Rotisserie Cornish Hens

Nov 17, 2012 by

I got this original recipe of Todd’s Secret Recipe. It suppose to be a clone for KFC baked chicken, and I got to say it truly is a tasty dish. The only change I made was to leave the msg out,added brown sugar to the brine, and used my rotisserie machine.

Ingredients

For the Marinade:
  • 8 cups water
  • 1/4 cup salt
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 Cornish hens
Brush with:
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon liquid smoke
  • 1/4 teaspoon soy sauce
Seasoning:
  • 2 teaspoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon chicken bouillon powder (Knorr brand is best)
  • 1/4 teaspoon coarse grind black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed dried rosemary
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/8 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder

 

Instructions

  1. Dissolve the salt and brown sugar in the water to make the marinade (brine). Add the chicken, cover and chill for exactly 2 hours. Whisk together the oil, liquid smoke, and soy sauce in a small bowl. Combine all of the ingredients for the seasoning in a small bowl. When the chicken has marinated, rinse each piece of chicken with water and blot dry.
  2. Brush oil over one side of each piece of chicken. Sprinkle the seasoning over the oiled side of each piece of chicken, then flip each piece, brush with oil again and sprinkle on more seasoning.
  3. If you own a rotisserie use it like I did. Put the rotisserie on for 1 hr and 10 min. If you don’t own one you can still make it in your oven. Just a bit more work for you.
  4. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F, or 325 degrees F if you have a convection oven. Brush some of the leftover oil solution onto an oven-safe grill pan or grill plate. Set the pan over medium heat, and when the oil begins to smoke, place the chicken skin-side-down on the pan. Cook the chicken for 2 to 3 minutes or until the skin begins to brown and grill marks form on the chicken, then flip the chicken and cook it for another 1 to 2 minutes. Pop the grill pan into the oven for 20 minutes, then flip each piece of chicken and bake for another 20 minutes, or until the surface of the chicken is golden brown, and the chicken is cooked through.

Chicken Parmesan

May 20, 2012 by

Chicken Parmesan, chicken parmigiana, or (Italian Pollo alla parmigiana) is a popular Italian dish. It is made up of a chicken breast covered in bread crumbs and topped with tomato sauce and mozzarella. The chicken may be baked or fried. It is always served over spaghetti. Some variations of the traditional recipe may call for the use of Parmigiano-Reggiano (parmesan cheese) in addition to, or as a substitute for, mozzarella. This may reflect a confused belief that the dish is so-named because it contains Parmesan cheese; in fact both the dish and the cheese are (separately) named for the Parma region of Italy.

The “Parma” in Australia is a very popular pub meal often served with a beer. for normally $10 AUD you can buy a “pot n’ Parma” for lunch. In some Australian states groups of Chicken Parmigiana eaters have started clubs such as CPAS (Chicken Parma Appreciation Society). These groups are mostly male dominated.

I made this dish with Alfredo Sauce and Marinara Sauce. Which ever one you prefer they are both delicious.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup Italian-seasoned breadcrumbs, if you don’t have that just use the regular bread crumbs and add 1 tbsp Italian seasonings
  • 2 tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp red pepper
  • 3 boneless chicken breasts and cut in half.
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 cups of Tomato Sauce like marinara sauce or get the tomatoes out of a can.
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese

Instructions

  1. Combine breadcrumbs, flour, and ground red pepper in a small bowl, and set aside.
  2. Cut the chicken breast in 2. Place chicken in ziplock bag, and flatten to 1/4-inch thickness, using a meat mallet or whatever works for you.
  3. Dip 1 chicken breast in egg, and coat with breadcrumb mixture. Dip again in egg mixture, and coat again in breadcrumb mixture.
  4. Cook chicken in hot olive oil over medium heat 2 to 3 minutes on each side or until done.
  5. Put 1 cup of tomato sauce in the pan and place chicken breasts in a single layer in the baking dish. Top evenly with parmesan cheese, then tomato Sauce. Top it off with mozarella cheese. Bake at 350F for 20 minutes or until cheeses melt.

Foo Young Hai (Indonesian, Dutch)

May 12, 2012 by

Foo Young Hai

I could not find a lot about the history of Foo Yong Hai, but I believe it must have had traveled through a long and winding path to become the way it is now. But Nevertheless during its spread in Western Europe Foo Young Hai has gradually changed and was adapted as a more western style omelet with fillings inside, while in Canton, the standard way of cooking fried Foo Yong eggs is actually mix the ingredients (Cantonese BBQ pork strips and other vegetables) with the beaten egg yolk before frying. Apart from that, I found out that “hai” means crab. The Foo Yong Hai that I know mostly uses prawns, shrimps or chicken. Either way it’s a delicious dish. In this recipe I used chicken.

Ingredients

6 eggs
4 skinless boneless chicken thighs
2 leeks
1 tray of mushrooms
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 tsp pepper
For the foo young hai sauce:

4 cups bouillon (you can make that by boiling the chicken in water and add a bouillon cube)
1 cup of tomato ketchup
1/3 cup of sugar
6 tbsp ketjap manis (sweet soya sauce)
2 tsp ginger
2 cups cooked rice.

Instructions

1.  First start making the Foo Young Hai Sauce. Cook the chicken in a pot with water, add 1 chicken bouillon cube. Boil till the chicken is done. Take the chicken out then add the tomato ketchup, sweet soya sauce, sugar and ginger to the 4 cups of broth. Add diluted cornstarch to make the sauce thick. You can freeze the sauce before you add the diluted cornstarch.

2. Shredd the chicken. Cut the leeks in rings and rinse with water to get all the sand out. Cut up the mushrooms. Put some olive oil in a hot skillet, add the leeks, mushrooms, shredded chicken and pepper and salt.

3. Now it’s time to make the omelet. Beat the eggs. The skillet has to be hot, add some olive oil then pour in the egg mixture. Pull on the side so the egg mixture can run under it. Do that all around. When the omelet is nearly done, add on one side the vegetable meat mixture, then flip the opposide over the meat vegatable mixture. Put the omelet on some cooked rice and pour the babi pangang sauce over your omelet.

Chicken Salad

Apr 22, 2012 by

Chicken salad can really be just about any kind of salad that includes chicken as the primary ingredient. Some very commonly added ingredients can include: Celery, eggs, mayonnaise and different kinds of mustards.

The history of the first chicken salad has been traced back to 1863. In the town of Wakefield, Rhode Island, a man named Liam Gray combined leftover chicken with mayonnaise, tarragon, and grapes and sold it as a salad at his meat market, Town Meats. Today, the meat market is now a delicatessen and still serves the original chicken salad.

In the United States, chicken salad often is comprised of chopped white chicken meat, and salad dressing or mayonnaise. It’s often served as either a salad, or as a sandwich on wheat bread, accompanied by avocados, iceberg lettuce and tomatoes. It’s usually made to use tougher chicken, canned chicken or any leftovers so that they don’t go to waste.

Throughout Asia and most of Europe, chicken salad can be topped by a wide variety of different dressings for flavoring. It can also be accompanied by various vegetables, fresh leaves, pastas, noodles and rice.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup mayonaise
  • 1/3 cup yoghurt
  • 1/2 cup sweet pickle relish
  • 1/2 chopped celery
  • 1/2 cup crushed pecans
  • 1/2 cubed apple
  • 1 chicken breast or turkey
  • pepper and salt

Instructions

  1. Boil the chicken or turkey breast for about 20 minutes on simmer. Cut up the apple, crush the pecans and slice up the celery. Combine the mayonnaise with the yoghurt. Add to the same bowl you have the shredded chicken, apple, pecans and the relish. Mix well and add the pepper and salt. Refrigerate at least for an hour.

BBQ Chicken Pizza

Feb 2, 2012 by

The word pizza is believed to be from an Old Italian word meaning “a point,” which in turn became the Italian word “pizzicare,” which means “to pinch” or “pluck.” Pizza has been a basic part of the Italian diet for a long time. Most people associate pizza with Italie. It is also said that the idea of using bread as a plate cam from the Greeks.

Umberto I (1844-1900), King of Italy, and his wife, Queen Margherita di Savoia (1851-1926), in Naples on holiday, called to their palace the most popular of the pizzaioli (pizza chef), Raffaele Esposito, to taste his specialties. He prepared three kinds of pizzas: one with pork fat, cheese, and basil; one with garlic, oil, and tomatoes; and another with mozzarella, basil, and tomatoes (in the colors of the Italian flag). The Queen liked the last kind of pizza so much that she sent to the pizzzaiolo a letter to thank him saying, “I assure you that the three kinds of pizza you have prepared were very delicious.” Raffaele Esposito dedicated his specialty to the Queen and called it “Pizza Margherita.” This pizza set the standard by which today’s pizza evolved as well as firmly established Naples as the pizza capitol of the world.

In the late 19th century, pizza was sold in the streets in Naples at breakfast, lunch, and dinner. It was cut from a large tray that had been cooked in the baker’s oven and had a simple topping of mushrooms and anchovies. As pizza became more popular, stalls were set up where the dough was shaped as customers ordered. Various toppings were invented. The stalls soon developed into the pizzeria, an open-air place for people to congregate, eat, drink, and talk.

Pizza migrated to America with the Italians in the latter half of the 19th century. Pizza was introduced to Chicago by a peddler who walked up and down Taylor Street with a metal washtub of pizzas on his head, crying his wares at two cents a chew. This was the traditional way pizza used to be sold in Naples, in copper cylindrical drums with false bottoms that were packed with charcoal from the oven to keep the pizzas hot. The name of the pizzeria was embossed on the drum. For many people, especially among the Italian-American population, the first American pizzas were known as Tomato Pie. Even in the present 21st century, present-day tomato pie is most commonly found in the Northeastern United States, especially in Italian bakeries in central New York. Tomato pies are built the opposite of pizza pies – first the cheese, then the toppings, and then the sauce. In case you would like to read more about the history of Pizza I Found this story on whats cooking America.

  • 1 1/3 cup water
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 1 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 2 tbsp. olive oil
  • 2 tbsp. cornmeal
  • 3 cups bread flour

Jambalaya

Dec 28, 2011 by

Jambalaya is pronounced jahm-buh-LIE-uh or jum-buh-LIE-uh According to the Online Etymology dictionary 1872, from Louisiana Fr., from Prov. jambalaia “stew of rice and fowl.” Jambalaya originated in southern Louisiana by the Cajuns around the bayou where food was scarce, as opposed to the richer part of Louisiana. The word is said to be a compound word of Jambon from the French meaning ham, and Aya meaning rice in African, as there were many slaves in the Louisiana at the time. Common belief is that it originated from the Spanish Paella, which has also transformed in the United States to a dish called Spanish Rice. Jambalaya is a bit different many times as it incorporates seafood , ham, link sausage rounds and chicken, although it doesn’t have to have all those ingredients. It can be made (separately or all together) with ham, chicken, sausage, fresh pork, shrimp and oysters, to which is added shortening, rice, onion, garlic, pepper and other seasonings.
