Knorr Blogger Cookout (with Stir Fried Tom Yam Chicken & Hainanese Pork Chop Recipe)
There is nothing quite like a delicious meal that brings families and friends together. Especially the moment you see families and friends enjoying the food prepared with love and joy, it is probably one of the best motivations.
Creating these moments and cooking up a storm at home for your loved ones is actually more simple, effortless and enjoyable than most people would think. Just yesterday, I went for Knorr Blogger Cookout with local award-winning celebrity chef – Chef Daniel Koh – and learnt his family recipes-inspired dishes, Stir Fried Tom Yam Chicken.
Stir Fried Tom Yam Chicken
INGREDIENTS: (For 2-4 pax)
1 chicken breast
1 cube Knorr Tom Yam Stock
1 tbsp Knorr Hao Chi
1/2 lime slice
1/3 tsp lime zest
1 stick lemon grass, cut into small pieces
1 lime leave julienne
1 tbsp chopping onion
2 garlic, sliced
1 chilli padi, diced
1 stalk basil
1 tbsp coconut milk
1. Dissolve 1 Knorr Tom Yam cube in 250ml of water.
2. Slice chicken breast and season with Knorr Hao Chi.
3. Heat pan with oil and fry chicken for 1-2 minutes. Remove and set aside.
4. Fry onion, garlic, lemongrass, lime leave till fragrant and add Knorr Tom Yam stock.
5. Bring to boil and add the rest of the ingredients, including the chicken breast.
6. Simmer until sauce becomes almost dry and lace with coconut milk. Serve
Chef Daniel took about 15 mins to prepare and another 15 minutes to cook. It is quite simple especially for busy working adults who have no time for cooking!
After Chef Daniel is done with the cooking, we also experiment with your own family recipe under the guidance of Chef Daniel. And being a Hainanese, I initially wanted to cook Chicken Rice, but the process is too long. So in the end, I whipped up Hainanese Pork Chop with the help of the boyf! 🙂

FOR PORK CHOPS
1. Tenderise the meat by pounding it using a meat mallet or the back of a chopper.
2. Marinate the pork slices for at least 30 minutes or even overnight for more flavour.
3. Before frying, pour the beaten eggs onto a plate or into a shallow bowl. Dip both sides of each pork slice in the beaten egg.
4. Coat each side with breadcrumbs, patting to get an even layer. Gently shake off the excess breadcrumbs.
5. Heat your wok or pan with oil over medium-low heat. Fry each breaded pork slice until golden brown and crisp.
