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.

Puff Pastry Egg Tarts - 2 酥皮蛋撻

I took the opportunity to try my hands at making puff pastry from scratch when I was on vacation as the weather was quite cooling and I assumed that the dough wouldn't be sticky and messy to handle.
I could make both oil and water dough easily and there were no 'sweat and tears', LOL!  The pastries turned out nice and flaky and everybody gave their thumbs up for this dim sum, especially my dear grandnephew who asked for more!


Oil dough - Sieve the plain flour into a mixing bowl, add in the cold, cubed butter, mash with a fork and slowly combine to form a soft dough.  Wrap up with clingwrap and keep in the fridge for 30 mins.  (You can do this with a food processor if you wish),


Water dough - Sieve the plain flour into a mixing bowl, add in the slightly  beaten egg yolks, mix well, add ice cold water gradually,( you may not require the whole amount of water as too much water can make the pastry tough), mix well and form into a dough.  Wrap up with clingwrap and keep in the f…
