You can see I am making thsi dish in my place often as Itook new pictures today to add .
This month for which is hosted by Nicole I was paired with Rachel of Tangerine’s Kitchen . Which I thought was excelent as i love all her cooking and baking. If i wanted i could have baked something from her place as there was so much choice for baking goodies there, but I thought I will do this Garlic Chicken as this was looking really yumm and If i may say it was indeed really super yummy.
I sitcked almost to the original recipe,
I am noting what I did different here in a another color. . For the rest I followed her originam recipe which i have noted down. I halfed the recipe as 1 kg chicken was too much for just three of us. When i marinated I didn't add the egg yolk and I also added 2 tbsp of soy sauce. Didn't add the vinegear to the sauce and the capsicum ( didn't have ) Also addeed 2 tbsp of soysauce to the sauce. Added 1 tbsp ginger. And also didn't add so much oil . I would love to taste once the dish wiht that much amout of oil as i am sure it would be yummy.
Even if i didn't add so much oil , the taste still was so so goo and this is one delicious dish which is going to appear in my dinner table more often.
