Chicken Pot Pie


This is a cheat version of Chicken Pie with an Oriental twist.  I call it 'cheat' because the pastry is store bought, 'Oriental', as  I cooked the filling with Asian sauces.  This was our family's dinner and all of us enjoyed it thoroughly...... another one-dish meal!








This is super easy to prepare.  All you need to do is just cook the filling with whatever you have on hand, scoop it onto the ramekins and top up with a layer of  Kawan puff pastry, touch up with some 'ICI', dump them in the oven, turn on the timer and just wait patiently ...........  Here's how to do it!

Recipe for Chicken Pie

Ingredients

  • 500 gm chicken breast, diced
  • 200 gm onions, diced
  • 140 gm canned peas
  • 2.1/2 tsp cornflour + 1.1/2 Tbsp water to thicken
  • 1 egg lightly beaten + a pinch of salt to glaze
  • 3/4  cup water
Seasoning
  • 1.1/2 Tbsp oyster sauce
  • 1 tsp each of :  light soya sauce, sugar and sesame oil
  • 1/2  tsp salt
  • 1/2  tsp chicken granules
  • 3/4  tsp dark soya sauce
Preparation
  1. Dice up the chicken meat and marinate with the seasoning.
  2. Heat up some oil in a pan and fry the diced onions till fragrant.  Add in the seasoned meat, stir-fry, add in the water and chicken granules.
  3. Once meat is cooked, test for taste, toss in the drained peas.  Mix in cornflour thickening and set aside.
  4. Divide the mixture between 4 ramekins.
  5. Cover each ramekin with a piece of pastry, press the edges around the ramekin to seal.  Prick holes on the surface with a fork for air to escape during baking.
  6. Apply egg glaze.
  7. Bake in a preheated oven @ 200 deg C for about 20 mins. till pastry is puffed out and light golden brown in colour.
  8. Serve hot with some salad or have it on its own.

Wool Roll Bread ~ 毛线球面包

  Wool Roll Bread ... its popularity is booming and bursting the seams of Facebook and Instagram.  Every day you see new posts of it, with different ways of making it as well as an endless assortment of fillings to experiment with.  I too have been browsing the internet to research these various methods and their outcomes.  What is it that makes Wool Woll Bread so crazily popular?  To satisfy my curiosity, I tried my hand at making it and was very happy with the results.  I love seeing the bread strands when I pull apart the bread to reveal the meat floss filling and I enjoy how soft and chewy the bread is.  Jump on the bandwagon, folks, you won't regret it!

Marble Butter Cake ~ 大理石牛油蛋糕

This is one of the most popular Butter Cake recipes among fellow bloggers and I've read many reviews about this cake.  Credit must be given to Mrs S K Ng for so generously sharing her recipe.   This cake is moist, fluffy, soft, not overly sweet and the texture is just right.  Must admit that this is the best butter cake that I've ever tasted.  I tweaked the recipe to make a Marble Butter Cake instead.

Coffee Walnut Butter Cake ~ 咖啡核桃牛油蛋糕

  This Coffee Walnut Butter cake recipe is adapted from my Marble Butter Cake which I posted some time back.  I tweaked it a bit to accommodate blended walnuts, added some coffee and Kahlua liqueur.  As always, Mrs. Ng's butter cake recipe never fails and this cake is soft and moist and indeed yummy.
