken
once the chicken is cooked or the excess water dries up, add salt to taste and a cup of chopped spring onions
the crush X garlic cloves...
add four cloves of crushed garlic (you could also grate, chop or pound the garlic) and stir
how much tomato paste?
then add one tablespoon of tomato paste. Make space for it at the bottom of the pan and let it get a bit of heat before mixing it in
mix it in,.. looking yummy already!

add X chopped tomatoes
then add 2 chopped tomatoes
and x amount of soy sauce, was this the light or the dark?
and about a tablespoon of light soy sauce

 Cover and let it continue to simmer on low heat

while it continues to cook chop up some dania
in the meantime chop up some dhania
add it in
and then fold it in after 2 or 3 minutes

If the tomatoes are already tender you can take the chicken off the fire while you do the white sauce  If not, let it continue to cook on very low fire, check on it though, don’t let it dry out and burn. Now to make the white sauce.

make white sauce, step 1
melt 1 teaspoon of butter in a pan
step 2?
once the butter melts add three tablespoons of wheat flour into the pan, stir

Keep stirring till the flour cooks (starts turning colour), then stir in about a cup of milk. Remove the pan from the heat when stirring in the milk

step 3?
stirring in the milk
step four?
season the sauce with a pinch of black pepper and half a teaspoon of mixed herbs

If you leave the sauce on the cooker for too long, it becomes lumpy. When this happens, you can just sieve the sauce or blend, and add to the chicken

how I deal with the lumps?
how I deal with the lumps, then stir it in

If you had taken the chicken off the fire put it back and let it simmer in the white sauce for 3 to 4 minutes

and done!
and done!
served over white rice!
