Oriental Style Chicken Fillet with Fried Onion

The oven at home had been rather busy lately since I've been cooking on daily basis. Last night I decided to give it a rest and cook the chicken fillet the conventional way with the oriental spices.

Oriental Chicken Filler with Fried Onions, the one plate complete meal.

My portion, not as lavish.

My little ones' portion, all cut into thin slices. My duo loved the chicken fillet so much so they were fighting for more and I had to top up more from my own fillet.

Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 20 minutes
Serving for: 4  


Ingredient A- the Fillet
4 slices of chicken breast, approximate 600gm. Remove fats and clean
A table spoon of corn flour 

Ingredient B - the Marinate
2 gloves chopped garlic 
A dash of salt
A dash of pepper
Few drops of sesame oil
1 tablespoon of Shao Xin wine (skip this for little ones)
A dash of paprika powder (optional)
2 tablespoon of soya sauce 

Ingredient C - Fried Onion Rings
2 onions, cut into rings  
A dash of salt 
1 medium egg, beaten 
1 table spoon of corn starch

The Making:

1. Using a meat tenderizer, beat both sides of the fillet until soften, but not mashed. If the fillet is too thick, you may want to slice it into half, to about 1" thickness.

2. Marinate the chicken fillet with ingredient B for at least an hour. Flip the filler over to ensure they are all coated in the marinate sauce. I marinated mine over night in the fridge.

3. Heat up 2 big tablespoon of olive oil in a skillet, coat the chicken fillet with a thin layer of corn flour, then gently lay the chicken fillet into the pan. Cook for about 5 minutes or until it is thoroughly cook; turn to the other side and repeat the same. 

4. Set the chicken fillet aside.

5. Soak the onion into the egg liquid, add a dash of salt to taste, then coat it with  corn flour.

6. In the same pan (or a clean pan if this has became sticky), heat up a table spoon of olive oil, toss in all the coated onion rings and let them cook for about 3 minutes until them turns golden brown. Remove from heat immediately.

To serve, just serve the chicken fillet with the fried onion on the side and some veggies. You may cut them into small cutlets and serve to the little ones for easier chewing.

Happy dining!
