Korean bean paste chicken ~ 韩式酱鸡


 I just had to finish up the Korean bean paste before it expires and what's more easy to make than to pair them with chicken.   For meat, the menu is either chicken or pork in my household for I hardly ever cook with beef in my kitchen.   So, here's my fuss-free Korean bean paste chicken........






Recipe for Korean Bean Paste Chicken ~  韩式酱鸡

Ingredients

  • 3 chicken thigh, skinless, deboned and cut into 2 pieces each
  • 1 Tbsp Sunchang Ssamjung/Korean Bean Paste
  • 1 Tbsp brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1/4 tsp dark soy sauce
  • 2 tsp cornflour + 1 Tbsp water to thicken
  • Lightly toasted sesame seeds (optional)
Method
  1. Marinate the chicken pieces with the bean paste, brown sugar, dark soya sauce, salt and pepper for a few hours, preferably overnight.  Set aside.
  2. Place the chicken pieces onto a non-stick pan, cook on low fire, cover with lid.  Reserve the marinade.  Turn over the meat now and then.
  3. Once the chicken is cooked, push them to the side of the pan.  Thicken the marinade with the cornflour mixture and pour onto the pan, fine tune to taste and mix in the chicken pieces.
  4. Dish out onto a serving plate and sprinkle on some sesame seeds.
  5. Serve hot with rice.

  2. Wah! This dish can make one eat more than usual portion of rice. Can use wings and bake in oven. Good idea.

  8. With Induction site cooking the heat level is every bit as instantaneous and as exact as with gas, yet with none of the many drawbacks of gas which we will detail later.

Ondeh Ondeh Pandan Cupcakes ~ 香兰小蛋糕

Ondeh Ondeh are green coloured and pandan flavoured glutinous rice balls with gula melaka or palm sugar filling, coated with freshly grated coconut.  We call it 'Kuih'.  Ondeh Ondeh cake is entirely different from this 'Kuih'.
I don't know how the name 'Ondeh Ondeh cake' came about but I guess it's because of the colour and the ingredients which are somewhat similar to that of the 'kuih'.
This pandan flavoured Ondeh Ondeh cupcake is moist, soft and slightly spongy and the gula melaka filling blends awfully well with the pandan and 'santan'/coconut milk.  A wonderful tea-time snack or a delectable dessert, any time!

Traditional Mixed Nuts Mooncake ~ 2013

Traditional Mixed Nuts Mooncake was my dad's perennial favourite.  At that time I couldn't understand why this festive traditional mooncake was most enjoyed by the older folks.  But nowadays, I too have slowly acquired the taste for this sweet, salty and nutty variety.  These cakes are best cut in  small wedges, savoured by small delicate bites and not by the mouthfuls, and they are best enjoyed with a pot of hot Chinese tea.

Yam paste Mooncake ~ 2018 ~ 芋头月饼

It's that time of the year once again and there are Mooncakes galore at all the shopping malls and supermarkets.  The Mid-autumn Mooncake festival falls  on 24th September, this year.  This round, I'm sharing with you mooncakes with homemade yam paste.  Homemade yam paste is moist and sugar level can be controlled.  These mooncakes do not have a 'waiting period'  which is  ( 回油)  and can be eaten on the day they are baked.  Best to consume within four days.
