  • Baked & Fried Rice Chicken

    Chicken & Chorizo Baked Rice

    This type of rice dish similar to ‘Paella’ is hard to cook without a good source of heat. I have tried some different methods and now I believe the easiest and the best method is baking in the oven after cooking over the cooktop. Makes 4 Servings Ingredients 500g Chicken Thigh FilletsSalt & Pepper2 tablespoons …

  • Baked & Fried Rice Curry

    Curry Doria

    I used to make ‘Curry Doria’ when I had left-over Curry and cooked Rice. It’s quite simple to make. Mix the left-over Curry and cooked Rice, loosely fill a baking dish, cover with White Sauce and some shredded Cheese, and bake in the oven until golden. However, I rarely have left-over Curry and Rice these …

    Chicken & Tofu Burgers with Teriyaki Sauce

    I like to eat my ‘Chicken & Tofu Burgers’ with ‘Ponzu’ mixed with grated Daikon Radish and a little bit Chilli, but this ‘Teriyaki Sauce’ is also really good! ‘Teriyaki Sauce’ is usually made with Soy Sauce, Mirin and Sugar. For this dish, I added Rice Vinegar, that makes the sauce next level. Makes 6 …

  • Chicken Curry

    My Family’s Chicken Curry

    I am Japanese and I used to use Japanese curry roux to make curry because curry is supposed to be made with the roux. However, after 20 years in Australia, I gradually came to dislike the flavour of store-bought roux and started making this curry. Now I am writing down this recipe for my children …

    Sweet & Sour & Spicy Chicken

    Everyone loves ‘Sweet & Sour Chicken /Pork’. I simply wanted to make the dish spicy hot! I usually don’t have fresh chilli, but a jar of Toban Djan (Chili Bean Sauce) is in the fridge for always, so I added it to the ordinary sweet & sour chicken. This dish is now everyone’s favourite! Makes …

    Lazy ‘Yakitori’

    Why lazy? Because they are not on skewers. Sometime I want to eat ‘Yakitori’ but I don’t want to bother making them. If it is just for myself or family dinner, this is good enough, isn’t it? My favourite ‘Yakitori’ is ‘Negima’, Chicken & Spring Onion, seasoned with just salt and pepper. The lazy version …

    ‘Kara-age-Ko’

    ‘Kara-age-Ko’ is a seasoned flour used for, most commonly, fried chicken in Japan. ‘Kara-age Chicken’ can be made in many different ways and I have my own recipe, but my mother used to use a store-bought ‘Kara-age-Ko’ when she prepared our bento lunch in the morning. It was the quickest way to make fried chicken, …

    Chicken Parma

    ‘Chicken Parmigiana’ is commonly called ‘Chicken Parma’ or simply ‘Parma’ in Australia. Some Aussies call it ‘Parmy’ or ‘Parmie’. It is a staple pub food and typically served with a side of chips and salad, as I have seen last twenty-plus years. It’s a chicken breast dish but not low-calorie at all. I placed chips …

  • Baked & Fried Rice Chicken

    Basic Oven-Baked Pilaf

    I love rice dishes. ‘Takikomigohan’, ‘Mazegohan’, baked rice and fried rice, and all other rice dishes. In Melbourne, I have a great access to a huge variety of rice and I enjoy cooking them. However, cooking rice in a saucepan or a frying pan can become tricky because I sometimes forget about rice when I …

  • Chicken Mazegohan

    Chicken & ‘Shiso’ Mazegohan

    ‘Shiso’ (Perilla) is so difficult to find where I live. It is something you can’t use for cooking if you are not growing yourself. But now I know one Asian grocery store that sells Perilla. It is a different type from Japanese ‘Shiso’, but it has same texture and fragrance. If you have ‘Shiso’ (Perilla) …

    Mock Peking Duck

    I call this ‘Chinese Souvlaki’. The pancakes for this dish are super easy to make. At least much easier than making Greek flat bread. The whole duck is not easily accessible for many people. Why don’t you use chicken? Roast a whole chicken in the ‘Peking Duck’ flavour OR my ‘Teriyaki Chicken’ can be a …

    Peking-inspired Roast Chicken

    The dish of ‘Peking Duck’ is extremely expensive at the Chinese restaurants. It’s a nice dish but I always tend to think that I can cook chicken like this and it would be yummy and a lot cheaper. This roast chicken can be cooked just like ordinary roast chicken, and serving it with the Savoury …

  • Chicken Mushrooms

    Chicken & Shiitake Skewers

    Just two ingredients and a little bit extra effort make this amazing dish. When you find thick & plump fresh Shiitake (mushrooms), please try it! Chicken can be thigh, breast or tenderloin, but Chicken and Shiitake need to be cut to similar sizes so that they will be cooked evenly. Same as ‘Yakitori’, if you …

    Lemongrass & Chilli Chicken Stir-fry

    My daughter is a big fan of South East Asian cooking. Thai and Vietnamese cuisines are very popular in Australia. This chicken stir-fry is a copy of my daughter’s stir-fry.
