A recipe for Crispy Skin Chicken


1 chicken (2 1/2 lb)
1 tblsp vinegar
2 tblsp soy sauce
2 tblsp honey
1 tblsp sherry
1 tsp molasses (treacle)
2 tblsp all-purpose flour
1 tsp salt
peanut oil for deep frying

Put the chicken in a large saucepan and add boiling water to come halfway up the sides of the chicken. Cover tightly and simmer until just tender, about 45 minutes to 1 hour. Drain, rinse under cold water and dry with kitchen paper.

Mix together the vinegar, soy sauce, honey, sherry and treacle(molasses). Brush this all over the chicken and then hang the chicken in an airy place to dry, for about 30 minutes. Brush over the remaining soy sauce mixture and hang again for 20-30 minutes. Mix the flour and salt
together and rub well into the chicken skin. Fry in deep hot peanut oil until golden and crisp. Drain well on absorbent kitchen paper.

Chop the chicken into 8 pieces and serve warm with the following dips:

Cinnamon Dip:
1 tblsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1/4 tsp salt

Mix together, place in a small saucepan and heat until very hot,
stirring constantly.

Pepper and Salt Dip:
1 tblsp salt
1/2 tblsp freshly ground black pepper

Mix together, place in a small saucepan and heat, stirring constantly,
until the salt begins to brown.

Hoi Sin Sauce
Guests dip the pieces of chicken into the dips which are served
separately in small bowls.

Treacle is a this black sugar. You can use black
sugar. (NOT gula melaka) Or if you go baking section you'll find that they sell treacle.

Got this from my daily recipe subscription. This one looks pretty yummy.

Sweet and Savory Salad with Chicken


chicken breast tenders (equivalent to 6-7 per person)
2 tsp. curry powder
3 tsp. cinnamon
2 tsp. nutmeg
1 tsp. garlic, minced
3 Tbsp. olive oil
4 cups of leafy salad greens
1 cup fresh strawberries, sliced
1 cup fresh pears or peaches, sliced
1 bottle of raspberry vinaigrette dressing
1 cup honey roasted nuts (any kind)


Marinate the chicken tenders for an hour in the curry powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, and olive oil. Place in a frying pan with the garlic and cook until no longer pink in the middle (about 10 minutes). Serve hot or chilled.

Divide the salad greens onto plates. Place the chicken tenders in the center of the greens. Surround with the fruit. Pour the salad dressing onto the salads. Sprinkle with nuts.

Serve with buttered corn muffins.

Servings: 4

hi crim,

i'm quite a loser when it comes to cooking...i always use those packet mixes that u can get from the supermarkets...anyway, the Maggie Bee Hoon Goreng mix is quite good....

just fry some garlic and shallots...fry some veggies (beansprouts etc.), meat (char siew, luncheon meat, prawns etc.) till cooked...add the bee hoon and sauce and some salt to taste...& u'll get yummy fried bee hoon in no time!


New Member
Hi CRIM, always soak yr bee hoon in hot water till soft. Sori, u hv to feel it after a while , usually abt 5 min or so (oi, if u happen to dig yr nose, pls remember to wash them. HEE HEE HEE)

Yup, then flw KPO recommendations for the rest.

Also, U can either :)
- add 'jiew ching' or
- oyster sauce (but never both, otherwise, it is better if u use sea water)
- or even those bottled chili sauce. in a nutshell, how adventurous or creative do u want 2 be ?

Try it, enjoy & bon appetit !!!
