Chicken Fire Poppers (dinnerthendessert)


2 eggs
1/2 t garlic powder
1/2 t onion powder
1 lb chicken tenders, cut into 1 – 2″ pieces
1 1/2 c panko bread crumbs

In a large skillet or your cast iron skillet, heat about 1/2″ canola oil over medium-high heat. Fry chicken on both sides until golden and crispy, about 2 – 3 min each side. Don’t worry about if the center is done, just get it crispy and browned, then put the pieces into a 9 x 13″ baking pan. Pour the sauce over the fried chicken and carefully stir to make sure it is coated. Bake the chicken covered, for 15 min. Remove chicken from the pan and with a spatula to scrape out the sticky sauce, pour the sauce over the plate of chicken.

3 lb whole chicken, cut up into pieces
6 – 8 dried red chilies
2/3 c low sodium soy sauce

1 fresh green chili sliced (opt)

Soak the sweet potato noodles in warm water and set aside until ready to use. Place chicken in a pot and pour some water to cover the chicken. Bring it to full boil and cook for a few min. Remove chicken and discard water. Return chicken to the pot and add the dried chilies. In a bowl combine soy sauce, oyster sauce, water, garlic, ginger, sugar, cocoa powder, corn syrup and pepper.

Chinese Lion’s Head Pork Meatballs (omnivorescookbook)

1 lb ground pork (lean fat ratio 7:3) (can sub beef, chicken or shrimp)
4 T Shaoxing wine (or Japanese sake)
3 T light soy sauce
1 t dark soy sauce
3 t salt
1 T sugar
1 t grated ginger
1/2 c minced scallion or green onion
1 T cornstarch
12 – 15 water chestnuts, finely chopped (generate about 1 c)
3 eggs
1 c panko
2 T sesame oil
1 T peanut oil or vegetable oil

Put ground pork into a large bowl. Add 4 T water. Mix well with a spatula until water is fully incorporated. Add Shaoxing wine, light soy sauce, dark soy sauce, salt, sugar, grated ginger, cornstarch and scallion. Mix well. Add chestnuts and eggs. Mix a few times. Add panko. Mix well. Add sesame oil, mix until it forms a soft paste. Heat peanut oil in a nonstick skillet over medium heat until warm. Use bare hands to scoop about 1/3 c of the paste and shape it into a meatball. The meatball should be a bit runny, barely able to hold its shape (so the finished meatballs will be tender and juicy). If the meatballs cannot hold their shape, add a bit more panko and mix again. If the meatballs are still a bit tough, blend in more water and mix well, 1 T at a time until the paste turns soft. Carefully place 3 – 4 meatballs in the skillet and make sure to leave enough space to flip them. When the bottom side is just set, carefully roll the ball with a spatula to cook the other sides. Continue to do this until all sides are set and browned. Transfer to a plate. Continue to brown the rest of the meatballs. Add water to a steamer and place the plate of meatballs on the steaming rack. Heat the steamer over medium high heat, covered until the water begins to boil. Turn to medium heat. Cook covered until the meatballs are cooked through, in 40 min. Cook the second batch by using the same method. After cooking the first batch, check the water level and add more if it runs too low. Serve warm. Storage and reheat. Store the meatballs in an airtight container in the fridge for 3 days or in the freezer for up to 2 months. After steaming, the meatballs will render some fat and liquid. Drizzle it on the meatballs before storage, to keep the them tender and moist. The best way to reheat the meatballs is by steaming, the same method used to cook them. The meatballs will heat up evenly and still be moist inside. Alternatively, you can use the microwave. Make sure the container has some liquid (leftover grease or 1 t water) inside. Please a loose lid on top and heat it up in the microwave. Note: It can be difficult to keep the meatballs in shape, because the meat mixture is quite runny. You need to handle them gently, so the balls won’t break apart. You can cook the top and bottom sides first, like cooking a very thick burger patty. Then you can use two spatulas to let the meatball stand, to cook the edges. The meatballs won’t look very pretty, but will still taste great.

2 T soy sauce
3 T brown sugar
2 T vegetable oil

Massage marinade into the wings to evenly disperse. Marinate for at least a few hours, preferably overnight. When ready to cook, pour the wings and marinade into a large bowl.

Garnishes (opt)

Just before the wings are ready, remove the wings from the grill and put them back into the bowl and toss in the marinade, then put back on the BBQ and sear quickly on both sides.

To Bake: Preheat oven to 350 F and put the rack in the top part of the oven. Line a baking tray with baking paper and place a rack on it. Remove wings from the marinade and spread out over the rack.

Turkey Poutine (rockrcipes)


2 – 3 c shredded leftover turkey
1 1/2 c leftover dressing or stuffing
1 1/2 c cheese curds
3/4 c cranberry sauce, room tempn
french fries

Use real cheese curds if you can find them. They should also be at room temp for best results. The turkey and stuffing should be heated in the microwave. It is essential to have boiling hot gravy for this dish, so be sure to have that simmering on the stove and at the ready. Hot French fries are also essential so that the combined heat of all of the ingredients will help the cheese curds to melt. Start by placing the french fries in the bottom of 4 serving bowls, followed by a layer of stuffing and shredded turkey. Add cheese curds on top and pour the gravy slowly over the cheese curds to get them starting to melt. Serve with a dollop of the cranberry sauce on the side. Note: Fresh cheese curds are best for this recipe but are not always easy to find. Fresh mozzarella cubes make an acceptable substitution in a pinch. Many fast food restaurants in Canada will substitute grated mozzarella for cheese curds but if you choose to do that, small diced cubes are better but be sure that they are at room temp before the gravy is poured on. Serves 4.

French Fries

6 large or 6 medium size russet potatoes
oil for frying
kosher salt for seasoning

The best, most crispy fries are always cooked in two stages at 2 different temp. Wash or peel your potatoes and cut them into fries. The size of the fries is up to you but shoestring size, about 1/4″ square always maximizes the crispy flavour. Hold the fries at room temp in lukewarm water until ready to fry. Lay them out on layers of paper towels and pat dry with additional paper towels immediately before frying. Add oil to the deep fryer and bring it to 350 F. Fry potato sticks until just beginning to crisp but not brown; about 6 – 8 min for shoestring fries. Remove from oil and drain on paper towels. These fries will likely go limp as they cool. This is perfectly normal. They will re-crisp in the second fry. Turn off the deep fryer until ready to fry again. When you are ready to serve the fries, bring the oil up to 375 F in the deep fryer. Fry for an additional 6 – 8 min or until the fries begin to turn a light golden brown and become quite crispy. Remove from oil and toss with a pinch of kosher salt to season.
