Tsukune Recipe (Japanese Style Chicken Meatballs)

One reason why I love Japanese food is because of its multifaceted nature. Think sushi, sashimi, donburi, ramen, shabu shabu, teppanyaki – and the list goes on. I think I can live very well in Japan should I move there one day, lol. Yakitori (or chicken grilled on skewer) is something that I snack on […]

Chicken Tofu Burger Recipe with Kimchi

One of my recent food inventions was this Chicken Tofu Burger topped with crunchy, sweet & sour cabbage kimchi. Had been making a lot of burgers recently cos’ the husband and I got hooked onto this Korean drama (Jang Bo-ri is Here!) on Channel U hence we would eat our dinner in front of the […]

Ayam Pongteh Recipe (Nonya Style Chicken and Potato Stew)

While my Gran was a Teochew, she also had Peranakan roots as her mother was a pure Nonya. I guess it was because of that, hence Gran had inherited incredible family recipes that I used to enjoy so much when I was little. Dishes with tau cheo (fermented soya beans) were clearly her forte and […]

Nando’s PERi-PERi Chicken Recipe

I love Nando’s not because their flame-grilled chicken is out of this world but because their peri-peri sauces are just amazing. They are robust in flavour, spicy, tangy, piquant and sweet – everything that’s needed to make a piece of chicken tasty. When I was at Mustafa Centre the other day looking out for interesting buys, I […]

Bacon-Wrapped Stuffed Chicken Recipe (Part 1 of 2)

Besides making Scotch eggs as an entree, the husband made Alfredo Fettuccine and Bacon-Wrapped Chicken as the main which I thought were really special and meaningful because I was hooked onto this really delicious Alfredo Fettuccine that I had to have it every evening for dinner during my cruise and the Bacon-Wrapped Stuffed Chicken was […]

Fermented Beancurd Chicken with Lotus Root Recipe

Besides being an excellent condiment with plain rice congee, fermented beancurd is also one of my favourite cooking ingredients. It is what I call the Chinese version of cheese as it has this salty and mildly sweet flavour (from the pickling liquid) that really makes food taste more robust and appetising. I had made a […]

Coca-Cola Chicken Recipe

I love coke! I love it when I was little and I still love it now though I haven’t had it for a long time due to diet restrictions. And it is just amazing how coke makes a great sauce for meats. I have cooked Coca Cola Pork Ribs before but I think chicken is […]

Chicken with Peperonata Recipe

Peperonata is Italian for stewed bell peppers which makes a great complement to poultry or even seafood dishes. There are probably tons of ways to stew peppers (with white wine, canned tomatoes, etc) but I like mine light and healthy with just fresh chicken stock and sufficient salt and pepper to taste. In this way, […]

Garlic and Thyme Chicken with Mashed Green Cabbage Recipe

One thing about getting store-bought herbs instead of growing your own is that the portion of each packet of herbs is often more than what is enough for a recipe. I mean, we wouldn’t be throwing one big bunch of herbs into one particular dish and totally kill the taste, would we? When I do […]

Chicken with Spicy Tomato Sauce Recipe

This recipe is like a westernised tomato-based version of an Asian chicken curry. It doesn’t smell as pungent or aromatic as an Indian curry but you get this sweetness from the tomatoes & onions and a little spicy kick from the red chilli. For best results, do use coconut milk or cream just like you would in […]

Tarragon Chicken Burger Recipe

Burgers aren’t always bad and high in calories, especially not when you make your own. I used to eat a lot of fast food before I started cooking (once or twice every weekend – yeah I know, my diet was just so sinfully unhealthy!) and that was why my waistline kept expanding. Now that I’ve […]

Leek & Chicken Pie Recipe

I drew inspiration from a cottage or shepherd’s pie whose only crust is made with mashed potatoes. And for a healthier alternative, I chose to use a 0% fat greek yogurt instead of cream or canned soup to make the chicken-leek mix thicker, creamier and more flavoursome. If you don’t fancy leeks, you can always […]

Guacamole & Grilled Chicken Wrap Recipe

I got these gorgeous spinach and tomato tortilla wraps from Melvados that came in a bigger size of 30cm diameter and decided to make some chicken wraps for dinner. Couldn’t resist buying a few bags of our favourite Kettle chips (honey dijon & jalapeño are yum!) too to eat with the guacamole I made. I […]

Ipoh Hor Fun Recipe

I had previously reviewed Weng Kee Original Taste Ipoh Hor Fun @ Changi Village. It serves up a pretty good Ipoh Hor Fun with a generous amount of ingredients (including fried wanton & char siew besides the usual) and the combination of sweet & salty flavours in its gravy is quite tasty too. When I […]
