Easy chicken cordon bleu

Ingredients:

4 pcs. chicken breast, boneless and skinless
4 pcs .ham
4 slices cheddar cheese, (and I sliced it into sticks)
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp ground peppercorn
1/2 cup bread crumbs - add 1/8 tsp paprika and 1/8 tsp salt
1/2 cup flour
1 large egg, beaten
butter, cubed into 8 small pieces (optional)

Preparations:

Pre-heat oven into 180°C
Gently pound the chicken breast into 1/4 thickness using a meat mallet.
Season the chicken meat - sprinkle salt and ground pepper on both sides.
Place 1 ham and 2 cheese sticks on top of each breast (but I prefer putting on another 2 cheese sticks! i love cheese!) Roll up each breast an secure with a toothpick.
Dredge in flour. Then brush with beaten eggs. Then finally roll in bread crumbs mixture.
Brush the baking pan with olive oil, then place the chicken rolls.
Bake for about 20 minutes. Then layer each rolls with butter cubes. Let the butter melts on its top, the roll will absorb its flavor and will give a really nice smell.
Bake for another 15 minutes.
You may serve this your favorite sauce.

Easy country style chicken in 20 minutes

Ingredients:

3 boneless chicken breasts

½ cup of all-purpose flour

½ cup if corn meal

1 teaspoon of salt (better sea salt)

1 teaspoon of black pepper (fresh ground)

3-4 teaspoons of vegetable oil.

Preparations:

Wash the chicken , cut in halves lengthwise (mine were huge), then cut in halves (or three parts) crosswise.

Season very well: salt, pepper. Pepper should be fresh and I used a lot of it. You can add paprika (smoked),

Let the chicken stay for 4-5 minutes.

Mix flour and corn meal. Before frying your chicken, put it in flour-cornmeal mix and then fry it.

Preheat frying pan, add the vegetable oil and fry it until golden brown. You can turn it two or three times until you will reach the necessary color. Serve warm (although they are good when cold as well). Taste BEST with mashed potato!

Add to the chicken and vegetables, toss to coat. Cover and refrigerate for at least an hour or up to 6 hours.

Mouth-watering thai-style seabass

Ingredients:

1 Sea bass or any other fish
2 tbsp Tom Yam paste
4 tbsp Sweet chilli sauce
250g Lady’s fingers/Okras
1 slice of Pineapple
2 Tomatoes
2 Lime
2 Lime leaves
1 tsp Cooking oil
4 small bowls of Water

Preparations:

1) Remove scales & inards from fish if it's not done for you. Rinse & set aside.

2) Slice off the top & end of Okras. Cut Okras into halves & Tomatoes into wedges. Slice Pineapple into cubes.

3) Squeeze lime into chilli paste (tom yum + sweet sauce). Throw in the lime skin as well & mix well.

* Since it was my 1st attempt, I bought some cheap chilli paste to experiment with in case I don't succeed :)

Thai Heritage Sweet Chilli Sauce (S$1+), Holly Farms Sambal Tom Yam (S$3+). If you can't find these brands, you can use any brand of sauces that is a little spicy & sweet + tom yam paste.

4) Heat oil. Add chilli mix, vegetables & stir-fry. Add water, cover & simmer for about 1 min.

5) Add pineapples & water. Simmer for another minute. Put in fish & let it simmer for about 5-7 mins. Do not overcook or fish will not be tender.

6) Insert toothpick into fish. Fish is cooked if toothpick pierces through easily. Dish out your fish & place the serving plate on a warmer to retain its temperature. Drizzle the sauce over a plate of fragrant rice & enjoy. You'll never get enough of this Thai-style Sea bass!
