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.

Mung Bean Cake ~ 绿豆糕

These Mung Bean Cakes are made with split mung beans and they can pass off as mooncakes as they are shaped using the plunger moulds for mooncakes.  I find these mung bean cakes refreshing and not so heavy as mooncakes and they are a perfect match with a cup of hot Chinese tea.
