There are many things that I love. Family, husband, my furry babies, shoes, knitting and lots more. Of course, coming from an Asian country and genes from my parents, I absolutely love food. It’s been ages since I last make any muffins. There were some ripe bananas on the kitchen bench and banana muffins came to mind .
They’re so simple to make and tastes so yummy too . On my way home from work today, I was thinking what to cook for dinner tonight. Almost every single day, I have to think what to cook for dinner. However, I was craving for something sweet tonight. I was actually craving for honey chicken. Never cook them before so I wasn’t sure how it will turn out but was determined enough just to try it out.
End result was a thumbs up, given by my sister . If you don’t believe me, ask her. So for dinner, we had honey chicken, stri-fry bok choy and mushroom omelette. It was a very satisfying dinner.
Lastly, here’s a photo of my sister in case you’ve forgotten how she look like.
Took this last Saturday in the city as we were walking back to the car. It was pretty cold that day but we keep each other toasty warm. There are days when we’re at each other’s throat and there are days when we’re just great sisters .
Here’s the honey chicken recipe because Val asked for it
3 chicken thigh fillets
2 tbsp self-raising flour
1 tbsp corn flour
1 tsp soy sauce
1 egg, beaten
Pinch of white pepper
1. Cut the chicken thigh fillets into bite size and put them in a bowl.
2. Mix the chicken together with the soy sauce, self-raising flour, corn flour, pepper, and egg, making sure the chicken pieces are coated well. Marinate in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes.
3. Heat up the oil in the wok or frying pan on high.
4. Fry the chicken pieces in batches, 7 to 8 pieces at a time, until golden brown and crispy.
5. Set aside and drain them on paper towels. Repeat with remaining chicken pieces.
6. Heat 1 tablespoon of oil over medium heat and toss in all the cooked chicken pieces.
7. Drizzle about 2-3 tablespoons of honey over the chicken pieces and make sure they’re all coated.
8. Sprinkle the sesame seeds all over and toss the chicken pieces.
9. Turn of the heat
As I always said, please bear in mind that I always estimate my ingredients. You can always adjust the amount of ingredients to your liking.
