Chick Eats

If there’s one ingredient bound to shake up your menu in more ways than one, it’s chicken. Fried, steamed, marinated, roasted or poached, it is an incredibly versatile ingredient. Not only is it inexpensive, it works well with other dishes and is fairly easy to meld with different sauces. It is also a great source of protein if you’re counting calories! When it comes down to popularity, our chicken recipes range from authentic to fusion-style cooking - at times, combining ingredients with techniques, both familiar and not. From slathering juicy chicken thighs in toasted fragrant rempah to stir-frying tender chicken pieces in hot, black pepper sauce, the chicken is a quintessential ingredient, prepared in a multitude of ways.
