Black pepper salted baked chicken




I made this black pepper salted baked chicken over the weekend and it's a bit similar to our famous Ipoh Salted baked chicken but this is with added black pepper.  It's very simple to prepare as the ingredients are all pre-mixed and all you need to do is to marinate the chicken and then either bake or steam it.  The pre-mix spices come with a piece of foil and with instructions on the back of the packet as well.






I used 3 free range chicken legs and 2 wings.



When I made this the first time, I just marinated the chicken and steamed it.  It wasn't so tasty, steamed.  So this time around, I marinated the chicken, kept it in the fridge overnight and after steaming, I grilled the chicken for about 8 mins. on each side and it was just ........... heavenly!  Very aromatic!

During our recent blogger meet up, Elin of Elinluv's Tidbits Corner gave each of us a packet of the original Ipoh salted chicken spice mix which is without black pepper.  Haven't made that yet but will do so soon.  Do hop over to her blog to take a peep at her yummy chicky post!




I'm submitting this post to  Muhibbah Malaysian Monday hosted by 3 Hungry Tummies.

  7. That looks very delicious. I thought it was fried. Good idea to steam and then grill. Does it taste salty? Must be really good with rice.

    1. Not very salty, if you find the spices too much for your needs, reduce it and keep the balance for future use. And, I shredded the leftover to make a sandwich.

Fried 'Nian Gao' ~ Sticky rice cake ~ CNY 2010

'Nian Gao' in Mandarin or 'Nin Ko' in Cantonese is a must-have item during CNY.  This sticky glutinous rice cake is symbolic as it carries a homonym that sounds like 'year~high/tall'.  For business people eating this will link them to prosperity and wealth and working people will look forward to career advancement, promotion. Slice them up when they're still soft, keep them in containers and they can be stored in the fridge for months. I normally steam and dip them in freshly grated young coconut mixed with some salt or just fry with beaten egg.  But this time around, I've decided to be a bit more 'challenging' and try out Elin's recipe.  Thanks, Elin of  Elinluv's Tidbits Corner   for sharing!

Abalone Soup ~ CNY 2011

Hi, I'm back!  Made this Abalone Soup for the reunion dinner and the soup was really delicious.  Abalone is 'Bao Yu' in Cantonese, 'Bao' sounds like 'guaranteed' and 'Yu' sounds like 'excess' so put together it sounds like 'guaranteed excess'!   Now, that's something to look forward to, to usher in the New Year!  I used fresh abalone and it was my first experience handling this and thought that it would be a daunting task.  Surprisinlgy it was not to be and removing them from their shells and cleaning them weren't that difficult after all.
