Well it’s Friday again and you know what that means…it’s "Taste the World" time!! Feel free to look back at the intro to see what I’m talkin’ about, and click on "Taste the World" on the sidebar and you can easily access the previous recipes that have been discussed! Right now we’re focusing on Chinese food until the end of the month, and then in April we’ll be trying out a new country’s food! YUM! If you have a favourite Chinese recipe, please feel free to leave a link in the comment section for me to share with others!
So, as mentioned in my menu planner from Monday, I made Baked Teriyaki Chicken this past week! I didn’t do fried rice, but just regular rice and stir-fried veggies. If you missed the recipe link from my blogger buddy Emily @ Inspired Homemaking, check out the menu plan here!
Firstly, here is the picture of the meal:
Now on to the review…
DELICIOUS! We really enjoyed it. The ingredients definitely reminded me of my Quebecois Chicken recipe, but there was an extra zest (presumably the cayenne pepper!) that tasted really delicious. Paired with the rice and veggies it definitely felt "Asian"! Both my husband and I really enjoyed it, and my husband’s plate was practically licked clean! So all in all, a winner from Hospitality Haven!
The only variation that I made on this recipe is that it calls for it to be baked in the oven and covered with the juices on and off throughout the baking process. However, this week is ridiculous for me, so I cheated. I marinaded the chicken overnight in the ingredients, and then I put it all in the crock pot for the day on low for 4-6 hours. I’m sure it wasn’t as "baked", but it still worked and was still very tasty!
Here are a couple more pictures of our trip to Hong Kong:
Here we are with the Jumbo Floating Restaurant. It’s a HUGE restaurant that is a boat that floats! Very cool.
Here are some random eggs. Our tour guide didn’t know the name in English. Any guesses?
Are you adventurous enough to join in?? Link up to Taste the World here @ Hospitality Haven and come back each Friday to link up how it’s going for you. Make sure that each Monday if you post a menu plan that you include a Chinese dish you’re trying for the week. I look forward to sharing in this adventure with you!
