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

Puff Pastry Egg Tarts - 2 酥皮蛋撻

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…
