(咸蛋黄奶油鸡翅)


Salted Egg Yolk Chicken with Chips has a similar preparation as the above but instead of fillet I swap it with mid-joints. As usual you need to deep-fried the chicken but for an oil-free version you can bake it in either an Airfryer or Oven at 180 degree for about 30 minutes or until cooked and crisp on the outer skin. After which just toss them into salted egg sauce before serving with some homemade potato chips.

500g of chicken mid joint
2 salted egg yolks

2 garlic cloves, minced

Marinade:
2 tablespoons cooking wine
1/2 tablespoon light soy sauce
1 teaspoon sesame oil
1 teaspoon turmeric powder
1/2 teaspoon chicken stock powder
Dash of pepper

Method:
1. Clean and trim chicken mid-joint before marinate it with marinade for at least an hour.

2. Meanwhile steamed salted egg yolks on medium heat for 10 minutes. Remove and mashed it finely using a fork. Set aside.

3. Using the same oil for frying potato chips, add in chicken mid-joints (lightly coat with cornstarch) in two batches and fry until crisp and golden brown in colour.

4. Empty oil into a bowl, clean frying pan with kitchen paper towel before adding in butter, curry leaves and minced garlic.

5. Saute on low heat till fragrant, stir in mashed salted egg yolks and sliced chilli. Cook on low heat for another 20 seconds.

* 6. For a creamy sauce add in 2 tablespoons of cooking cream or coconut milk and mix well. (*this step is optional)

7. Lastly toss in chicken mid-joint and coat well with salted egg sauce. Remove and serve it on top of the prepared potato chips.
