Smoked Chicken



I was so happy when I saw Elin of  Elinluv's Tidbits Corner posted the recipe for Smoked Chicken.  I quickly bookmarked it as  sometimes I'm at a loss at what to prepare for dinner and this recipe comes in handy as it's simple to prepare.  This is a tasty  dish and it's finger licking good, trust me!








Recipe for Smoked Chicken  (adapted from 'here')

    Ingredients

    • 1/2 free range chicken, with skin
    • 1/2 Tbsp five spice powder
    • 1/2 tsp  freshly ground black pepper
    • 1 tsp seasalt
    • some tea leaves (I used Chinese tea leaves)
    • sugar
    Method
    1. Marinate the chicken with the five spice powder, black pepper and seasalt for a few hours.  (I did it overnight and kept in the fridge).
    2. Pan sear and cook the chicken in a non-stick pan till it's 3/4 cooked.
    3. Line a wok with a piece of foil.
    4. Sprinkle some tea leaves and sugar over the foil.
    5. Place a steamer rack over the foil.
    6. On medium heat, heat up the wok till smoke emits.
    7. Place chicken on the rack, cover and smoke for 20 mins.
    8. Turn off heat, cool chicken, cut it up and serve.

Traditional Mixed Nuts Mooncake ~ 2013

Traditional Mixed Nuts Mooncake was my dad's perennial favourite.  At that time I couldn't understand why this festive traditional mooncake was most enjoyed by the older folks.  But nowadays, I too have slowly acquired the taste for this sweet, salty and nutty variety.  These cakes are best cut in  small wedges, savoured by small delicate bites and not by the mouthfuls, and they are best enjoyed with a pot of hot Chinese tea.

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!
