Chicken Chorizo with Maggi Oyster Sauce Recipe

I learned this recipe from Chef Sandy Daza and Maggi. It is a very simple chicken recipe that uses simple, affordable ingredients and Maggi Oyster Sauce to level up the flavors of the dish to match that of a Chinese restaurant (minus the expensive bill). The procedure is very simple that my son Ashton and I had fun cooking it together.

Chicken Chorizo Recipe
Serves 2-4

3 tbsp vegetable oil
2 tbsp minced garlic
1 cup sliced onion rings
3 pcs Chinese chorizo, sliced
8 pcs. chicken thigh or any favorite part
(Mommy Lace tip: Use tinola cut chicken for an even more affordable recipe)
1/4 cup Chinese cooking wine (or Japanese rice wine aka mirin)
1/3 cup water
2 tbsp Maggi Oyster Sauce
1 tbsp hoisin sauce
1/2 tbsp chili garlic sauce

As you can see, most of the ingredients are available in your kitchen. I do stock hoisin sauce and oyster sauce all the time. Instead of Chinese cooking wine, I use mirin at home – if you don’t have this, you can buy mirin or Chinese cooking wine (and the chili garlic sauce) at the condiments or International section of the supermarket. These ingredients are very versatile and useful in the kitchen which make them worth buying.


1. Saute garlic and onion in oil using a wok. Add Chinese chorizo and saute until oil comes out of the chorizo (about a minute)
2. Move mixture on the side of the wok and add chicken meat in the middle to brown both sides. Deglaze the pan by adding Chinese wine and water.
3. Add Maggi Oyster sauce, hoisin sauce, and chili garlic sauce. Mix well.
4. Simmer for 20 minutes. Transfer into a serving plate and serve with hot rice.

After cooking, me, my son, and my husband enjoyed this Chicken Chorizo with rice. It was very tasty and has the right balance of flavors as well as nutrition. This Chicken Chorizo recipe with oyster sauce will be a regular in our home-cooked meals.

Maggi Oyster Sauce Quick Review

To be honest, it was my first time using Maggi Oyster Sauce and I am very glad it made our dish delicious – it tasted like a dish you will order from an expensive Chinese restaurant. Maggi’s Oyster Sauce has the right balance of flavor and not too salty to the taste. I also find Maggi’s oyster sauce easier to spread or mix with the rest of the ingredients. I am now using Maggi Oyster Sauce for our morning fried rice too.

Here are some tips to make cooking even easier for you:

1. Prepare all ingredients in advance – thaw the chicken if it is frozen, slice and dice all ingredients like garlic, onions, and chorizo before starting to cook.

2. Arrange the ingredients in order of use – especially if you are still learning to cook, arranging ingredients in order of use will avoid confusion and even spillage.

3. Clean as you go – tidy up your cooking area from time to time. This will reduce distraction, improve sanitation, and make cleaning up after a breeze. This improves your home cooking experience especially when involving your kids.

Remember, dishes do not have to be complicated nor expensive to be a source of happiness at home. According to Chef Sandy Daza, eating a delicious meal inspires happiness but you also create precious memories when you prepare and cook together. You create happy moments that you can always go back to. Don’t forget to try other Maggi recipes from the Maggi Philippines Facebook Page.
