Tom Yam Chicken w/ Broccoli & Papaya

Tonights' dinner was Fantastic! I've been craving for Tom Yam chicken for some time now and made it today for dinner. Very. Very Satisfied.

Whats in it? Fried Soya Sauce Chicken. Broccoli w/butter. Cold Cubed Papaya and a generous serving of Onion Tom Yam Blend.

Whats needed for this dish: (enough for a family of 2-3 adults + 2 children)

5 large chicken legs cut in half *gives you 10 good size chicken servings*

Marinate with 2 tablespoons of light soya sauce, 4 tables spoons of dark soya sauce, 4 swishes of white pepper, 2 tablespoons of black pepper and 3 tablespoons of apple vinegar.

Leave in plastic bag to marinate for as long as you can. I left it in the fridge for the whole afternoon.

To cook, deep fry or shallow fry in a pan till cooked. Takes maybe 5-8 minutes per piece?

Throw Broccoli into boiling water to cook. Take out once the colour changes from normal to bright green and its starts to look like its darkening and dip into normal temp water to stop the cooking process.

Cut up Sweet Fresh Papaya cubes and keep in freezer in the meantime. The coolness & sweetness of papaya was an excellent combo. with the hot chicken and spicy Tom Yam.

Whats needed for Onion Tom Yam Blend? (I made ALOT so I could keep it for the next couple of meals so just adjust accordingly?)

4 large red onions *sliced*
8 large fresh red chili *minced*
4 cloves garlic *minced*

1 bottle Tom Yam Paste
*I prefer Holly Farm but used another brand today bc it was out of stock*

Fry all the above till onions are soft & some are caramelised. Add in all the Tom Yam Paste from bottle and stir to cook for about 5 minutes and everything is well blended.

Put everything up on your plate. Add butter to broccoli and ITS DINNER TIME!!

My girls had Char Mee dried spicy noodles that went with this. Without the noodles, its a very low carb option and definitely something that I'd eat alot on my low carb regime AND YOU STILL LOSE WEIGHT!! WHOOOOTT!!

That being said.. dinner was FABULOUS and I'm going for my 2nd round now. Ciao people!
