Salt and Pepper Chicken ~ 椒盐鸡


I've heard of salt and pepper crabs quite often but not salt and pepper chicken.   So, when I chanced upon the recipe from Christine's Recipes, I didn't hesitate to try as the recipe was fuss-free and easy to follow.  I used chicken drumsticks instead of chicken wings and the meat was tender and succulent, perfect to serve with rice or even on its own...... finger licking good!





Recipe for Salt and Pepper ~  椒盐

    Ingredients

    • 800 gm chicken drumsticks
    • 2 pips of garlic, sliced
    • 1/4  tsp salt
    • 3/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
    • 3/4 tsp five spice powder
    • 3/4 tsp sugar
    • 1.1/4 tsp light soya sauce
    • 2 tsp Shaoxing wine
    Method
    1. Marinate the chicken with the salt, black pepper, five spice powder, sugar and light soya sauce for about 30 mins, or more.  (I marinated them overnight, kept refrigerated).
    2. Saute the garlic in a non-stick pan till fragrant, toss in the drumsticks, cook for a while, then pour in the juice from the marinade.  Turn over the drumsticks once in a while, cover and cook till tender and semi-dry.
    3. Fine tune to taste.
    4. Drizzle on the Shaoxing wine, turn off heat.
    5. Dish out onto serving plate and serve.

  8. Hi Soke Hah, whenever I see Pepper Salt Chicken, I relate it to the Taiwanese pepper salt chicken. Yours is totally a different version that does not require deep frying. I think this is more aromatic with all the marinade ingredients and is meat is juicy and tender. Sure will give this a try.

  11. Hi Cheah,
    These drumsticks look finger licking good!
    Bet the pepper, salt and 5 spice powder bring out the taste and makes it very flavorful.

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.
