After away from Penang for almost 2 weeks, I do crave for something sour and spicy. I have wanted to get my Asam Laksa fix from the hawker behind our house but with the weather so hot, I dreaded walking out of the house.
Then I was running out of idea what to cook. PiggyBeng was ever so happy if I steam him his Barramundi fillets but to be very honest, I am so bored eating the same old dish a few times a week! Luckily I bought some chicken drumsticks as spares which I normally used for lunch.
Initially i have wanted to cook pan fried curry chicken with curry leaves. I even went to pluck some curry leaves from my neighbour’s garden! Then I discovered I did not have the appropriate curry powder at home! Dang! PiggyBeng only bought those for curry fish since he cook curry fish all the time.
Therefore I have to change my menu. Luckily I spotted the Tom Yum paste which I bought for my instant noodles. Sometimes back I bought some Japanese instant noodles and the flavor sucks so I bought the Tom Yum paste to replace.
And tadaaaa…. we have Pan Fried Tom Yum Chicken!
- 2pcs Chicken drumsticks
- 1tbsp Tom Yum paste
- Lemon juice
- Cut the chicken drumsticks into thin pieces and marinate with Tom Yum paste and let it stand for 30 minutes.
- Heat up wok with some oil in medium heat and slowly pan fried the chicken pieces until cooked.
- When done, squeeze some lemon juice before serving.
This Peace Brand Tom Yum paste is not so spicy so kids can take them.
