Rojak Roast Chicken

Another home-cooking post. Coz that's what I like, and also one of the things I am good at (Not good at cooking canggih gourmet food, but good at cooking simple home-cooked food from anything I could find in the fridge). Don't mind or don't get bored ya?

I was on leave yesterday because I had to take Kenzie boy back from my parent's place, and after that, took him for his 2.5 year old jab at his paed's (2nd dose of Hep A). He stayed at my parent's from Sunday evening until yesterday afternoon as his nursery closed from Monday til yesterday.

Anyway, back to this post. When you see the word "rojak", no no no, it doesn't mean I marinated the chicken with the black rojak sauce. Haha. It means I marinated the chicken with anything available at my kitchen counter, and chuck in with whatever vegetables I could find in the fridge.

My all-time favourite McCormick's Italian Herbs spices have finished. So for the marinate, I make do with: Soya sauce, pepper, oyster sauce and Lea & Perrin's sauce. I also chuck in some lemon, an onion, carrots and potatoes for taste. Before baking (at 190 degrees for 1 hour), I threw in a blob of butter for the extra rich-ness.

Rojak roast chicken

And since I did not go to work yesterday, I made the effort and cooked more varieties for dinner, because usually on weekdays, I don't cook, as it's already late when I reach home from work. The hubs cooks, because he usually reaches home earlier.  And normally it's just "chin tan chau choy" kinda food. Or I call it the 3F's (Fried egg, Fried fish, Fried vege) kinda food.

So, for my own record, I also cooked these for dinner yesterday:

Chicken herbal soup ("yoke zhok" & "pak kei")

Minced pork taufu

Bittergourd fried egg

    2. Maybe I should put an "inverted comma" on the word Rojak, no?

    1. The soup I only put "yoke zhok" and "pak kei" only. I don't like fancy fancy herbs and make the soup dark in colour. I like plain-coloured soups actually.

      Ooohh, you like fukua egg too? Yeah, the tactic is to rendam the fukua in salted water for hours, then it won't be so bitter. When fried with egg, wah, sedap tau! (self-praise).. haha..

  8. I like McCormick brand of seasonings. They have the best herbs to make spaghetti sauces!
    I am very sure your roast chicken was a hit lah. You should slowly experiment and cook more dishes like Rojak Soup, Rojak Cake, Rojak Fish and change your blog title to Rojak Blogger!!

    Muahahahahahahahahaha....!!!
