Honey Roasted Chicken Leg


This sumptuous chicken dish is very easy to prepare.  All you need to do is to marinate the chicken leg, preferably overnight, then dump them in the oven the next day and in a jiffy, dinner is ready!




Marinate the chicken legs with the seasoning, preferably overnight.   Place marinated chicken legs onto an alluminium lined baking tray before putting them into the oven.



These chicken legs are yummy and I simply love the slightly singed parts ............... mmmmmm!

Ingredients
  • 2 chicken legs with skin intact
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp light soya sauce
  • 1/2 tsp dark soya sauce
  • 3 tsps honey
  • 4 pips garlic - crushed
  • Freshly ground black pepper, amount as desired
  • 1 capsicum - cut into rings
  • 1 Japanese cucumber - sliced
  • Some fresh greens
Preparation
  1. Wash clean the chicken legs, make 2 slits on them and rub in some salt.
  2. Add in honey, black pepper, light and dark soya sauce, crushed garlic.  Turn and mix them once in a while, then keep refrigerated overnight.
  3. Take them out an hour or so before roasting.
  4. Arrange them, devoid of marinade, skin up, on a baking tray lined with alluminium foil.
  5. Bake in preheated oven @ 220 deg C for about 10 mins, then turn them over to the other side and continue baking for another 10 mins.  Turn again to brown the skin for another 15 mins. or till meat is cooked thoroughly.  Insert a fork into the thickest part of the chicken leg and if no blood comes out, then the it is cooked.
  6. Meanwhile thicken the remaining marinade with 1/2  tsp cornflour.
  7. Remove chicken legs onto serving plate, garnish with the vegetables.  Spoon over the gravy onto the chicken legs.
  8. Serve hot.

Steamed egg with minced pork ~ 猪肉蒸水蛋

This is a super comforting home-cooked dish which requires only a few ingredients.   An easy to go recipe, I added minced pork to give the dish more volume.   Kids as well as adults will love the silken smooth egg interspersed with bits of juicy meat.   Great to serve over hot rice!

Pandan Ombre Butter Cake ~ 班蘭牛油蛋糕

Whenever I want to make a butter cake, Mrs. Ng's butter cake recipe will come to my mind.  Her recipe is foolproof and you can use it as a basic recipe and play around with variations of flavours to your liking.  Today, I'm sharing with you a Pandan Ombre Butter Cake.  I've used pandan paste instead of pandan juice as I need to have a distinct green colour to bring out the 'Ömbre' effect, which is from a darker to a lighter shade of green.  I'm pleased with the result and the texture of this cake is soft and moist and it still stays in this manner even after the third day, kept in an airtight container.

Hawaiian Biscuits ~ 夏威夷饼

I was introduced to this Hawaiian Biscuit by a friend who bought this for me to try.  I was curious about the name and was wondering what's so 'Hawaiian' about these biscuits.  I understood, after the first bite of a Macadamia nut.  So the 'Hawaiian' thing is the Macadamia nut.  Since I have some lotus paste left after the mooncake festival, thought I'd give this a try.  I used the recipe for the pastry from my 'Lo  Por Paeng/Wife Biscuit' post and just wrap up some lotus paste with some Macadamia nuts.  This is a yummy biscuit to be enjoyed at any time of the day and the biscuits stayed crispy even on the fourth day, kept in an air-tight container.
