Chicken Rendang

Last Sunday, I finally decided to use the homemade rendang paste I had stashed in the freezer since January…of this year (I’m not that terrible of a procrastinator…I think). As always, every time I make rendang, I wonder why I don’t cook it more often because it’s sooooooo delicious. Oh yeah…I forgot for a moment […]

Grilled Turmeric Chicken and Nasi Lemak (Coconut Rice)

Sunday is usually a big cooking day for us, so that all we would need to do during the busy weekdays is just reheating. One of the dishes we made this week was grilled turmeric chicken. This recipe originally comes from Linda of Roti n Rice. The dish is easy to make (it is simply […]

Easy Slow Cooker Chicken Curry

Wow! We had a -10ºF temp. with a wind chill of -38º overnight! It was definitely the coldest I’ve ever experienced since I’ve been here. We survived the night, thankfully! The house is still intact – the roof did not come down on us despite all the weird noises it was making. :D And most […]

Chicken in Black Bean Garlic Sauce

Okay, here’s part of my Sunday schedule…woke up, got ready, did grocery, rushed home, put chicken and sauce in slow cooker (Keith put away the rest of the grocery…thank goodness), stuffed my face with a quick lunch (not pretty), rushed to work, came home, ate yummy chicken. :D So, let’s have a big round of […]

Rotisserie Chicken Porridge

Another busy week flew by…due to the lack of time in our lives, I often cook in huge quantities (enough to last us several meals). It’s not exactly an ideal situation but at least we get to have a home-cooked meal most days. Usually, I would make something tried and true, of course. It has to be […]

Chicken and Vegetable Spring Rolls

Update (2/19/15): I had previously listed ground chicken as the main protein in the spring rolls. I love it for convenience sake but have found that it creates a filling that is too wet and therefore, more likely to tear the spring roll wrappers. Hence, I’ve replaced it with diced chicken breast. Also, there will be […]

Rotisserie Chicken and Preserved Egg Porridge

The cooler, more seasonable weather recently gave me the perfect reason (like I’d need one :D) to indulge in one of my cold-weather comfort foods – porridge! This time, I combined my love of rotisserie chicken and preserved eggs in one pot. Normally, we would eat the preserved eggs as is, like a condiment but I also find them to […]

Chicken Mushroom Soup with Mee Suah (Somen)

When my sister and her family were here this past week, I decided to make Chicken Mushroom Soup, a celebratory staple in our family. Instead of rice, the soup was served with mee suah and hard-boiled eggs – this dish brought back a lot of wonderful memories! For the recipe, check out my Chicken Mushroom Soup post. Enjoy!

Chicken & Tortilla Soup

It has really been unseasonably warm these past few days (but thank goodness the nights are still cool as they should be). Because the house warms up fast in the hot afternoons, I’ve been trying to make dishes that require only a minimal amount of cooking. This dish definitely qualifies as one and is one of our easy favorites. With all […]
