Chicken + Orange Juice = Yummy

Once again, I have run out of ideas about what to cook for dinner. Teehee....but I do have a market quite literally down the road and I get my inspiration from there. So, today, it was a lot of bell peppers, carrots, celery...and other remaining juice that I have in my fridge.



 I don't get it. I keep getting more and more juice. We keep opening the new ones leaving the half empty ones still rotting inside the fridge. So, have to make use of them la.


Today, it is orange juice. =)

I spotted some nice juicy chicken breasts in the market and made a grab for it. I know how it is, I prefer the thigh too if given the choice but I think we have had many nights of chicken drumsticks already.

Marinated the chicken breasts in orange juice, sea salt, pepper and mushroom seasoning and into the fridge it goes. A couple of hours later, the chicken breasts goes into the oven. I want it crispy and intend to use breadcrumbs later but you know how breadcrumbs burn easily when you cook it over the pan or wok? Popping it into the oven first cooks the breasts down a bit so that you don't get uncooked middle parts.


See ya later, chickens!

I made the chicken separately from the er....vegetable stew? LOL. See how I don't know where I am sometimes going with this whole cooking for the family thing? Tembak. If it goes wrong, tapau! (Takeaway). I have been cooking for the family for countless years, right? And still, the instinct and tembak method seems to work best.


I know it doesn't look appetizing, right? Hahaha but it is.

1. Cook onion
2. Garlic
3. Bell pepper
4. Tomatoes (Kids don't like chunky tomatoes so I got to bleed them to death from the beginning)
5. Celery
6. Carrot
7. Orange Juice
8. Oyster Sauce
9. A little more seasoning
(Taste as you go along. This is where discretion is used for salt, sugar and pepper)
10. Balsamic vinegar (a splash will do la, for me, cos kids don't like SOURRRRR)

The chicken got cooked right down to about 70% maybe in the oven?

The chicken breasts got covered up in a layer of egg mix and then a layer of breadcrumbs and then into the pan. Fry till it looks about like this.



I tell you it is super yummy. Served it with rice and the chicken got bathed in the 'orange vegetable stew'.

Don't ask me for measurements, I don't know. =) You got to experiment it out on your own. It's fun. Thankfully, this round it is definitely a GOOD TO GO!!!

Maid Side-Kick

I was kind of a little sad when I read the news about this - there will be no live-in Indonesian maids in Malaysia anymore.

There are pros and cons to having a live-in maid, as with everything else, but for us, we enjoyed more pros than cons. Back then, when my kids were little, we brought in a family of maids to help with...well, just about everything, and we were like two families merged into one. They ate what we ate, we sleep, they sleep, we shop, they shop, they joke, we laugh, we joke, they laugh...for me, the maid I hired was more like a sister and side-kick to me.

For that few years, I was dependent on her to mind-read my schedule and when I need or don't need help. She picked things up quickly and we ended up having lots of moments whereby we were in sync. Today, two of them are on my Facebook and we were gleefully chatting over Facebook Messenger since they've just discovered the wonders of the Internet and Social Media.

Since we were more like partners in crime, I f…

It's The Hormones Slinging All Over Ryan Gosling

Every time I do this, you know I'm PMS-ing. I am usually quite sane and well-behaved. I promise you this. But..... After watching The Notebook, I am fully convinced that Ryan Gosling is not a man. He's sex. Pure sex. And love, of course. I knew that.I love Ryan Gosling whether he looks like he just woke up on an island....ESPECIALLY when he's half-naked!!!!I love him even if he's kissing someone other than me (who he SHOULD be kissing)I love him even when he's got literally no hair.I love him eventhough without the beard thing, he looks like a schoolboy still growing out his pubic hair.I love Ryan Gosling to the core and then you tell me one other thing to make me fall in love with him even more! I feel signs of a mild heart attack already!He plays the piano. He sings. And he sings to KIDS for Halloween!I mean.....aawwwwww......how come we good women who are only sometimes a teeny weeny bit (and I mean really tiny bit) bitchy never get one of these? What?! We DO …

Grilled Salmon With Unagi Sauce

I always disagree with people who say that they are lazy to cook, it's too hard, no time, too difficult, easier to eat out....etc. I can't agree because I have found multiple ways to cook simple, cheap meals without causing too much of a ruckus to my schedule. All it takes is a little bit of planning ahead and research. And a sense of humor when it turns out...to put it nicely...sucks.

Anyway, here's one simple one that ANYONE (kids included) can cook up. Seriously simple and easy.


I love salmon but my kids don't like the smell and texture. But that doesn't mean that I can't go out to the market and spend RM11 on ONE single piece of salmon fish and make MYSELF one, right? Kids can have the overnight pizza. :-)
This is fresh from the market....man oh man! I LOVE IT!!
Wash it properly, de-bone the thing if you want to but I just left everything the way it is and just covered the fish with some of the following:-

Yup, salt, pepper and McCormick's season-all powder…
