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
  1. Cook the chicken bones with 3/4 cup water  for about 1/2 an hr. to make stock.  Discard the bones.

  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.

Puff Pastry Egg Tarts - 2 酥皮蛋撻

I took the opportunity to try my hands at making puff pastry from scratch when I was on vacation as the weather was quite cooling and I assumed that the dough wouldn't be sticky and messy to handle.
I could make both oil and water dough easily and there were no 'sweat and tears', LOL!  The pastries turned out nice and flaky and everybody gave their thumbs up for this dim sum, especially my dear grandnephew who asked for more!


Oil dough - Sieve the plain flour into a mixing bowl, add in the cold, cubed butter, mash with a fork and slowly combine to form a soft dough.  Wrap up with clingwrap and keep in the fridge for 30 mins.  (You can do this with a food processor if you wish),


Water dough - Sieve the plain flour into a mixing bowl, add in the slightly  beaten egg yolks, mix well, add ice cold water gradually,( you may not require the whole amount of water as too much water can make the pastry tough), mix well and form into a dough.  Wrap up with clingwrap and keep in the f…
