Following the previous recipe on soya chicken dish made with Angel soya sauce and Angel Oyster sauce. I thought of trying out a recipe with their Sriracha hot chili sauce. I was browsing reddit just happened to came upon an entry on GifRecipes featuring roast chicken that uses sriracha sauce as seasoning, so I thought, why not try something similar?

So here is my roast chicken with Angel Sriracha hot chili sauce recipe.

Ingredients (main):

  • 4-5 tablespoon of Angel Sriracha hot chili sauce
  • 3 tablespoon equal portion of brown sugar
  • 2 chicken quarter (leg part)
  • 1 bulb of garlic (dice)
  • capsicum
  • 2 red onion
  • 100 gram shiitake mushroom (optional)
  • 2-3 tablespoon of butter

Ingredients (sides):

  • 1 potato
  • 1 sweet potato
  • 1 slice of pumpkin

Cooking instructions (side):

  • cut the root vegetables into cubes and put in baking pan
  • add olive oil, salt, and pepper
  • heat up oven to 200 Celsius and bake for 35 mins

It’s good to start this first and put it in oven, take the additional 15 mins or so to prepare for the main dish and have everything in the oven done at the same time since the chicken will take some 20 minutes in the oven.

Mix all up in a plate and serve!

I found that Angel Sriracha hot chili sauce is probably slightly spicier than those I’ve had before, and that suits me just fine. With brown sugar and oven heat treatment, the sauce gave the roast chicken skin a pretty sweet and spicy note which compliments the meat very well. There’s no condiments on the side necessary at all for this dish. I’m glad that it worked out pretty well.

You can always modify the side dishes a little to suit your need for this dish, give it a try!

It’s funny how sometimes the restaurants closest to us is the one that manage to miss from the radar screen while we seek out for others located miles away that offers similar food.

Such is the case for Hoe Fong chicken rice at Seapark that offers a version of chicken rice very similar to the stall under the tree at Segambut and Jiang He at Imbi.

Hoe Fong is located at Seapark opposite the morning market and offers a version of chicken rice that is unlike the usual. Instead of steamed and roast chicken, they have the chicken deep fried in boiling hot cooking oil and then serve with a few slices of cucumber.

A plate of chicken rice is RM 6.50 and comes with rice and soup as well as chili paste and minced ginger as condiments. A popular thing to do is adding dark soya sauce on the aromatic rice.

Hoe Fong also happen to serve Penang loh bak that turned out to be one of the better versions I tried in Klang Valley. If you’re a fan of loh bak, you should really give this a try.

Of the various type of meat that is popular in Asian kitchen, duck is often considered a bit of an after thought in this country. While you can find pork, beef, chicken, and mutton in almost every supermarket, duck is usually a bit harder to obtain.

The fact is, duck is just not a very popular meat here, and my best guess is the “duck smell” that many dislike, and that it is also less versatile and at the same time, more expensive than chicken.

That being said, stew duck is one of my favorite poultry dishes. My mom used to make this a couple times a year during festive seasons, and most of the time we’d finish the whole duck rather quickly.

As it turned out, while the process takes quite some time, stew duck isn’t a particularly difficult dish to cook.

This recipe is one that I find pretty simple to follow, and yet yield a pretty good result.

The duck will shrink a bit after cooking. I prefer to cut them into bite size before serving, but that can get a little tricky when it’s piping hot.

The stew duck goes well with white rice, and for those who loves garlic, you’ll also enjoy that bulb of garlic that is now soft and soaked with rich ducky flavor!

Happy cooking! For those who doesn’t care about cooking, you can have some good stew duck at Fatty stew duck at restaurant Okay, or the stew duck stall at PJ State.
