Chicken, Shrimp and Tofu in Soy Sauce

I was craving a Chinese Indonesian dish called Nasi Bakmoy - Rice with chicken, shrimp and tofu in soy sauce. However, since I was in a hurry and feeling a bit lazy, I decided to cut corners and this is my simplified version.

2 chicken breast meat
2 chicken thigh meat
4 cup of water
1/4 lb of shrimp (de-shelled, de-veined and cut in half)
2 packages of medium firm tofu, cut into cubes
4 garlic cloves, minced
3 tablespoon soy sauce
3 tablespoon sweet soy sauce
1 teaspoon of white pepper
2 stalks green onion, chopped

  • Boil the chicken until cooked, cut into cubes and save some of the chicken broth
  • Stir fry the minced garlic until fragrant, add in the chicken, shrimp and tofu cubes
  • Add in the rest of the ingredients except the green onion and mix well carefully
  • Add in 2 cups of the chicken broth and cook all on medium heat until the liquid reduce by half
  • Add the chopped green onion in the last minute of cooking
  • Serve over rice and sprinkle fried shallots on top


  1. WOW (impressed look). Your tofu dish looks so yummy.

    Here I bought a sauce pack for Sauce for Mapo Tofu so as to skip all the seasonings! and i will try this friday after work.
