Cook Cook Cook

I've taken into cooking during weekends, first, i get to improve my culinary skills, second i save from eating outside.

Usually wifey and i will go to Midvalley to shop for the fresh stuff on Friday nights so that i can store over the weekend for cooking whatever we fancy. The condiments are getting more and more and more.

Mostly i make meals with chicken breast, since chicken is white meat, and it's better off than pork or beef. Sometimes i cook fish, or prawns with rice.

Tried a few meals over the past 2 weekends, some turned out ok, some didn't turn out so well. Have to tune my recipies a bit more. Hehehehe.

Ah well anyhow this one turned out quite nice, eat liao feel sleepy.

Ehh this is supposed to be red wine chicken. Got this recipe somewhere in the net since i dunno what to cook with the balance chicken. I didn't garnish it. Just me and wife eating nia

Ingredients
2 tablespoon Oil
garlic 2 clovers
chicken
half cup sugar
1 cup red wine (up to you how much u want to put)
pinch of salt
chili powder (i didn't put this as i didn't have it)

How to
-First, heat up the oil
-Put in the garlic and "pao hiong" ehh let it cook a bit for the smell
-Next put in the chicken pieces, depends on how you want to cut it also can
-Cook the chicken until you see no more pink bits, don't over cook as you still have to let it simmer in the red wine for a short while
- Sprinkle in the sugar, and chili powder(i didn't put this, dunno how it will taste if i put it)
- Pour the red wine around the chicken pieces, and slowly baste(use scoop to scoop the wine over the chicken) the chicken.
- Let it simmer together until the sauce thickens a bit, and then you can serve it liao, garnish it with whatever you want
- Warning this dish is a bit sweet, hahaha the sauce turned out like some char siu sauce, but with the red wine inside, :) Yum to me, don't know if anyone will like it ^^

Enjoy
