Mock Buffalo Chicken (Happy Call)

Why I call it 'mock'? Because it's definitely not the seasonings used to cook buffalo chicken
But why the name then? Because that is where the inspiration came from LOL
Yes, I was craving for buffalo wings, the commonly found in the US, finger licking delicious
But too bad my kids do not really fancy, I believe it's the spiciness and smokiness part that they're not used to
So, after searching for some idea for modification, I found one recipe I was pretty convinced my kids will be able to accept. True enough, they didn't complain and enjoyed their meal :)
Here's the mock version I cooked...

This dish is seriously good eaten with hot fluffy rice. I actually increase the quantity of the sauce since my kids love mixing it with the rice :)
Here's the recipe with my modification...
What you need:
750g chicken parts
(I used 1 free range chicken, cut into parts)
juice of a large lime
3 cloves of garlic
1 inch old ginger
1 inch yellow ginger
3/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp ground pepper
1 medium onion, sliced
12 tbsp (about 170g) tomato ketchup
3 tbsp sweet dark soya sauce
3/4 tsp chicken stock powder
1/2 tsp ground pepper
1 1/2 tbsp sugar
1 1/2 tbsp butter
  1. Grind together garlic, both gingers til smooth
  2. Rinse chicken and rub all over with lime juice. Add in garlic and ginger mixture, salt and pepper
  3. Rub all over evenly inside out until all chicken parts covered and set aside for a few hours (ideally overnight)
  4. Slightly oil Happy Call pan and arrange marinated chicken on it. Cook chicken over low fire til browned both sides. Transfer chicken to a bowl and clean the pan with kitchen towel
  5. Heat butter on the same pan and sautee onion til soft and fragrant. Add in tomato ketchup, dark soya sauce, chicken stock powder, pepper, and sugar, mix well. Test the taste and adjust accordingly
  6. Add in chicken and mix well til all coated with sauce
  7. Simmer for about 5 mins each side over low fire and transfer to a serving plate
  8. Serve immediately with hot fluffy white rice
