Honey Sesame Chicken




This is a fuss-free chicken dish, very easy to prepare with no batter or deep frying involved.  It's just marinated chicken fried till semi-dry and coated with a sauce which is merely honey, light soya sauce with some salt and pepper thrown in.  Good to serve with  plain white rice or just have it on  its own.......I did!

A lot has been said about the nutrients and health benefits of adding turmeric to our diet.  Not only is turmeric a good source of manganese and iron, it also helps to lower blood triglycerides after a meal.  Moreover it helps to add more colour to a dish as you can see from this Turmeric Chicken dish which I'm sharing with you today.

Curry Chicken Puff ~ 咖哩鸡角

This is a 'cheat' version of curry puffs.  Why do I say 'cheat'?  Because the puff pastries were store bought.  It's very much easier to make these curry puffs snack with instant pastry for if I were to make the pastries from scratch it's going to be very tedious.  Also, shaping and baking them in a muffin pan is less time consuming.  Enjoy!
