Chicken Puff ~ Oriental 鸡肉千层酥皮


This is a 'cheat' version of chicken puff as I didn't make the rough puff pastry dough from scratch.  It was store-bought, Kawan puff pastry to be exact.  Why Oriental?   Simply because the chicken filling was cooked the Chinese way with soya and oyster sauces, plus a drizzle of sesame oil with onions and frozen peas thrown in.   They were indeed delicious and was perfect to snack on.







Recipe for Chicken Puff ~ Oriental  (鸡肉千层酥皮)

Ingredients

  • 350 gm chicken breast, cubed
  • 2 onion, cubed
  • 100 gm frozen peas
  • 3 sheets of Kawan puff pastry

Seasoning
  • 1 Tbsp light soya sauce, 1/2 Tbsp each of dark soya sauce and oyster sauce, 1/4 tsp salt, 2 tsps sugar, a dash of pepper, sesame oil and 3 tsp cornflour + 2 Tbsp water to thicken.
Method
  1. Season the chicken with the above seasoning.  Lightly fry the onions, then the chicken.  Once cooked, add in the frozen peas.  Mix in thickening and fine tune to taste.
