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 […]

Emperor Herbs Chicken Recipe with Seah’s Spices

Seah’s Spices is one of the few local brands of spice mix that I use every now and then in my cooking. My previous attempts on making Salt-Roasted Chicken and Bak Kut Teh with their pre-mixed spices turned out really well. They were just so easy to prepare and were very tasty too. Godma has always […]

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 […]

Honey Sesame Chicken Recipe

I meant to make this a Chinese dish but ended up serving it like Western food, lol because I didn’t fancy steamed rice to go with the chicken. I served the chicken with sweet potato mash instead that was easy to prepare and required no extra flavouring since sweet potato was already good on its own The […]

Chicken Fajitas Recipe

I had grilled chicken fajitas at Chili’s Grill & Bar earlier and thought to myself that this shouldn’t be difficult to recreate at home plus I still had this Amazon brand of Chipotle Sauce that I bought from Zac Meat which was good for marinating meats. So I came up with my own version of chicken fajitas […]

Chicken with Creamy Mushroom Sauce Recipe

Whenever I order a chicken or pork chop when dining out, I tend to go for a rich and robust mushroom sauce to go with the meat rather than a black pepper sauce which can be quite overpowering. But again I know how fattening such sauces can be because of the use of heavy cream […]

Avocado Chicken Recipe

Normally I would eat avocados in salads or on their own, or make them into guacamole dips, sandwich spreads and even pasta sauces that wouldn’t require any cooking. Check out some of my no-cook avocado recipes: Creamy Avocado Penne Pasta with Crispy Salmon Egg, Bacon & Avocado Salad Tempeh, Tofu & Avocado Salad Honey Mustard Roast […]
