Pan Fried Marinated Chicken Pieces

WB is a meat eater and I have to scratch my head to think what and how to cook a meat dish for him. I normally have seafood and veggies when eating in. Not that seafood is healthy but I LOVE fish and prawns, crabs and clams....wish I could add more of seafood dishes into my menu :p   When I eat out, I will indulge in meat dishes for sure :p for the restaurant prepares better meat dishes than yours truly.

I have some ready cut chicken pieces in the freezer.  Thawed it and marinade the pieces with pounded shallots and ginger.  Add in oyster sauce and cooking wine and a pinch of salt for extra taste. Marinate the pieces for at least 2 hours or overnight for better flavor and taste. I love this preparation and most important WB must love it..for he will the one eating them.
