Malaysia’s First Ever Blogger MasterChef

Hi everyone! Have you heard? Masterchef will be coming to Malaysia! I bet by now you're already bored of hearing it and just can't wait for the show to start!

Since I cannot enter Masterchef Malaysia, I grab this golden opportunity to enter Blogger Masterchef.

For this particular competition I will be writing about my signature dish. Before I tell you what my signature dish is, let me tell you the story behind this signature dish.

Three (or four) years ago, my mom asked me to roast a chicken. We have this recipe called Honey Chicken. The taste of the chicken was soooooo good but when it is eaten with rice it will taste plain. So, I googled "rice that suits roasted chicken". Then, butter rice appeared. The recipe is basic and simple but it turns out very delicious and compliment the roasted chicken. From there, I improvised the basic recipe of butter rice and honey chicken to what I call...

Roasted Chicken with Butter Rice and Potato Salad ala Wawa~

So everytime people come to my house, I will serve them with my siganature dish. They will absolutely asked for the recipe afterwards.

The improvement I made for the recipe is what is so signature and original about it that you cannot get this recipe anywhere else except here! *I think so :p*

First we will start with the roasted chicken. Why? because we need to marinate it for at least 1 hour so while waiting for it to be done, we can proceed with the rice and potato salad.

As you can see, we only need to go through 3 easy steps to make roasted chicken.

1. Prepare the ingredients:

Chicken, ginger, garlic, soy sauce, black pepper, honey, salt

2. Mix the ingredients in a bowl

3. Rub the mixture onto the chicken and marinate it for at least one hour. After that, pop into the oven for 1 hour at 190 degrees Celsius *I cannot find the symbol*
Secondly, the butter rice. For butter rice we have to parts:

1. Prepare the ingredients:

1/2 cup of butter, garlic, shallots, chicken stock, salt

2. Melt the butter

3. Put in garlic and shallots until fragrant

4. Put in Chicken stock and salt

Part 2

1. Prepare washed rice (not in picture), 1/2 cup of green capsicum, 1/2 cup of red capsicum, 1/2 cup of bombay onion (another half cup will be use for potato salad)

2. Prepare water

3. Mix in part 1 with all the ingredient above in the rice cooker and pour water until water level reaches 4. Press cook.
Potato salad would be the easiest and simplest part!

1. Boil potatoes (I use about 8) and cut into wedges

2. Put in a cup of mayonnaise

3. Put in the left over capsicum and onion and carefully mix them. Use a flexible spatula if possible.
So there you have it,

P/s: Don't forget to put in the marinated chicken into the oven! ;)

So for those of you who still haven't quite remember when will the Masterchef Malaysia launch,
It's 22nd October 2011!
Astro Ria (Channel 104)
every Saturday – Wednesday, 9.00pm
Master Class will be on every Friday, 9.00pm

And for those who still doesn't know what Masterchef is,

MasterChef is a worldwide phenomenon. A cooking reality show, that although doesn’t allow viewers to vote, has still broken viewership records in US and Australia. MasterChef is a success because not only is Food something we are all very passionate about but the show only allows amateur cooks to compete. Malaysians who love cooking but never had a chance to really showcase their skills and be appreciated, now get the opportunity! Get ready for the MasterChef phenomenon to take over Malaysia on 22nd October 2011!
