“It’s our ritual to cook this chicken chop for Christmas, I would still add a twist to my already-good recipe.”
Chicken chop for this Christmas Eve was a little bit simpler and quicker to cook as I was out to run errand urgently the whole day. Only managed to fix the meal the last minute, I had to whip up our dinner within an hour. And, this is what I had here.
It was real quick and simple to cook this chicken chop, all I had to do was to get all the ingredients from supermarket first. Making mashed Kudzu root was my first attempt to create something new in place of potato.
Yes, having on diet to shed away the final round of my baby weight for the past few months, I learnt to eat low carb food. This is one of the dishes I have learnt to make, to replace high carb ingredients, once in awhile.
You may call this a “toast”, “pancake”, or “Rosti”. It’s made of mashed cauliflower as its main. I liked it a lot as it’s just yummy and doesn’t taste like vegetable. Even my toddler son ate it. To me, it resembled a cheesy pancake meal. :)
“Enjoy the ‘sinful’ comfort food without guilt now”
Often we liked the canned luncheon meat (or you called it lunch meat/ SPAM), for its remarkably delicious taste and crispness after pan-fried, but for many luncheon meat lovers, you know you can’t have it much or too often due to the preservative, high sodium content, flavoring and MSG in it. You won’t like to give it to your children as well. So, how about a homemade one?! Some homemade version where salt content is adjustable, for a preservative and flavoring free luncheon meat you gonna make at home. :)
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!
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
Learnt this from the new TVB cooking series hosted by Maria. It was a pretty good show as I learnt a lot of tips in cooking and selecting better food ingredients.
This is one of the dishes I think is the easiest and simplest to follow. However, it was rather bland in taste for the first time I tried it.
In my second attempt, I adapted the recipe by adding some seasoning to it. Yes, it loses the original intention of simplest recipe. To make it even better, no choice, you can either stick to its simplicity or to impress your diners even more. :)
