First time @ this
I found a 'treasure' in A Daily Obsession (check out my link). She posts most interesting recipes which look very, very easy to do.
I'm lousy at cooking Chinese. I admit that!! That's mum's territory. Ha! But now that I've found A Daily Obsession, On a Bento frenzy is trying out Chinese cooking.
I tried out her recipe for soy sauce chicken today. Admittedly, I didn't have all the ingredients, didn't understand that Sichuan peppercorns were Sichuan peppercorns and CANNOT use Sabah peppercorns! Okay, okay and I thought dark soy sauce was thick black sauce. So....I varied a little, ermm...maybe improvised a little by leaving out the tangerine peel...Oops!
Well, the 'mutilated chicken' looked okay for a first timer right? He! He! He! The final product was delicious. Everyone enjoyed the chicken including daughter number 3. She's a very, very fussy eater and hates anything 'different' from her regular meal of soup, fish or pork and rice. She ate the whole drumstick! Awesome!
Thank you Terri! If this variation tastes so good the original recipe with all the ingredients I missed out must be out of this world! Mmmmm....so good.
How's your spelling?
|Your Spelling is Perfect|
Your spelling is excellent. You also have a great memory and eye for detail.
|You Are Cilantro|
The good news is that most people love you more than anything else in the world.
You are distinct, unusual, fresh, and very controversial. And you wouldn't have it any other way.
