A little bit of spiciness to usher in the Year of the Dog .... Sambal Shrimp Cookies!  The name may sound a bit weird but then there's always room for innovation and creativity.  I was just experimenting with this reicpe to make something different and surprisingly it yielded good result. Well at least the family members who were my guinea pigs gave a nod of approval!

Black Bean Sauce Chicken ~ 黑豆酱鸡

  This is an easy peasy chicken dish to whip up in the kitchen which can pair well with plain white rice or plain congee.  Ingredients are not complicated and mostly available in the kitchen, but it's best to season the chicken first before stir frying them.

Simmer till chicken is cooked and tender. Add in the sliced carrot and onion wedges.  Fine tune to taste with a bit of sugar. Toss in the chopped chilli. Dish up to serve.
