Oyster sauce chicken is an oriental dish, which has a new taste and flavour of oyster. Oyster sauce is used in Chinese cuisine and Vietnamese cuisine, in soups, stir fries or as a dipping sauce and many more dishes. It is made from oysters and has a sweet taste and unique flavour. Vegetarian version is also available and is made from mushrooms. I have cooked this dish according to my taste buds. Chicken in oyster sauce is different from other dishes as in this no soya sauce is used; it has very different taste, which I liked it very much. You can cook with prawns, fish and beef with the same ingredients but only the method of cooking changes, as fish and prawns get cooked fast, you need to add them in the last instead of marinating and if it is beef, thin slices or strips need to be fried separately then added in the sauce or can marinate and fry as it can take more time. In this, I have taken boneless chicken cut into medium size chunks; you can cut it into strips also. In this I have marinated the chicken then fried it in the wok/kadai.
