I made fettuccine pasta with cream sauce topped with grilled chicken recently
But I’m going to blog about my Thai Basil Chicken
Came across the recipe here and when the sweet day came where I felt like cooking, I found out the minced chicken I bought had expired!!!!
So we settled for maggi mee for dinner that night
The next day, the hubby helped buy the chicken from Carrefour. He brought it home only to find out that the meat had a pungent smell to it that almost made him throw up!
Cereal was my dinner that night. (It is times like these that I miss staying with my mommie!)
Quite adamant to try on this recipe, we dropped by the same damn hypermarket on Saturday only to find out that they were not selling those nicely cut and packed boneless chicken bits and had no choice but to settle with keel. Why we keep going back there to buy our chicken - well good question coz I have no idea myself!
Chicken keel according to the hubby is the part above the chicken’s butt! That made me want to throw up until I googled and found out that it’s actually the breast bone, that smart alec. But still, we’re going to BAN buying any sort of meat from this hypermarket going forward because I am seriously allergic to bones or hypermarkets that do not give us the luxury to buy nicely packed boneless chicken meat. Where are my damn options?!
This is the end product after the husband tried his very best to separate the meat from the bones, eww.
It only took me a good 10 minutes to cook it and I wasn’t 100% satisfied with it because I wanted to use minced chicken or chicken fillet to begin with! Am I the only one this fussy when it comes to such things? Besides, the recipe was okie, it might need a bit more tweaking for a bit more ooomph, which I will figure out soon.
Meanwhile, shall experiment on more recipes come this weekend.
