Honey Roasted Chicken Leg


This sumptuous chicken dish is very easy to prepare.  All you need to do is to marinate the chicken leg, preferably overnight, then dump them in the oven the next day and in a jiffy, dinner is ready!




Marinate the chicken legs with the seasoning, preferably overnight.   Place marinated chicken legs onto an alluminium lined baking tray before putting them into the oven.



These chicken legs are yummy and I simply love the slightly singed parts ............... mmmmmm!

Ingredients
  • 2 chicken legs with skin intact
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp light soya sauce
  • 1/2 tsp dark soya sauce
  • 3 tsps honey
  • 4 pips garlic - crushed
  • Freshly ground black pepper, amount as desired
  • 1 capsicum - cut into rings
  • 1 Japanese cucumber - sliced
  • Some fresh greens
Preparation
  1. Wash clean the chicken legs, make 2 slits on them and rub in some salt.
  2. Add in honey, black pepper, light and dark soya sauce, crushed garlic.  Turn and mix them once in a while, then keep refrigerated overnight.
  3. Take them out an hour or so before roasting.
  4. Arrange them, devoid of marinade, skin up, on a baking tray lined with alluminium foil.
  5. Bake in preheated oven @ 220 deg C for about 10 mins, then turn them over to the other side and continue baking for another 10 mins.  Turn again to brown the skin for another 15 mins. or till meat is cooked thoroughly.  Insert a fork into the thickest part of the chicken leg and if no blood comes out, then the it is cooked.
  6. Meanwhile thicken the remaining marinade with 1/2  tsp cornflour.
  7. Remove chicken legs onto serving plate, garnish with the vegetables.  Spoon over the gravy onto the chicken legs.
  8. Serve hot.

Almond Butter Cake ~ 杏仁牛油蛋糕

This is a delicious, moist, old-fashioned butter cake full of almondy flavour.  It looks pretty with the almond flaky top, certainly a crowd pleaser.   This cake is best consumed on the day it's freshly baked because of the crunchy nutty top but leftovers can still be kept chilled and reheated before serving.

Pandan Angku Kuih ~ 班兰叶龟糕

I've never thought of making Angku Kuih or Red Tortoise Cake simply because it's so readily available in my daily market place.  But there have been so many posts of this traditional kuih by my fellow food bloggers and  they look so cute and beautiful that I just cannot resist the temptation of not trying my hands at it.

I must admit that making this kuih can be rather tedious and the amount of work can really make your head spin.  But if you prepare the mung bean filling a day ahead, then it does help to lighten your work quite a fair bit.  For all the  effort, these Pandan Angku Kuih came out beautifully.  To see how the kuih will be like the next day, I kept some in a container at room temperature.  To my surprise the skin of the kuih stayed soft till late the next day.  I didn't have to steam them again.  All I can say is that my efforts paid off handsomely and I'm so pleased.  Now, I've no qualms  experimenting this Angku Kuih with different flavours :)
