Smoked Chicken



I was so happy when I saw Elin of  Elinluv's Tidbits Corner posted the recipe for Smoked Chicken.  I quickly bookmarked it as  sometimes I'm at a loss at what to prepare for dinner and this recipe comes in handy as it's simple to prepare.  This is a tasty  dish and it's finger licking good, trust me!








Recipe for Smoked Chicken  (adapted from 'here')

    Ingredients

    • 1/2 free range chicken, with skin
    • 1/2 Tbsp five spice powder
    • 1/2 tsp  freshly ground black pepper
    • 1 tsp seasalt
    • some tea leaves (I used Chinese tea leaves)
    • sugar
    Method
    1. Marinate the chicken with the five spice powder, black pepper and seasalt for a few hours.  (I did it overnight and kept in the fridge).
    2. Pan sear and cook the chicken in a non-stick pan till it's 3/4 cooked.
    3. Line a wok with a piece of foil.
    4. Sprinkle some tea leaves and sugar over the foil.
    5. Place a steamer rack over the foil.
    6. On medium heat, heat up the wok till smoke emits.
    7. Place chicken on the rack, cover and smoke for 20 mins.
    8. Turn off heat, cool chicken, cut it up and serve.

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. 

Herbal Jelly ~ Gui Ling Gao

H erbal Jelly ~ Gui Ling Ga o literally translated means 'Tortoise Jelly' is one of my family's favourite desserts.  It's much more economical to prepare this at home for you'll need to fork out between Rm 9 to Rm 11 for a bowl of this cooling dessert in any of those herbal tea outlets.  This soothing jelly, served chilled, is supposed to be able to help reduce our body heat, helps to get rid of toxins and is believed to be good for the skin thus culminating a healthier complexion.

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.
