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.

Pandan Coconut Milk Bread ~ 香兰椰奶面包

  I made  this bread using the Wool Roll bread recipe and just substituted milk with coconut milk, added a bit of pandan paste and instead of melted butter, I used cooking oil.  Feel free to use coconut oil if you have it at hand.  This bread is soft and light and it stayed fresh till after the third day in a container, at room temperature.  You can eat it on its own accompanied with a cup of hot kopi O or slathered with butter and in my case, peanut butter.

Yam Puff ~ 'Wu Kok'

This is one of the must-have items whenever we go for have dim-sum ...... 'Wu Kok' or Yam dumplings.  Initially I had a hard time struggling with the soft and sticky dough in the hot and stuffy kitchen, but fortunately after chilling it in the fridge for 50 mins., it could be 'man-handled' quite easily!  Phew, not too bad as this is my first attempt!

Mixed Fruit Bread ~ 杂果面包

Homemade bread is always more nutritious than those bought from the supermarkets.  For one I don't add any bread improver or preservatives to my bread making.  Store bought ones may be fresh but they have loads of preservatives added to prolong their shelf life.  When I make bread I can control the ingredients that I want to put into my bread and I can customise the flavour and I find that kneading the dough can be quite therapeutic too!
