Grilled black pepper Chicken


Whipped this simple chicken dish for dinner last weekend.  Very easy to prepare, more flavourful if the chicken had been marinated overnight, which I did.



Heat up the grill pan with a little bit of oil, once it's hot, dump in the chicken pieces devoid of marinade.
Stirfry the colourful capsicums and onion with a bit of oil, dish up.  In the same pan add in the chicken marinade, sauces,  water, thickening and you're done!









You are most welcome to join me ....... just dig in!

Ingredients
  • 3 chicken legs, deboned and skin removed
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 2 capsicums, cut into wedges
Seasoning for the chicken
  • 1  Tbsp oyster sauce
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1/2  tsp light soya sauce
  • 1/2  tsp salt
  • 1/8  tsp pepper
  • 4 pips garlic smashed
Black pepper sauce
  • 1/2  tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 1  Tbsp oyster sauce
  • 1/4  cup water
  • 1  tsp cornflour + 1.1/2  Tbsp water to thicken
Preparation
  1. Marinate the chicken legs with the above seasoning for a few hours, or preferably overnight in the refrigerator.  Take them out at least an hour before cooking.
  2. Heat up a grill pan with a little bit of oil and once the pan is red hot, add in the chicken pieces, reduce the heat to maintain the temperature, and let the chicken cook  for a few minutes.  Leave any marinade in the bowl for later use.   Once the edges of the meat start to brown, then flip over to the other side and grill for a further few minutes.
  3. Dish up onto serving plates.
  4. In another pan, heat up some oil and toss in the onion slices and capsicums, stir-fry and dish out.
  5. In the same pan, put in the chicken marinade, add in the ground black pepper, oyster sauce and water, let it simmer.  Fine tune to taste and add in the thickening.
  6. Arrange the onions and capsicums onto the serving plates with the chicken pieces and pour over the sauce.
  7. Serve immediately and enjoy.

    Thanks for visiting my blog. I didn't really time the cooking. I used a grill pan, so once the red indicator on the pan is red hot, then lower the heat to medium low and put in the meat. Just watch it and once the edges of the meat are slightly brown, then you can flip over to the other side. Yes, it should be medium to medium low.

Chocolate chip raisin butter cupcake ~ 巧克力葡萄干牛油蛋糕

I tweaked the Marble Butter Cake recipe to make these delicious cupcakes for breakfast and there were some leftovers for tea as well.  I managed to get 17 cupcakes from the recipe and was very pleased that there were no cracks on them after being baked.   My family members were equally pleased as the cupcakes weren't overly sweet as I had reduced the amount of sugar from the recipe.
