Grilled Chicken Fajitas

We made some grilled chicken fajitas to satisfy my Mexican food cravings:

We don’t get to eat a lot of Mexican food here in Kuching. It’s not like we can simply drive a few miles to the nearest taco stand for an al pastor taco. I think the closest Mexican restaurant to us would be over in Singapore, and that’s a pretty far journey to go just for a taco. So when we get a Mexican food craving (admittedly a rare occurrence nowadays), we have to fix it ourselves.

Easy Chicken Terrine Recipe

I made a terrine!!!

Chicken Terrine

Can you believe that? If I’ve not already been challenged enough trying to make jellies everyday, I decided to go a whole leap further and try my hands at making a terrine. I hardly eat terrines much less think of making one.

It’s one of those foods that I try maybe at a really fancy restaurant (like when we went to Chez Panisse) and then don’t even think of attempting at home. That has been one aspect of this Royal Selangor Jellyriffic Challenge that has been good. It has really pushed me to try new things and be adventurous in foods that I would not normally try.

But even then, I decided on baby steps. Some terrines call for pâté-type meats and fats and different animal parts that I’m not so used to working with. I found this recipe which called only for chicken meat. Oh yeah, I can do that!

Guinness Beer Can Chicken

This is the story of a food experiment gone awry.

Chicken Propped up on a Guinness Beer Can

It all started when I read an article in the paper about Arthur’s Day, a day to commemorate the signing of the lease on Arthur Guinness’s brewery, over 250 years ago. You know, the maker of the popular Guinness Stout beer.  The company is holding a worldwide music festival on September 22 to celebrate.

That article sparked an idea in my  head to cook something with Guinness beer in time with Arthur’s Day. But I wasn’t interested in making an Irish Stew. I wanted to revisit a cooking technique that I hadn’t done in a long time, since before we moved from San Jose to Kuching: Beer Can Chicken. In the past, I’ve gotten tasty results using Heineken beer, so I figured to try making it again, only this time using Guinness Stout instead.

That was the start of the troubles…

Assam Curry Chicken

Recently at our Friday fellowship, we celebrated a birthday by having a potluck. Most times, on our regular Friday nights, we end the night with some food but mostly it’s bought food like kolo mee, cakes and snacks. But whenever we have a celebration potluck, we all try to bring something home-cooked. It’s a good time of sharing and also a good time of discovering new foods.
