Chicken Puff ~ Oriental 鸡肉千层酥皮


This is a 'cheat' version of chicken puff as I didn't make the rough puff pastry dough from scratch.  It was store-bought, Kawan puff pastry to be exact.  Why Oriental?   Simply because the chicken filling was cooked the Chinese way with soya and oyster sauces, plus a drizzle of sesame oil with onions and frozen peas thrown in.   They were indeed delicious and was perfect to snack on.







Recipe for Chicken Puff ~ Oriental  (鸡肉千层酥皮)

Ingredients

  • 350 gm chicken breast, cubed
  • 2 onion, cubed
  • 100 gm frozen peas
  • 3 sheets of Kawan puff pastry
  • Egg glaze
Seasoning
  • 1 Tbsp light soya sauce, 1/2 Tbsp each of dark soya sauce and oyster sauce, 1/4 tsp salt, 2 tsps sugar, a dash of pepper, sesame oil and 3 tsp cornflour + 2 Tbsp water to thicken.
Method
  1. Season the chicken with the above seasoning.  Lightly fry the onions, then the chicken.  Once cooked, add in the frozen peas.  Mix in thickening and fine tune to taste.
  2. Thaw the puff pastry.  Cut a sheet of pastry into 4 parts.
  3. Place some filling in the centre of the pastry.
  4. Fold over, press and space out the filling gently.  Seal the edges.

Marble Castella Cake ~ 长崎蛋糕

What's for tea?  A soft, light and non-greasy Marble Castella ~  Kasutera cake.  I didn't line the pan with foil this time, only with parchment paper and was very pleased that the bottom of the cake didn't stick onto the paper and yielded a perfect brown base.  Indeed a delicious cake to be enjoyed at any time of the day.

Chinese Pumpkin Pancake ~ 金瓜饼

This pumpkin pancake is soft and delicate and not too sweet as the sweetness is only from the red bean paste filling.   For a crispy pancake you can deep-fry them but I chose to just shallow pan-fry them in a non-stick pan.   This is great to serve as a tea-time snack over a cup of brimming hot Chinese tea.
