Lemon Grass Chicken


This is a super easy dish that I prepared for dinner recently.  There's practiclly no oil in this chicken dish except for the fat from the chicken leg which is very minimal.  If you prefer a light, less oil meat dish, try this!











This is very aromatic and you can serve it with white rice or bread  ............... Enjoy!

Ingredients
  • 3 chicken legs about 600 gm, skin removed, deboned and cut into 4 pieces each
  • 12 stalks lemon grass/serai
  • 5 pips garlic
  • 12 shallots
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1.1/2  Tbsp brown sugar
  • 1.1/2  Tbsp fish sauce
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2  tsp dark soya sauce
Preparation
  1. Smash up 8 stalks of  lemon grass and slice up the remaining 4 stalks thinly, mix them into the chicken pieces.
  2. I used a garlic press to press out the shallots and garlic and mix these into the chicken as well.
  3. Add in the brown sugar, fish sauce and salt.  Mix well. (Best to marinate this overnight, keep refrigerated).
  4. Put the chicken pieces into a wok, add in the dark soya sauce, water, cook under medium to low heat.
  5. When the sauce is semi-dry, discard the crushed lemon grass and pan-fry the chicken till dry.
  6. Test for taste, dish up.
  7. Serve

Biscoff Butter Cake ~ 牛油蛋糕

The recipe for this Biscoff Butter Cake is similar to my earlier post of Marble Butter Cake, just that I added an extra ingredient which is, crushed Biscoff cookies.    Instead of mixing the crushed cookies into the batter, I just sprinkled them on top of the first layer of batter and then cover with the remaining batter.   This cake is soft and moist with good texture ..... definitely a recipe for keeps!

Salted egg yolk cookies ~ 咸蛋黄酥饼 ~ CNY 2016

Salted egg yolk recipes are getting very popular these days.  There are salted egg yolk with crabs, salted egg yolk with chicken, salted egg yolk with bittergourd and salted egg yolk bun, just to name a few.  Being the inquisitive me, I tried baking the salted egg yolk cookies just to taste what's it like.   It's quite difficult to describe the taste, it's neither totally sweet nor totally savoury, it's a blend of both which makes it unique, yet delicious.


I like the small bits of salted egg yolk in the dough.  I let the dough rest in the refrigerator for more than 2 hours and it was more pliable to handle.
