Chicken chop with oyster sauce


Whipped up this one-dish meal for dinner recently.  Added an egg after reading some article regarding the goodness of egg yolk which is the healthiest part of the egg.  There are also indications that eating whole eggs actually raise the good HDL cholesterol.  After all, the yolk contains much of the food that the chick depends on for growth.  Check out this site if you want to know more about eggs.



Very easy, just pan fry the marinated chicken pieces, prepare the gravy, wash and chop up the veggie, and dinner is ready!


Looks delicious ...... I like the slightly burnt part of the chicken, yummy!

Ingredients
  • 3 chicken legs, remove the skin and debone.  (Keep the bones for stock)
  • 1 Japanese cucumber, peeled and sliced

  • 2 tsp oyster sauce
  • 1/2 tsp sugar
  • 1/4 tsp dark soya sauce

Preparation

  5. Very lovely meal...mmmm. Cheah, I think it would be awesome with a slice of your homemade bread. Yes, eggs are good but best if eaten raw if you can. I remember when we were young, my mom made us eat raw eggs when we had fever. These days I still eat lots of eggs but usually very very soft boiled.

    I've heard of people eating raw eggs, must be freshly laid, right? When I was little, remembering eating hot rice mixed with a raw egg and some lard, so aromatic!

  12. It looks delicious and I'm starving now especially after the heavy rain. Can't resist the oyster sauce gravy. It's certainly a good combination with the chicken. I really love it, not too oily. Good work.

Matcha/Green Tea Pound Cake ~ 抹茶磅蛋糕

I was so pleased when I saw the nice green colour of this pound cake after I removed it from the oven, for true to the recommendation by the lady at the shop where I usually get my ingredients, she assured me that I won't be disappointed.  Yes, it is green and not pale or brownish.  The homemade red bean paste complimented well with the green tea and the cake stayed moist and soft even after three days kept in an airtight container, refrigerated.
