Green Chilli Chicken


I have tasted this dish many, many years ago but somehow it had never crossed my mind to cook this.  But then this morning I saw quite a lot of fresh green chillies in the market place going for a fairly cheap price and  it struck me to replicate this dish ............. yummy!








This dish is not spicy but it does have a bit of 'heat' because of the green chillies which is mild but bearable. I'm sure kids will not encounter much difficulty eating this with rice.

Ingredients
  • 600 gm free-range chicken, skin removed, cut into bite size
  • 5 green chillies, seeded and cut into small pieces
  • 1 small knob young ginger, cut
  • 12 shallots - cut
  • 1.1/2  tsp tau cheong, preserved bean paste
  • 1 tsp each of :  sugar, salt and oyster sauce
  • 1/2  tsp dark soya sauce
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1.1/2  Tbsp oil
Preparation
  1. Wash the chicken pieces and season with a teaspoon salt, set aside.
  2. Blend the green chillies, garlic, shallots and ginger.
  3. Heat up the wok with the oil and saute the blended ingredients.
  4. Add in the tau cheong, dark soya sauce, oyster sauce and sugar, simmer for a while.
  5. Mix in the chicken pieces, stir-fry and add in 3/4  cup water.
  6. Cover and cook on medium low heat till chicken is tender, about 20 mins.
  7. Remove cover and let the gravy dry up a little, test for taste.
  8. Dish up on serving plate and serve hot with rice.

Double Boiled Herbal Chicken Soup

Double boiling is slow cooking ........ means to put a soup pot or any covered ceramic or steel pot inside a bigger pot, immerse in boiling water, and let the soup cook at a lower temperature.  Hence the soup is cooked from heat generated from the boiling water and not from direct heat source. Double boiling lets the soup ingredients slowly release their nutrients into the soup, thus making it tasty and wholesome.  It's a long cooking process, roughly averaging 2 to 4 hours.  The tip is not to open the cover to check on the soup as it'll bring down the temperature and affect the cooking process.  The plus point is there's little evaporation and the soup will not boil over.  The only thing is to monitor that there's enough water in the bigger pot and not let it run dry.  Of course, nowadays, the slow cooker is another alternative to double boiling, saves the hassle of checking the water level.

Herbal Jelly ~ Gui Ling Gao

H erbal Jelly ~ Gui Ling Ga o literally translated means 'Tortoise Jelly' is one of my family's favourite desserts.  It's much more economical to prepare this at home for you'll need to fork out between Rm 9 to Rm 11 for a bowl of this cooling dessert in any of those herbal tea outlets.  This soothing jelly, served chilled, is supposed to be able to help reduce our body heat, helps to get rid of toxins and is believed to be good for the skin thus culminating a healthier complexion.
