Black Chicken Soup

Friday, May 14, 2010

Harap maaf. Dapur masak dan periuk itu berumur lebih tua dari saya. Dan saya x pandai ambil gambar.

Oh ya, I forgot to take a picture of the chicken soup nicely served in a bowl because I was too hungry. Sorry.
And I don't actually know the real name of the soup, n neither do my mum. So the name black chicken soup tu is totally fabricated. Hehe.

To marinate
  • Half a chicken
  • Pepper to taste
  • 2 tbsp of oyster sauce
  • Soy sauce (ermm..about 1/2 cup kot. Pandai2 la bajet)
For the soup
  • 4-6 Potatoes (depends on the size)
  • Huāgū mushroom (or flower mushroom. You can also use the other kind of shiitake mushroom if u like,dōnggū)
  • Ginger (about 1 inch long). Thinly sliced.
  • 2 cloves of garlic (smashed with the skin on)

  1. Marinate the chicken with the pepper, oyster sauce and soy sauce.
  2. In a pot, combine all the ingredients, along with the soy sauce and all.
  3. Add in some water until the pot is full, and then cook until the liquid is reduced to 3/4 or half of the pot. Or until the meat is tender.
  4. Eat with rice or on it's own. If u like it hot, eat it with cili padi. Yum! :)

Chicken+Coleslaw Sandwich

Daging ayam (yang dah dicarik)
Cabbage and carrot (for the coleslaw)
Black pepper
Garam secukup rasa
Slices of bread

(Sandwich is subjective. You can make it any way u want it. n for that reason, I did not put how much of each of the ingredients that u should use.)

  1. If u don't already have daging ayam yang dicarik, rebus n after dah siap, carik guna fork.
  2. Slice The cabbage and cut up the carrot. Some people like the veggies in their coleslaws to be in cube shape, KFC style. So it's up to u, really to cut or slice the cabbage n carrot anyway u want. (Maybe I should rename the sandwich to Up to You Sandwich. Huh) You might not want to slice the cabbage too thin though. Or u won't be able to taste it like what happened to me.
  3. Mix the chicken, cabbage n carrot together in one bowl with some mayonnaise. Add a pinch of salt n some pepper. Kacau until they're properly mixed. And then add in the black pepper.
  4. Spread it on a slice of bread n voila! Dah boleh makan :D It can also be eaten on its own.
* Boleh letak bawang kalau suka. Or chilli sauce.
