Chicken Sopas

If it were me, I will put everything in a pot and boil it until it’s done. Better yet, I would give the crock pot a go! Adding too much noodles will soak up most of the soup. cooking oil or butter 2 Boneless dark meat chicken diced into small pieces 1 Hotdog – sliced…

sort of a Tandoori Chicken

 This recipe is very simple and easy. It is based off of Jamie Oliver and Chef Harpal Singh’s version of tandoori chicken. It can be skewered or not, BBQ grilled, oven baked, or stove top grilled. It is one of my favorite dish to order. Usually the restaurant version is vibrant red because they use food…

Sizzling Chicken & Liver

I love chicken liver. I believe this is the first time in a decade that I’ve cooked and eaten chicken liver. It has been a long time. Even though chicken liver is notorious for cholesterol, you should not stray away from eating it. There are many benefits from eating chicken liver. 1. It contains all 9 essential amino…

Chicken&Carrots Curry

♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ = Very good! I will never stop eating curry 🙂 This time I didn’t have potatoes, so….carrots & chicken it was. So, I figured not everybody can buy the Golden curry cubes, so I’ve done a bit of research and runnyrunny999 had an episode on how to make the curry roux. Ingredients: 4…

Chicken & Pasta

So trying to mix and match..Yesterday’s grilled chicken was delicious. So I thought, “Why not use the marinade as a pasta sauce?” It turned out…not so good, yet edible. Ingredients: Tuley Bros marinade, cubed chicken thighs, garlic, onion, water, corn starch, macaroni noodles, salt, and pepper. Onions+garlic+chicken=cook for a couple of minutes. Marinade sauce+water+salt+pepper (to…

Chicken grilled

Support local products as often as possible. Ingredients: Boneless chicken thighs (cut into strips) and Tuley Bros marinade. Marinade meat for a couple of hours or overnight. Grill and serve. I forgot to take a photo of the cooked version….was too hungry to remember!

Fried Chicken

♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ = Delicious! I want more… I love chicken! Especially when deep fried into crispy goodness. There are many ways to make everything crunchy, but if you want it extra crispy for next day’s lunch/dinner, use potato starch instead of flour. You’re lucky if your local Walmart store sells potato starch,…

Sweet Baby Ray’s Baked Chicken

♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ = Very good! I went to a party once, and they served the best finger lickin’ good barbecue pork chop steak. Their secret was “Sweet Baby Ray’s BBQ Sauce”. This sauce is available everywhere, even at the commissary in Italy. When we’re very hungry and there’s chicken around, this bbq sauce is…

Lemon Pepper Roasted Chicken

♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ = Very good! I love eating rotisserie chicken. So, why not cook it at home.  There are dozens of flavors out there. I go to the spices grocery isle, I pick out anything that sounds good (This time it’s Webber’s Lemon pepper marinade mix that is made for salmon or fish) and I tweak…

Chicken & Potato Curry

I cook with convenience in mind. Living in Japan for a couple of years made me love to eat curry. I recall long days after work where  my friends and I would eat dinner at CoCo Ichibanya in Yokosuka. It was the first time I found out the endless possibilities of curry. Anyways, now Japan…

Sweet & Sour Chicken

  Preferably this would go well with any type of meat. I usually just buy sweet & sour sauce in a bottle and deep fry my chicken or meatballs and pour in the sauce. But if you have extra time, you can use one of the many sweet & sour sauce found online. My favorite …

Chicken Mushroom

Last night’s dinner was the original recipe but I forgot to take a photo of it. The original recipe required chicken breasts, which I ran out of, and baking it for 15-20 minutes… yeah..I was very hungry after I got off class an hour ago and so I decided to tweak the recipe. I used…

Chicken Noodle Soup

♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ = Very good! So early on, I learned my lesson when in comes to buying fresh vegetables. Buy only when you intend to use them that week with the exception of onions, garlic and potatoes. They would eventually rot, that is if you are like me, who would stash and forget them….

Creamy Corn

♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ = Delicious! I want more… Alfredo sauce with added corn. Four things I always have in the house, Alfredo sauce, chicken, noodles and canned corn. Most things mix well with Alfredo sauce, especially when I have ran out of ideas. Always add a bit of milk if you are using a…

Roasted Lemongrass Chicken

Yummy Factor: ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ Yesterday, I didn’t have any idea what to make of the chicken drumsticks that has invaded the fridge. Erik suggested roasted just like how they served it at the Grandy’s restaurant. I searched and searched the world wide web, but I couldn’t find the recipe. So, I did…

Chicken & Dumpling

Sorry, but most of my posts are going to be outdated but I’ll put them up anyways. As you can see I would usually take a photo of the day’s meal and a day later…it will still be in the camera, waiting for me.  Anyways, Wednesday’s dinner was easy bake Chicken and Dumplings. For the…

Chicken Alfredo

Having the proper ingredients can spruce up any meal. When it comes to sauces, I always keep some handy in the pantry. I think it is a must to have them, especially if you don’t have the time to make any. It cuts down the cooking time in half. Over the years, I’ve had my…

Fried Chicken

Leftover chicken and fried rice from last night’s dinner. It get’s a bit tricky when it comes to re-heating leftovers especially when I don’t own a microwave. I used a saute pan and had everything in low medium heat. The chicken was a bit room temperature, but sitting on top of the rice somehow heated…
