Salted Roast Chicken (盐焗鸡)

“Simple roast chicken”

It’s always a breeze to cook if you have the right equipments in your kitchen. Not giving up my wok cooking, but I liked the large oven I am having how. Less smoky kitchen, less oily stove, and still having delicious home cooked for my loved ones. Oven it!

Very simple and delicious roast meal to start with…. I had a salty roast chicken!

Roasted, or you called it baked (since my oven doesn’t come with the turner). Its simplest recipe came from my dad and mum, thanks to them, we had a such delicious meal, yet, still able to keep my kitchen clean and nice, for now. :) read more

Festive Chicken Chop


“Chicken Chop for the festive”

Just realized that I cooked slightly different chicken chop for this Christmas than last year’s. I used a different seasoning. Same MasterFoods seasoning, but am using the All Purpose seasoning and not the Steak seasoning this time. Find this yielding stronger flavor chop. So, go easy on the amount and marinating hours.

So, here you go the updates recipe, and still in time to prepare and cook this for the New Year Eve!

Serves 4
Ingredients
4 large boneless chicken thighs with skin
1 can of sliced button mushrooms, drained brine.
2 tablespoons of All Purpose Seasoning powder (from MasterFoods brand)
1 teaspoon of sugar
1 teaspoon of oyster sauce
2 tablespoons of olive oil
2 teaspoons of corn starch read more

Kiwi Mango Chicken

“Tired of sweet & sour pork dish? How about “sweet & sour” fruity chicken dish this time?!”

ZESPRI® Kiwifruit wrote to me recently, asking if I was interested to try their kiwifruit so as to create a recipe using kiwifruit. Yes, why not? I think my readers and friends would surely like to cook a dish using fresh fruits, that was my thought.

Kiwifruit, loaded with vitamin C (2X the amount of orange), dietary fibre, potassium, folate, vitamin E, carotenoids and other antioxidants. It has low GI and is low in fat, and calories (<60kcal/100g). read more

Chayote Chicken Soup (合掌瓜鸡汤)

“Quickest & simplest soup fix for yummiest & lightest taste”

Not sure why, but it seems more and more people are cooking this, Chayote (Pear Squash). In Chinese, we called it Fo Shou Gua 佛手瓜, while Cantonese called it the Hup Jeung Gua 合掌瓜.

Until l I watched a new TVB cooking program hosted by Ms Maria Cordero (again), I wasn’t sure how to cook this fruit, even though I saw it in the market umpteen times. Oh, it’s so simple to cook, actually!

To my (pleasant) surprise, it was soft and mild (to almost tasteless in a good way) to eat. Most of all, this low-sugar, low-caloric fruit makes a good and healthy soup. Oh yes, it’s very mild in taste and because of that, I pan-fried the chicken leg before placing them into the soup… I have made myself a simple and delicious soup recipe for this! Not just a soup, it’s a 1-dish meal where I could eat the protein (chicken), the green (Chayote) and drink the nourishing soup! Trust me, you (especially the weight watcher) will like it, too. read more

Hainanese Chicken Rice (海南鸡饭)

“Secret recipe from dad & mum!”

Hainanese chicken rice seems to be one of the most popular local food in Singapore. This is a Singaporean cuisine, of course. It is so well known that almost every visitor and tourist to Singapore would eat it at least once.

To me, I like to cook chicken rice meal at home, especially if I have guests to feed. This is one of the economical yet presentable cookings to impress them.

My cooking, considerably an heirloom recipe, was passed down from my parents. It’s one of their best dishes which they used to cook for business in the older days. And now, their recipe was adapted with mainly homecooked flavour, lessen the addition of MSG! Yes, for business purpose, many sellers add MSG to maximize the flavour of the dish, especially the rice. Without MSG, the rice would not be as tasty as it has to be. However, I have chicken granule and other condiments to back me up, making it tasty enough. read more
