Spicy Chicken with Korean sauce


I had a look at the Korean sauces that were sitting idle in the fridge and thought what would be the outcome if I mixed them up.  I had to experiment to find out.  So, I got hold of some chicken leg, debone them, mixed in some sauces and cooked up this dish.  Family members said that they tasted somewhat like satay chicken but nodded in agreement that they were delicious :)





Recipe for Spicy Chicken with Korean sauce

Ingredients                                                                 

  • 3 chicken leg, deboned       
  • 4 pips of garlic, minced
  • 1  tsp sugar
  • 1/2  tsp salt
  • 1/2  tsp light soya sauce
  • 1/2  Tbsp honey
  • 1  Tbsp  Bulgogi sauce
  • 1.1/2  Tbsp Sunchang Ssamjang (seasoned bean paste)
  • 2.1/2  tsp lightly toasted sesame seeds
  • Sesame oil                                    
Method
  1. Cut each of the deboned chicken leg into 2 pieces.
  2. Mix in the minced garlic, sugar, salt, light soya sauce, honey, Bulgogi and Sunchang Ssamjang sauces.  Marinate for a few hours or overnight, refrigerated.
  3. Heat up a tablespoon oil in a non-stick pan, add in the chicken pieces and set aside the marinade.
  4. Pan-fry the chicken, flipping from side to side, cook till through.
  5. Take out the chicken, leave the marinade in the pan and add in the uncooked marinade.  Mix well and fine tune to taste.
  6. Return the chicken to the pan, mix in the sesame seeds and drizzle on some sesame oil.
  7. Dish out and serve with rice.

    1. Bulgogi sauce is a Korean sauce. There are Blulgogi sauce for pork as well as for beef. Two flavours, one is hot and spicy while the other is milder but it's still hot by my standard :)

Pandan Ombre Butter Cake ~ 班蘭牛油蛋糕

Whenever I want to make a butter cake, Mrs. Ng's butter cake recipe will come to my mind.  Her recipe is foolproof and you can use it as a basic recipe and play around with variations of flavours to your liking.  Today, I'm sharing with you a Pandan Ombre Butter Cake.  I've used pandan paste instead of pandan juice as I need to have a distinct green colour to bring out the 'Ömbre' effect, which is from a darker to a lighter shade of green.  I'm pleased with the result and the texture of this cake is soft and moist and it still stays in this manner even after the third day, kept in an airtight container.
