Worldfoods Fusion of Flavours - Singapore


I'm a bit behind with this challenge, I think I should've done this one last week...or was it the week before?

I've been looking forward to doing it though, I love peanuts and I love spicy food and this is a combination of both.

I followed the recipe below, just using chicken. I decided that my dish needed some kind of vegetable with it but as the fridge was bare apart from some onions that had friend had given to me from her allotment and a few red chillies I decided that I would use those.

After marinating the chicken I threaded it onto skewers and cooked it on a griddle pan. There was quite a lot of marinade left in the bowl so I decided to use it to flavour the noodles. I warmed it in a pan and then added the chilli infused noodles along with some sliced onion and chilli and stirred it through.

I chopped the peanuts with my handy chopper and fried them in the oil for a few moments and then added the chilli coconut marinade.

I served the chicken skewers on a bed of noodles with some peanut sauce on the side. My husband said that it was the best meal he's had in ages (although he does have a very short memory) and he would definitely have it again. My 2 eldest children chose to eat at friends houses so in the end we had plenty of chicken to go around the 3 of us and 2.5 year old Jack surprised me by the amount he ate. He tried the peanut sauce and, after guzzling a glass of water, declared that it was too spicy but ate all the noodles and chicken....and some more chicken....and then a bit more!

Here follows the Worldfoods recipe :
