Chicken in Tomato Sauce (Chinese Cuisine)

This is my favourite tomato dish that I learned from my mum. It’s a Chinese popular dish in Hong Kong. My mum used to add an ingredient to make the tomatoes taste even better. It’s a kind of homey dish that many kids like to have with rice.

Tomato is a healthy food, not very expensive and can be easily found throughout the year. Long time ago, I read an article on The World’s Healthiest Foods talking about the antioxidant function of lycopene that tomatoes contain:

“This carotenoid found in tomatoes (and everything made from them) has been extensively studied for its antioxidant and cancer-preventing properties. The antioxidant function of lycopene-its ability to help protect cells and other structures in the body from oxygen damage-has been linked in human research to the protection of DNA (our genetic material) inside of white blood cells. Prevention of heart disease has been shown to be another antioxidant role played by lycopene.” – from “Tomatoes” by The World’s Healthiest Foods.

It’s really encouraging me to use tomatoes more regularly in my cooking. Sometimes I just eat them raw, mix them in salad or cook them in soup. Sometimes I cook tomatoes with egg, sometimes with meat. Here’s one of my family’s favourite dish of tomatoes, Chicken in Tomato Sauce.

When it comes to cooking tomatoes in Chinese way, I like to adapt my mother’s method, adding brown sugar slab (aka brown sugar in pieces 片糖) to make the sauce. The kind of brown sugar would balance the sour taste of tomatoes and produce fantastic results.
