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!

  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.

Puff Pastry Egg Tarts - 2 酥皮蛋撻

I took the opportunity to try my hands at making puff pastry from scratch when I was on vacation as the weather was quite cooling and I assumed that the dough wouldn't be sticky and messy to handle.
I could make both oil and water dough easily and there were no 'sweat and tears', LOL!  The pastries turned out nice and flaky and everybody gave their thumbs up for this dim sum, especially my dear grandnephew who asked for more!


Oil dough - Sieve the plain flour into a mixing bowl, add in the cold, cubed butter, mash with a fork and slowly combine to form a soft dough.  Wrap up with clingwrap and keep in the fridge for 30 mins.  (You can do this with a food processor if you wish),


Water dough - Sieve the plain flour into a mixing bowl, add in the slightly  beaten egg yolks, mix well, add ice cold water gradually,( you may not require the whole amount of water as too much water can make the pastry tough), mix well and form into a dough.  Wrap up with clingwrap and keep in the f…

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!

Char Siew Pau ~ 蒸叉烧包

I have been itching to try out a Pau recipe and vaguely remember that I did make it once, long, long ago.  So I  got hold of my old file of recipes and finally managed to retrieve it.  I did it recently and must say that I'm satisfied with the result.  The texture of the Pau was soft and a bit chewy, wholesome and filling too.  Naturally, they didn't look so nice and round like the ones sold in the dim sum restaurants, but nonetheless I think homemade ones can be just as delectable as well.
