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.

Yam Puff ~ 'Wu Kok'

This is one of the must-have items whenever we go for have dim-sum ...... 'Wu Kok' or Yam dumplings.  Initially I had a hard time struggling with the soft and sticky dough in the hot and stuffy kitchen, but fortunately after chilling it in the fridge for 50 mins., it could be 'man-handled' quite easily!  Phew, not too bad as this is my first attempt!

Mixed Fruit Bread ~ 杂果面包

Homemade bread is always more nutritious than those bought from the supermarkets.  For one I don't add any bread improver or preservatives to my bread making.  Store bought ones may be fresh but they have loads of preservatives added to prolong their shelf life.  When I make bread I can control the ingredients that I want to put into my bread and I can customise the flavour and I find that kneading the dough can be quite therapeutic too!

Yoghurt Fruitcake

T is the festive season again and the all-time favourite for X'mas is undoubtedly the ubiquitous fruit cake.  This Yoghurt Fruitcake caught my eye when I was browsing through a Food and Travel magazine.  As I've never baked a fruit cake with yoghurt before, I was very eager to try.
