Try At Your Own Risk


It was the same old same old situation. I opened the fridge and I see that it is so cluttered. Half a bottle of this and half a bottle of that and all these add up and take up so much space. So. A fridge clearing exercise was in order.


So what do we have here? Half a bottle of chili bean sauce, half a bottle of plum sauce and slightly more than 1/4 of a bottle of wholegrain mustard. It takes a bit of madness to mix all these three together. So.


To that I added some crushed garlic. I must have garlic with everything except cake.

Then I marinated three chicken legs with that weird concoction. After a few hours, into the oven it went.


It looked pretty good don't you think?


And it was actually very good. One of the most delicious creations to come out from a combination of odd ingredients. But that is my opinion. 


Since I liked it, I'll post the recipe here. Just in case I want to eat that weird but delicious chicken again.

  3. The colour of the roasted chicken looked so appetizing! When you say it was very good, it would be fabulous & heavenly to me! I tried to imagine the taste from your ingredients and could see that it has unique flavours coming from the garlic, plum sauce and mustard.

  4. I don't think those 3 sauces = madness...it sounds like a very logical combination to me. I don't buy these sauces coz I know I won't be able to finish them before they expire (hey, I see one of yours has a 2018 expiry date, so you have lots of time to finish that one). Hmmm, I see 3 chicken legs here....I wonder who ate two? :D

    1. I thought that the mustard would make it weird but it didn't. Who ate two? Hmmmm.....who ah? Wahahaha!!

  5. Well, I think the mustard is the odd one out. The other 2, I'm pretty sure you can find restaurant dishes that do mix them together. :P

    1. Your are right. That's what I thought too. But it turned out well, so it wasn't so odd after all :)

  6. Yes, it sure looks really good and I am sure it tastes great too. Looks like ayam percik but of course, it will taste completely different - not the same ingredients.

  7. Hi Phong Hong,
    I know I must make this to know what it taste like ... but just let me make aa guess : slightly salty, spicy and sourish.
    But these drumsticks look good.

    1. Hi Karen! It was salty and spicy and I think it would be very nice if some honey was added too.

    1. hah..hah...yes, mustard seems to blend well with marinades of any sort.

  15. chili bean sauce = spicy salty
    plum sauce = sweet
    wholegrain mustard = unique hot taste
    So I guess the combination of taste would be very flavourful - spicy, salty, sweet and hot, just perfect for those who love flavourful food.
