Tom Yum Chicken LTU #14


Thanks everyone for the kind regards, I am now getting much much better but is like cannot completely recover, the blocking ear, the aching gum is just so irritating that affecting me. Yesterday afternoon went to take a xray on my gum to rule out gum inflection, and my gum and teeth have no cause of it. And now, the next suggestion is ENT! Gosh is like Merry-Go-Round, what will be the next :(. 

I wish I can split into multiples, seem so many things for me to settle, the coming trip, the work, the helper going back home, my health... er... headache headache!

Anyway back to my today post. This was 1st eaten when at Cass's place which I fell in love with 1st bite :D. 

Recipe adapted from Cass and Cooking Crave with some modification.

Ingredients : 
6 large chicken drumsticks with thigh, skinned and remove fats

Marinated Ingredients :
2 tbsp tom yum paste
8-10 shallots, skinned
5 clove garlics, skinned
3 red chillies, seeded and cut into small pieces

4-5 small hot chillies/cili padi (you may omit if you cannot take too spicy)
4 pieces kaffir leaves, cut into small pieces
1 tbsp honey
1 tbsp brown sugar (original is 2 tbsp honey)
some salt

1. Wash chicken, remove skin and all the excessive fat. Use knife to cut few lines on it for better marinade. (I normally use fork to prick)
2. Blend all the marinade ingredients until fine and in paste form, do not add any water.
3. Rub the ground ingredients onto the chicken and marinate for at least 2 hours or preferably over night.
4. Wrap the chicken individually with aluminum foil, you can line it with a piece of banana leave too. (You may put the chicken in the baking tray and cover the tray with aluminum foil.
4. Bake in peheated oven at 200C for 30-35 mins.

Adjust the flavour according to your own preference and it's also depend on brand of tom yum paste used. When the chicken is cooked, there will be some chicken juice inside the aluminium foil. Don't throw that away, that's the best tom yum soup you can ever have!!

This dish is so delicious and yet easy to prepare, definitely a keeper!
