Stir-fried Sliced Chicken With Mango

Saturday, May 30, 2009


Mango is one of the most delicious fruits in the world and regarded as a valuable item of diet. The flavor of the mango is described as a delicate, exotic blend of peach and pineapple flavors. They are great with poultry, seafood, smoothies, etc. and they can be eaten fresh.


#Marinade:
  1. Rinse, pat dry and shred the chicken breast. Place the shredded chicken in a bowl, adding in the marinade, mix and set aside for 30 minutes. Cut the fresh mango lengthwise, along the pit. Peel and slice the flesh.
  2. Heat up some oil in a skillet. When hot, add in the marinated chicken and stir briefly until the pink colour has turned into ivory. Scoop out and drain.
  3. Leave one tablespoon of oil in the skillet and heat up again. Stir the minced garlic and shredded onion until aromatic. Add in white parts of spring onion and return the chicken to the skillet. Stir briefly. Add in water, mango slices, and tomato wedges, stirring, and season with salt if necessary, until all the ingredients are well-combined.

Strawberry Marmalade

Tuesday, May 26, 2009



Strawberry marmalade is great for bagels, biscuits and toast. Gelling sugar I used for the recipe is a kind of sugar for making marmalade, which contains pectin as a gelling agent. Double the portion of sugar if a regular sugar applied. I am sending this to Strawberry Feast promoted by Happy Cook - Kitchen Treasury.

  1. Prepare 2 or 3 1lb-jars and lids by washing well in warm soapy water and rinsing thoroughly. Bath them in a pan of boiling water for a while. Dry the jars.
  2. Well wash, remove stems and pat them dry with a clean kitchen towel. Slice strawberries. Peel the lemon and thinly shred lemon rind. Drop in squeezed lemon.
  3. In a big nonaluminum pan, add the prepared fruits and the preserving sugar and combine them briefly. Cover and refrigerate 3 to 4 hours. You would see a lot of liquid coming off the strawberries. Heat the strawberry mixture to boiling over medium heat, and allow it to boil for about 5 minutes, stirring frequently. Ladle marmalade into still very warm jars to prevent the jars from cracking when the hot filling is added. Wipe jar rims clean and seal with lids and bands. Store marmalade in a cool and dry place. After opening jar, store marmalade in the refrigerator.

Spaetzle German Egg Noodles

Tuesday, May 19, 2009




Spaetzle(literally translated from German language as (little sparrow). The dough typically consists of just flour, eggs, and a bit of salt. It can be firm enough to be cut into small thin pieces or batter-like, which can be pressed into a boiling salted water via colander or a special Spaetzle machine.

There are two kinds of Spaetzle: button-shaped/Knoepfle and elongated noodle alike. Spaetzle is not only just popular in Germany, but also in Austria and Switzerland. Spaetzle is eaten as a side dish and usually served with gravy or other desired sauces. Of course you can try making flavoured Spaetzle, herb?paprika?cheese? Just give it a try. And I LOVE to stir-fry the plain Spaetzle with some vegetables(like cabbages, onions or sweet peppers) in red chilli oil, just giving it a spicy touch. Find Monday Mouthful Spaetzle by Chef E and Mindy .

  1. Stir together eggs, 1/4 teaspoon of salt and flour in a mixing bowl. Gradually add water to make a thick but smooth batter.
  2. In a large pot bring 5 cups of water and one teaspoon of salt to a boil. Set the Spaetzle maker over the pot. Scoop the batter in and crank the handle to have the button-shaped Spaetzle fall into the boiling water.
  3. Boil gently for a few minutes till they float to the top of the water. Remove them with a slotted ladle and toss with a little butter. So that they won't stick together. If you prefer stir them with some chilli oil and vegetable shreds. Another way to prepare them is to bake them with grated cheese and onion.
