Quick Chicken Stew

This is my versatile go-to chicken dish for days when I'm out of ideas of what to cook or when I'm just plain lazy and in short of time.    
Chicken pieces - about 1 kg,
Garlic 1Tbs,
Ginger 1cm,
Dried Chillies 5pieces (more if you prefer more spicy heat),
Sweet Taucheong 1Tbs,
Oyster Sauce 1Tbs,
Light Soya Sauce 1Tbs,  
a dash of Tsao Tsing Wine (if prefered),
Salt & Pepper - Season to your taste.       

How to Cook:
Heat 1 Tbs of cooking oil in a wok or deep wide pan and saute garlic, ginger & chillies till fragrant but not burnt. Add chicken pieces and fry till nice & golden. Add the oyster sauce, light soya sauce & Tsao Tsing wine. Pour in  about half a cup of water and let it simmer  for 15 mins or till sauce is a little thicker. Throw in the leeks half-way thru simmering and you may also add whatever veg you fancy ie. broccoli, carrots etc. Season with salt & pepper. Done! Easy peasy.
