Honey Sesame Roasted Chicken + Braza, Darling Harbour 蜜汁芝麻烤鸡 + Eileen的爱人到访悉尼


上星期四Eileen的爱人, Mr. C来悉尼工作,我把握时机,约了他去一巴西餐馆, Braza吃晚餐!这餐厅是我的丈夫推荐的,卖点是任吃24种巴西式烧烤食品再加12种小菜!虽然之前只在Skype和Mr. C打过一次招呼,但当两个好谈的人相遇时,话题箱很轻易地便打开,东南西北无所不谈,只差没八卦地问他和Eileen是怎样认识的,哈哈! 除了用餐,也不忘跟Penang的五朵金花交换纪念品。再次要谢谢妳们的礼物,也要谢谢Mr. C充当我们的国际邮差!
Last week, we had a friend who came to Sydney to work for a few days & this friend is actually our Missy Eileen’s husband, Mr C.  Since his stay in Sydney was quite a rush, we wasted no time but decided to meet up in Darling Harbour for dinner on last Thu.  Living in Sydney for so many years, I still do not dare to drive across the Sydney Harbour Bridge, so, that night, I had no choice but to catch a bus, then train with few bags & a camera that I was carrying with. There was an awkward moment when my bags were stuck between the seats when I struggled my way out of the train during busy hours & now that I thought of it, it was quite funny!

Mr C has become our “international postman” & we didn’t miss out the chance of having some gifts in exchange with the ladies from Penang & these ladies are EileenJocelineAngieCasey & Mandy! Thanks again for the gifts! Though I only met with Mr C once via Skype, we had a lot to talk about, from A to Z, from East to North, hehe! He is a very nice guy.  And the restaurant that we chose to dine in is a Brazilian restaurant, called Braza which serves unlimited rounds of Brazilian barbecue food which includes the beef, lamb, chicken, pork, prawns, chorizos,  roasted pineapple & etc which add up to 24 varieties of food!  Besides the mains, we also get free flow of side dishes & there are 12 side dishes to choose from. Click here to view the full menu. Glad to know that Mr. C enjoyed the meal very much!


 Barbecued pineapple was the highlight for the night.  It was juicy & salty & it taste great!

My favourite side dish is this one that looks like deep-fried tofu & I forgot to check what it was. My guess is the deep-fried polenta.

这烤鸡共做了两次,喜欢那简单的食谱却可以做出一到美味的烤鸡,谢谢Min的分享!我家公主很喜欢,如果连她都爱吃的话,这肯定是值一试的食谱!
Now, let’s talk about this roasted chicken which I've cooked twice so far.  It has become my regular cooking dish in this winter!  The recipe that I used this time is very simple & you only need a couple of ingredients to roast a yummylicious chicken! Or shall I say again, it was fingerlicking good? Thanks to Min(Min’s Blog) for her recipe!


蜜汁芝麻烤鸡
Honey Sesame Roasted Chicken
(Recipe Source: Min’s Blog with Minor Adjustment)
Serves 2

Ingredients:
500g or 2 Chicken Maryland
2tbsp Light Soy Sauce
2tbsp Worcestershire Sauce
2tbsp Honey
4 Cloves Garlic, crushed
2tbsp Water
Pepper to Taste
1tsp White Sesame Seeds, toasted

Method:
1. Make a few cuts on the chicken maryland or prick the maryland with a skewer. Pour all the seasonings on the chicken & marinate for at least 30 minutes.
2. Preheat oven to 190C & roast until the chicken are golden & cooked through.
3. Sprinkle with the toasted sesame seeds.

Tip:
1. If you want to replace the worcestershire sauce with cooking wine, please reduce the honey by about 1/2tbsp.

2. During the cooking time, remove the baking pan, spoon the hot sizzling marinade & pour onto the chicken & vegetable.  Change the position of the chicken in order to get an even golden colour.

Optional Ingredients:
2 Medium Orange Sweet Potatoes, cut in cubes
2 Brown Onions, sliced
Olive Oil
Salt & Pepper to taste
Dried/Fresh Mixed Herbs

Method:
1. Place the sweet potatoes & brown onions onto the baking pan in a single layer.  Drizzle with oil & add salt & pepper to taste.  Add the mixed herbs. 
2. Place the chicken marylands on top of the vegetable & pour in the marinade. Cook in the 190C preheated oven until the chicken marylands are golden or cooked through.


~~Enjoy~~

PS:I have noticed that this time the highligh problem didn't show up at all. The difference is that I do everything in order from top to bottom which is slightly longer than before, which is I inserted the 1st 2 photos first, followed by pasting my wordings from Microsoft Word, then insert the photo again......

  5. Your Brazil meals remind me of my Brazil trip about 10years ago when i was working in logistics department. My colleagues brought us to BBQ dinner and it was really yummy, and i especially like the BBQ pineapple and their papaya drink.. Hmm, the honey sesame roasted chicken look really yummy!

    1. Kit,doesn't have to be worcestershire sauce, you can reduce the honey little bit & use cooking wine to replace with the worcertershire sauce. It tastes sour & that's why I used 2tbsp of honey. If I used the cooking wine, I'll reduce the honey by 1/2tbsp!

  25. Mui Mui, no didn't manage to try all. I had chicken, prawn, pork shoulder, pork belly, pineapple & the guys also have beef & lamb. We also had some side dishes so were pretty full at the end of the day!

    As for the chicken, if you want to replace the worcestershire sauce with cooking wine, reduce the honey by 1/2tbsp.

    1. Jess, I am going to cook this today. Will let you know how is the result...hehe

  32. Hi Jessie, your roast chicken look awesome, so tender and moist. I love it yum yum.

    I have not roast a chicken in my oven cos worry of he oil, need lots of cleaning. I only bake beggar chicken or teriyaki chicken wings where I cover with aluminum foil, when almost cook I remove the foil and grill till slightly charred.

    Have a nice weekend.
