Salted Egg Chicken


No, no. Not an Indian dish. Salted egg and Indians? I really don't know how many Indians and how many salted eggs for them, but this Indian lady? She and salted eggs? They go back many years down the memory lane. In fact, even my dad? Both of us just so love salted eggs. Pretty much says it all. Why I made Salted Egg Chicken. Ask the Chinese and they will reveal all of it about not only salted egg, but salted egg chicken (Kam Heong PrawnsChicken Wanton Soup & Chicken Black Vinegar Ginger). Even I can tell you right now. Crispy fried chicken cooked alongside salted egg yolk, chillies, shallots and scented by coriander leaves.  

Ingredients
400g chicken - cut into bite sizes
1/2 tbsp corn flour
3 salted eggs - microwave for 3 mins. Once cool down, break and lightly mash the yolk. Only the yolk please. 
4 shallots - slice thinly
3 red chillies - slice
1 small bunch of coriander leaves - slice
Oil as needed
Salt to taste

Method
Mix cornflour and a bit of salt into chicken.  Deep fry chicken, remove and keep aside.
Leave about 2 tbsp oil in the same wok.
Saute shallots and add the rest of ingredients, including fried chicken.
Stir all together and remove from heat.
