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

  • 1/2  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.

  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 :)

Yoghurt Fruitcake

T is the festive season again and the all-time favourite for X'mas is undoubtedly the ubiquitous fruit cake.  This Yoghurt Fruitcake caught my eye when I was browsing through a Food and Travel magazine.  As I've never baked a fruit cake with yoghurt before, I was very eager to try. 

Overnight Almond Orange Muffins ~ 隔夜杏仁橘玛芬

  I stumbled upon this post on how to achieve "Tall Bakery Style Muffins'' from 'Handletheheat' blog which aroused my curiosity and I was very eager to give it a try.  The batter is chilled for a few hours or overnight and can be baked straightaway.   Thus the muffins can be baked in a jiffy and you can serve warm freshly baked muffins for breakfast.  Yes, I noticed that the muffins rose fairly high and they were fluffy and moist.

Double Boiled Herbal Chicken Soup

Double boiling is slow cooking ........ means to put a soup pot or any covered ceramic or steel pot inside a bigger pot, immerse in boiling water, and let the soup cook at a lower temperature.  Hence the soup is cooked from heat generated from the boiling water and not from direct heat source. Double boiling lets the soup ingredients slowly release their nutrients into the soup, thus making it tasty and wholesome.  It's a long cooking process, roughly averaging 2 to 4 hours.  The tip is not to open the cover to check on the soup as it'll bring down the temperature and affect the cooking process.  The plus point is there's little evaporation and the soup will not boil over.  The only thing is to monitor that there's enough water in the bigger pot and not let it run dry.  Of course, nowadays, the slow cooker is another alternative to double boiling, saves the hassle of checking the water level.
