Creamy Salted Egg Yolk Chicken

Happy New Year in advance to all. Has been such a hectic year end for me, and only got down to power up my laptop today. Guess this shall be my last blog post for the year even though there are still a couple of recipes that I’ve wanted to share. I shall try to upload all the backlog soon and hopefully also find time to try out new recipes which I’ve been pretty much lagging behind.

Coming back to this creamy salted egg yolk chicken from the archives, I had a previous recipe which is the Salted Yolk Yolk Chicken which comes off as a dry version and you can find the recipe here. This creamy version is an inspiration from the menu of our local Zhi Char stalls where they go an extra step in dunking the dry version in a creamy and savoury salted egg yolk sauce.

And since the deep fried chicken will be cooked in a creamy sauce, so expect the crunchiness to pale in comparison to the dry version but what you have in replacement will be a rich and luscious cream sauce that are put together by the custard powder and salted egg yolks which is also literally the way the Zhi Char stalls adopt in cooking this dish as well.

Serving this dish on a bowl of rice topped with a sunny side egg is all you need for a complete indulgence of the dish. So here’s the recipe to share !
