Chicken and potato stew

This is one of the chicken dish that well received by my family members and also every Chinese mother know how to cook this dish. My version is super simple with just two ingredients (chicken and potato) and two main seasonings (light soy sauce and dark soy sauce).

The classic Chinese dish. This beautiful dish reminds me of my mom cooking this for our dinner but sometimes she added some mushrooms to it.

I think this should be the most "Chinese" dish of all chinese families in Malaysia!
(At 1st glance I thought you put curry powder leh...the colour is a bit brown-orang-y)
