Honey Lemon Drumettes ~ 蜂蜜柠檬鸡翅根

This is a very simple chicken recipe for working mothers.  All you need to do is just marinate the chicken with some seasoning, add on honey and lemon, then pan-fry.  But for better flavour, it's best to marinate it longer, preferably overnight.  I just pan-fry the chicken keeping aside the marinade to make a gravy to go with the chicken and mushrooms and a greens on the side.

Bittergourd Pork Tail Bones Soup ~ 苦瓜猪尾骨汤

Salted Egg Yolk Seafood Tofu ~ 咸蛋黄海鲜豆腐

During this MCO or Movement Control Order 'lock down' period, my friends and I have been sharing pictures of what we cook daily.   Well, we inspire each other and at least I picked up some tips on how to cook certain dishes which I had never thought of trying.  I was inspired by a friend who showed a picture of her 'Salted egg yolk Seafood Tofu'!  Since I have some seafood tofu stocked up, and since no deepfrying is required, I gave this a shot.  This dish is quick to prepare and very tasty.  I guess whatever is cooked with salted egg yolk is yummy and delicious.

Loh Mai Kai ~ 糯米雞 (Glutinous rice steamed with chicken)

Loh Mai Kai is the transliteration of  糯米雞 in Cantonese, meaning glutinous rice steamed with chicken.  It is a common dish in any dim sum restaurant and you can't miss it. Some of them are served in a small steel bowls while some are steamed in alluminium foil cups.  The glutinous rice is steamed with chicken, mushroom and Chinese sausage, but in my recipe today, I had to omit Chinese sausage as I wasn't able to get it during this 'lock down' period.  Hence, I substituted with some dried shrimps and dried scallops.  The taste of the glutinous rice is just wonderful as it has been infused with these flavours.  It's best to use drumsticks, deboned or with bones, absolutely your personal preference.  You can enjoy Loh Mai Kai for breakfast or brunch or whenever you feel like it.
