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…

Curry Laksa

          Story goes that when Chinese immigrants settled in Malaysia, they married locals who learned to cook Chinese recipes but put their own twist on them by using local ingredients.  Hence, Peranakan cuisine (aka Nyonna cuisine) was born and still remains a delicious staple in Malaysia today. One of the more…

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      Let me preface this by saying that I know fajitas were originally made with skirt steak.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…

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 Cordon Bleu Bites

When I was a child, my favorite food was Chicken Cordon Bleu.  In my opinion, there was nothing to dislike.  Someone somewhere in Switzerland had come up with a sinfully perfect combination of fried chicken with a salty ham and molten cheese center. As someone who LOVES fried chicken, I can’t think of anything better….

Cilantro Chicken Curry

      Cilantro chicken curry is one of those easy Indian curries that you can make practically anywhere.  You don’t need a lot of different spices to make it, nor a lot of time in the kitchen. All you need in a lot of fresh cilantro/coriander, chicken, ginger, garlic, and a touch of yogurt….
