Air Fryer Ayam Goreng Berempah (Spiced Fried Chicken) with Nasi Lemak (Coconut Rice)

I have to say we are pretty pleased with our new air fryer so far. Last night, we made ayam goreng berempah or spiced fried chicken, and the chicken is cooked to perfection as usual, without much effort on our end. We served the chicken with a simple but delicious meal of nasi lemak (coconut […]

Chicken and Sausage Rice Soup

All I could think of when I was going to bed last night was that I really needed to use up some of the leftover ingredients in the fridge soon, lol. So, that’s exactly what I set out to do the moment I opened my eyes this morning and here’s the result – delicious chicken […]

Paratha Curry Puffs

Delicious paratha curry puffs – got the idea of using paratha as a curry puff pastry from a Singaporean friend a while back. Thank you for the great idea, Janice! 😁 1 tablespoon vegetable oil 1 to 1-1/4 pounds ground chicken (dark meat) 1 pound frozen diced potatoes (I use Ore-Ida Diced Hash Brown Potatoes) […]

Chicken, Fish Ball, and Tofu Soup

This is another dish from my childhood that I was reminiscing about lately. It’s an absolute comfort food to me – more hearty than your simple egg drop soup but still lighter than your typical American cream-based soup. Delicious! 1 tablespoon vegetable oil 3 cloves garlic, thinly sliced 1 to 1-1/4 pounds ground chicken 1 […]

Fried Stuffed Tofu and Chicken Fritters

Today, I made fried stuffed tofu and chicken fritters. The stuffing is the exact same mixture I use to make the chicken fritters, so whatever you have left after filling the tofu, just fry it up (in fact, I typically double the filling so I can make more chicken fritters!). Yum! 😁 2 (19 oz) […]

Chicken Egg Rolls

The deep-frying saga continues today, lol. Another thing I craved recently is fried spring rolls. I ended up making egg rolls instead since I didn’t feel like going to the Asian store to buy spring roll wraps. I have to say I am pretty impressed with the Nasoya egg roll wraps – everything you need […]

Chicken Pot Pie

Despite it being such a hot day, I had a hankering for chicken pot pie (with a cheesy crust by the way) this evening, lol. Again, I decided to bake the pot pies on the grill….. no way was I going to turn on the oven inside the house. We sweated while we ate, hahaha […]

Macaroni Salad and Fried Chicken

I am so in the mood for warmer weather, not that I ever need an excuse to eat fried chicken. 😉 Dig in! Recipe for the macaroni salad can be found in the Macaroni Salad and Grilled Soy Sauce Pork post while the extremely simple fried chicken marinade is listed below: Approximately 2 pounds chicken […]
