Apple Foldovers

dsc05130

I saw how easy it is to make Apple Foldovers on Asian Food Channel, so I decided to give it a try! And indeed it is easy!

The secret to the apple stuffing is to add a dollop of butter when you’re cooking the apples over the stove!

How to Make:

  • 5 small Royal Gala Apples (chopped)
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tsp of cinnamon (I like a stronger taste)
  • 1 TBSP of water
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 1/2 a lemon (juiced)

Simmer the above ingredients for about 20 min till apples are soft & brown & thick.

Add

  • 1TBSP of flour
  • 1 dollop of butter (around 1 TBSP)
  • 1 tsp of vanilla essence

Stir until mixture thickens.

Cut 25cmx25cm pre-made puff pastry sheets into quaters.

Fill each quater with 1TBSP of apple stuffing.

Seal edges of puff pastry with egg wash. Press down & use back of the knife to “cut” in semi circular patterns on the edges.

Bake in oven at 175 degree celsius for 25 minutes.

This is a very easy to make desert for any occasion!

Dijon Mustard Chicken Breast

DSC07161 - chicken breast (small).JPG

Since I’ve not cooked for the longest time, I’ve been yearning to find some time to cook & some willing friends aka guinea pigs to dare to try my cooking! (dunno why somehow I give people the impression I’m hopeless in the kitchen)

I remember I saw this recipe on Ready Steady Cook when it was aired in Manchester and really wanted to try it out at home! Finally I can! haha…. BUT, when I went online to search for the recipe they didn’t have it! 😦 So adventurous lil me went to innovate my very own Dijon Mustard Chicken Breast recipe! (Bet if my friends knew they would’ve backed out immediately)

Luckily, it turned out wonderful! the chicken breasts were nice and juicy with lotsa flavour, not to say extremely unique!

Heehee…. served it with a side of my famous creamed mushrooms, sauteed onions and japanese salad. And of course I ended off the sumptuous dinner with my speciality – Tiramisu!!!! Yummm…

Here’s my recipe:

Mustard Stuffing:

  • 4 TB of Dijon mustard
  • 3 teaspoons whole mustard seeds in cider vinegar
  • 2 TB of Mayonnaise
  • 2 TB of butter (softened)
  • 1 teaspoon of chopped garlic

4 whole chicken breasts with skin

How to prepare:

  1. Cream all the ingredients of the mustard stuffing together until well mixed
  2. Use your finger and make a little pocket under the chicken skin
  3. Put a spoonful of stuffing into the pocket until it filled and bulges out like a pillow
  4. Coat a large rectangular Pyrex dish with olive oil
  5. Place chicken breasts onto a large rectangular pyrex dish with skin facing upwards
  6. Sprinkle salt, ground black pepper and some mixed herbs over the chicken
  7. Cook in a pre-heated oven at 200 degrees celsius for 30min.
