Bread Chicken


Kampar Bread Chicken ..................No, no, this emerged from the kitchen of No-Frills Recipes, a wholesome one-dish meal, a little bit spicy, but sumptous, suitable for lunch or dinner


this is the Chicken Curry that I made with the A+1 meat curry paste, and in the background is the Kenwood breadmaker which helped me with the dough for the bread



the A+1 meat curry paste, it's spicy, so I used only half the paste




the Chicken Curry wrapped up in 2 layers of parchment paper, ready to be 'hidden' in the dough



the bread is all done now ....................'Open Sesame'............like a blooming lotus flower, slowly opening up its petals, revealing ............


what's the 'hidden treasure' ....................mmmmmm.............aromatic Curry Chicken!


what are you waiting for, .......... dunk it in .................. Enjoy ..... Yummy

  5. You are really hardworking! I really need to bring out my breadmaker and make some buns. (I had thought of a recipe for me to try out for months already and still sitting in file, I really need to kick myself in the butt for being so lazy).

  6. With the advent of the breadmaker, it certainly helps in cutting down all the kneading and waiting. I'm sure your girls will love freshly baked buns.

  7. Your bread chicken looks so much like the Kampar bread chicken that I have tasted. The color of your curry looks more appetising. Hope to try it one day.

  8. Hi Rotterdam ICON
    I think my curry tastes much better than the Kampar bread chicken, ahem .... the last time I had it in Ipoh the curry was very gluey, not 'lemak' with coconut milk, but as though they've added cornstarch to it and I saw how the cook wrapped up the chicken, so I got a slight idea. Seems Kam Ling restaurant has a better version of this bread chicken, but never tried it.

Chicken Floss Cake ~ 鸡肉松蛋糕

It's normal to find buns coated with meat floss in any bakery, but yet to find a meat floss coated piece of cake.  I saw this Chicken Floss Cake on youtube and was eager to give this a shot.  The recipe is quite similar to a chiffon cake and I was curious to find out the taste which should be slightly sweetish and saltish.  Wouldn't it be weird, I wonder.  But it turned out that the taste is rather unique with a light and soft texture and my family members gave me a thumbs up and asked for more!

Lavender lemon cookies ~ 薰衣草柠檬曲奇

These dainty looking Lavender lemon cookies have a subtle taste of lavender, not too much for I used  fresh leaves instead of dried flowers.  They are buttery, taste like shortbread with a light floral aroma.  They are simple, cute and sure to impress.  Try gifting them at a Christmas cookie swap or great to give as a gift during the coming festive season.
