Roasted Red Pepper Pesto

If you are a follower or even a fan of this blog, you’ll know that I love roasted red peppers (also pork belly, pasta and all things chicken but I digress).  No offense to fresh, crunchy, raw red peppers, but roasted is where it is at.  Soft, sweet and the perfect accompaniment to cheese (which…

Chicken and Bacon Puffs

Stock the fridge with lots of food now… The holiday season is upon us.  Bring on the booze, roast dinners, and baked goods.  No wonder everyone gains weight this time of the year.  The amount of food and libations thrown at you is truly sinful in its abundance.  Not to mention all the leftovers.  There…

Andy’s Chicken Balti

A curry here, another curry there… Compare a local mamak (eatery) here in Malaysia with an Indian restaurant back home and you will be puzzled.  Granted, a mamak serves a wide range of different Malaysian foods from three (or more) different ethnic groups, not just food from the subcontinent, but if you fancy a curry…

Kung Pao Chicken Wings

  I like Kung Pao Chicken and I like chicken wings but I absolutely love these Kung Pao Chicken Wings.  Why?  Well, for one thing they are delicious.  Tender on the inside and coated in a mouthwatering salty, sweet and spicy sauce.  They don’t take much prep or an extensive amount of time to throw…

Chicken Fajitas

      Let me preface this by saying that I know fajitas were originally made with skirt steak.  Some food purists would argue that steak is the only way to have fajitas but I disagree.  You gotta change with the times if you to stay current and fajitas NEED to stay current.  They are…

Karaage Chicken

          I first learned how to make karaage (kara a gee) chicken in a Japanese cooking class whilst living in Beijing.  That was where I learned that coating things in cornstarch and frying until crispy was inspired by Chinese cooking to which I say, thank you China. For me, karaage chicken is…

Crispy Chicken Chop

]        Here in Malaysia, chicken chops are EVERYWHERE!  Crispy  chicken chops with salted egg yolk sauce. Grilled chicken chops with peppered gravy.  In the local grocery store, chicken chops come already deboned and ready to be covered in spice, sliced up and served next to rice and sambal or wrapped up in…

Chicken Enchiladas

      Enchiladas…gooey, cheesey, spicy and warm enchiladas. The thought of it makes your mouth water and puts a little spring in your step.   You might even say to yourself,  ‘Tonight, I’m making a big ol’ plate of enchiladas for dinner. Let’s get some beer to go with it, why not? Diet starts tomorrow!‘….

Chicken Liver Mousse

          ‘Try the grey stuff-it’s delicious!  Don’t believe us, ask the dishes!’   I remember that line from Beauty and the Beast as a child.  In my mind, I just thought the ‘grey stuff’ was something fancy and French.  As an adult, I contemplate how many grey foods there are out…
