Ayam Percik

If you are feeling lazy & rushed as I often do - Ayam Percik is the answer. I dumped all the ingredients in a pot to make the gravy and let the oven bake my chicken for me. The results were astounding. Everyone had more than three helpings each! You can look good without doing much actually! Haha!

Chicken Rice Porridge

There are times when I feel like I've had too much of everything. I just badly need something simple, healthy & wholesome, and I almost always resort to boiling some rice porridge with the goodness of chicken bones and grated carrots. My favourite touch to the bubur is to sprinkle fresh green peppercorns from my garden. It gave a tangy, pungent, fresh peppery taste. Gorgeous!

Family Chicken Pie

I absolutely loved baking this Chicken Pie which we served at Cafe Dania. This pastry is a new recipe which is easier to handle compared to the Rough Puff Pastry that we used at the Cafe. I love large family pies in comparison to individual small pies as it allows me to cook the filling with the chicken bone-in which gives the gravy an exceptionally lovely flavour. Also, what makes this pie rather unique is the use of asparagus.

Kicap Ayam Tomato

As a kid, I have always loved my mum's Kicap Ayam. I remember so clearly desiring it very much when I studied overseas, but not knowing the exact recipe, and I was so miserable that I experimented on several versions, trying the get the exact taste of mum's Chicken in Soy Sauce. At that point, I made a decision never to take anything for granted again. This version of Kicap Ayam using tomatoes was my favourite when we were little.

Spicy Tomato Chicken

However young we were and however forgetful we get now. We never seem to be able to forget the wonderful memories we hold dear, especially when it comes to food experiences. I remember how Mum used to cook this Tomato Chicken for us. As our taste buds got accustomed to a spicier version, I realised mum added chilli paste to this dish. So today is the first day of school for my two younger kids, I've prepared the same Spicy Tomato Chicken mum used to make!
