Chicken and Peanut Sauce Sandwich

This post is a continuation from Quick Pan-fried Chicken & Spicy Peanut Sauce which I've posted last week. 
I fixed a quickie brunch the following day using leftover chicken and peanut sauce as filling for a 6-inch wholemeal baguette.

Prawn & Clam Pasta

This is an easy-to-make pasta to satisfy my carbohydrate craving. By now, it's quite apparent that I'm a hopeless carbohydrate junkie from my blog posts thus far.

Angel hair pasta
Canned clams
De-shelled prawns
Chopped garlic
Fresh basil leaves
Garlic-infused oil

1. Boil the pasta in salt water (al dente)
2. Heat the pan with garlic-infused oil
3. Brown the chopped garlic, stir in the clams and prawns
4. Pour in the boiled pasta
5. Add a pinch of salt and cracked black pepper to taste
6. Throw in the basil leaves and other herbs as you desire.

Quick Pan-fried Chicken & Spicy Peanut Sauce

Inspired by one of the Malaysian famous delicacies called Satay, I was motivated to try making skewered pan-fried chicken (marinated overnight, any choice of sauce) with chunky peanut sauce. It's a quick dish to make provided that the chicken meat has been pre-marinated.

Peanut sauce:
Grounded peanuts
Curry/Chilli paste
Sugar, Salt and Pepper to taste

Sliced Onion (lightly sautéed)

Yummy and filling snack, great appetizer!

Pasta in Spicy Peanut Sauce

It was a crazy idea I had to blend some mixed nuts and make my own spicy peanut sauce. Thankfully it did not turned out as bad as I thought but the pasta was a little bland. 

Grounded nuts
Chilli paste
Garlic infused oil
Chopped garlic and onions 
A little bit of water 
Salt and pepper

Boiled pasta - al dente
Chicken meat 

It's worth trying and perfecting the taste again! So, I may consider cooking this very soon. 

Nique's: Indian Chicken Curry

Nique's most recent cooking experiments were chicken vindaloo and chicken tikka. They are both indian curry dishes, rich in spices and flavour. Since I did not have the privilege to savour the dishes, I could only do a search on the internet about the differences between these two dishes. Vindaloo is usually a chicken or lamb curry dish mixed with potatoes and it is spicy, whereas tikka which means meat, is usually chicken cutlets in marinade (a combination of aromatic spices and yoghurt).
