One of my readers was asking for a recipe of 密汁鸡 (Pronounciation in Mandarin as “Mi Zhi Ji”) in my FB Fanclub. Without her further elaboration on the dish title, I assumed she wanted the honeyed chicken. However, I had an urge of making the honey char siew flavour version instead, last weekend. So, I cooked this for this time, and I promised to cook the other honey chicken next time, ok (smile)?
Well, it’s still worth cooking this recipe even if it’s not the desired recipe as it was so delicious! For the sake of the appetite of your kids, cook this, anyway. They will certainly love the sweet savoury taste!read more
“When ‘East meets the West’ Chicken Chop… Check it out!”
It was unexpectedly tasty.. I loved Western food, and was pretty head cracking for how to make my cooking much more impressive than usual, just for the special occassion like Christmas celebration.
I was just trying out casually, without any firmer clue in mind, I used ‘common sense’ to do the seasoning on my chicken chop, and hoped it will not taste too far out from imagining. To play even safer, and also worried the taste of my Western dishes wouldn’t be good enough for the meal, I even bought an instant mushroom and white wine sauce packet from the store, thought this savoury sauce (which I have tried before) could go along with my chicken chop, just in case the chop tasted too bland :p..read more
“A simple and flavoursome chicken dish that’s perfect for your weeknight meals”
Look for a bottle of XO sauce from the shelves in groceries department, an easy superlicious ‘chef-class’ chicken dish will be at your finger tips.
XO sauce is never made of XO liqour. It is named as XO simply refers its qualitied ingredients used. This premium bottle is filled with seasoned dried scallops that made it as valuable as XO. This sauce is not spicy at all, its pleasant briny taste simply brings up the full flavour of your dish without any extra work needed.
Of course, it never costs a penny to get a bottle of this. I bought it at about S$25 per bottle. There are many different brands in the market, price ranging from $15.90 to $30. I guess it’s all depends on the grade and quality of the ingredients used. Not difficult to find, it’s available in most Asian supermarkets. As for Singapore residents, find this at NTUC Fairprice, Cold Storage, and even neighbourhood mini marts.read more
I asked my friends and fans, in My Wok Life FaceBook Club, if they would like to learn some French recipes, and here I am going to share my experience and recipe of simple French dishes, besides those I learnt at Palate Sensations.
For a Chinese cook, like me, to cook French cuisine at home was an unique cooking experience. I enjoyed the process, and the end result (the dish), too.
As I mentioned before, French cuisine uses lots of herbs and butter, to bring up the best flavour of French dish, the same goes to this dish I cooked. I liked its buttery sauce, with a hint of white wine. Between oregano and basil herbs, I chose oregano. The fragrance of oregano complements not only fish dishes, adding oregano into this chicken dish promotes the aroma of this chicken dish. But I am sure basil herbs will yield the same effect of another great flavour, too. If you like, try using it, and do let me know, ok (smile)?read more
“Impress your guests with this quick and easy curry chicken and egg goodies during your open house or friends’ visit!”
Curry chicken is a common spicy Indian cuisine across Asia countries. Asian loves spicy food, and Singaporean is always so fascinated by this fabulous curry dish. We have our own version of curry chicken, whereby its gravy is more ‘watery’. Indeed, we like to drench the bread, especially french loaf, into curry sauce, eating the loaf with curry dipping as a meal just by its own. Having more gravy in the curry chicken dish, we can even pour the curry sauce onto a plate of fried bee hoon (rice noodles) or fried rice to complement the dryness of the fried bee hoon/ rice.read more
“Express Chicken Soup with Chinese Herbal Spices from Seah’s, to keep your loved ones at their best at all time!”
Some might find Chinese soup too bland for the palate. Its taste has been described as drinking “plain water”, as Chinese soup is always cooked watery (not in thick consistency), and it does not taste creamy. You may realise, Chinese soup is often taste subtle and light (smile). I love Chinese soup, so as my family!
Tonight’s not any soup recipe boiling from scratch, nor it needed long hours boiling. So, one of these great choices you may consider for express and simple soup cooking even on busy weeknights is the Seah’s herbal spice for chicken soup! Taste of this chicken soup cooked with Seah’s herbal spices was fairly good, especially for how quick it was. Unlike most instant packet spices, this won’t make you feel thirsty after taste.read more
