Spicy Chicken with Korean sauce


I had a look at the Korean sauces that were sitting idle in the fridge and thought what would be the outcome if I mixed them up.  I had to experiment to find out.  So, I got hold of some chicken leg, debone them, mixed in some sauces and cooked up this dish.  Family members said that they tasted somewhat like satay chicken but nodded in agreement that they were delicious :)





Recipe for Spicy Chicken with Korean sauce

Ingredients                                                                 

  • 3 chicken leg, deboned       
  • 4 pips of garlic, minced
  • 1  tsp sugar
  • 1/2  tsp salt
  • 1/2  tsp light soya sauce
  • 1/2  Tbsp honey
  • 1  Tbsp  Bulgogi sauce
  • 1.1/2  Tbsp Sunchang Ssamjang (seasoned bean paste)
  • 2.1/2  tsp lightly toasted sesame seeds
  • Sesame oil                                    
Method
  1. Cut each of the deboned chicken leg into 2 pieces.
  2. Mix in the minced garlic, sugar, salt, light soya sauce, honey, Bulgogi and Sunchang Ssamjang sauces.  Marinate for a few hours or overnight, refrigerated.
  3. Heat up a tablespoon oil in a non-stick pan, add in the chicken pieces and set aside the marinade.
  4. Pan-fry the chicken, flipping from side to side, cook till through.
  5. Take out the chicken, leave the marinade in the pan and add in the uncooked marinade.  Mix well and fine tune to taste.
  6. Return the chicken to the pan, mix in the sesame seeds and drizzle on some sesame oil.
  7. Dish out and serve with rice.

    1. Bulgogi sauce is a Korean sauce. There are Blulgogi sauce for pork as well as for beef. Two flavours, one is hot and spicy while the other is milder but it's still hot by my standard :)

Gula Melaka Kuih Talam ~ 椰香打南糕

After successfully making the  Kuih Talam  with much trial and error, I ventured into trying out making this Gula Melaka Kuih Talam.  What is gula melaka one may ask?  Simply put, it's just palm sugar made from coconut palm.  The slightly saltish top coconut layer pairs very well with the dark and intense flavour of the palm sugar from the bottom layer, and this kuih can be served for breakfast or snack on at any time of the day.

Cherry Loaf Cake ~ 樱桃蛋糕

I baked this old-fashioned Cherry Loaf using the Marble Butter cake recipe but adjusted the recipe as I only used three eggs instead of four to fit into the loaf pan.   I remember that when I was little, I was attracted by the red cherries as any other kid and would gingerly take them out and eat them first.    The cake was secondary.  This cake is soft and moist infused with the sweet glace cherries giving it a lovely combination of flavours.

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…
