Last Sunday, my brother in law and his family as well as my mother in law came over for dinner. It has been a number of weekends that they have not drop by. Since it was a long weekend, I have decided to try out a recipe from the confinement recipe book. They called it Honey Chicken. Instead of having half a chicken as recommended, I bought 5 drumsticks instead (since I love chicken drumsticks).
It was pretty easy to prepare and it turned out quite well. Well at least judging from all the empty plates and heaps of bones left-over, I guess I can said it was a success.
- 1 tablespoon of honey
- 1 tablespoon of light soya sauce
- 1 tablespoon of sesame oil
- 1 tablespoon of abalone sauce
- Dash of pepper
- 1 tablespoon of ginger wine
- Clean and drain dry chicken drumsticks
- Marinate chicken and leave for 1 hour
- Apply one thin layer of honey on chicken and arrange on baking tray. Cook at 250c for 10 minutes on one side
- Overturn and apply another thin layer of honey and cook for another 10 minutes
- Remove, brush with honey (optional) and serve hot.
For confinement, the recipe book recommended pounded and squeezed ginger juice and shallots juice as part of the seasoning ingredient. When served, sprinkle with fried ginger strips.
Besides the honey chicken, I also used another 5 drumstick to prepare Black Pepper Grilled chicken. More of that in the next post.
