Herb-Roasted Chicken and Vegetables

Assalamualaikum wbt..


Recently it's been haze around here in Malaysia, Indonesia and Singapore. I'm not sure whether Brunei was affected but all I know is that we really REALLY need to stay indoor and eat healthy food! 

I was thinking to roast those chickens in my freezer and always wanted to add vegetables as a protein option to accompany them.  The herb roasted chicken and vegetables was inspired by Martha Stewart's recipe found in her website. Literally, I don't follow exactly the ingredients as Martha's recipe, I actually invent a new one as I want to use the existing herbs that I have in my kitchen and as far as the vegetables go, I just use whatever I have or whatever looks good at the market. Hubby declared this the best roasted chicken I have ever made and I agree! So dust off that oven and get healthy food started!


Ingredients:

1 whole chicken, rinsed and patted dry ( I used half chicken, cut into 8 pieces)
Coarse salt 
4 large potatoes cut into halved
3 cloves of garlic
Half small bowl of lemon juice
2 clutch of tomatoes cut into halved
A bundle of asparagus (I loves Asparagus!)
A pinch of Italian Herbs blend
A pinch of Rosemary Herbs
2 teaspoon of extra-virgin olive oil








What to do:

In a large bowl, whisk together the potatoes, tomatoes, garlic, onion and asparagus with olive oil and season with salt. Then, preheat oven to  250 degrees. Season chicken with salt, rosemary, italian herbs and lemon juice. Scattered vegetables around the chicken. Pour another teaspoon of virgin olive oil into pan and roast chicken and vegetables about 1 and 1/2 hour. 






My herb-roasted chicken and vegetable is ready..Tadaa!

Overall Rating: 8.5 /10. Hubby was certainly impressed. There a few other recipes I'm eyeing to re-create from Martha's site since I already have an OVEN now. yeay! This dish was an interesting twist to the usual Malay-Italian fare. There was still strong Malay taste when it came to the dish. So there you have it, my perfect lazy way of cooking a one dish for Saturday dinner:)

Saving the best for the last-Me!

Assalamualaikum w.b.t..
B's nature of work leaves me with no choice but to be independent. His work schedule knows no weekends and public holiday. But a kaki jalan I am by nature and nurture,what if it's only me and Aulia'? bring it on! Nak keluar jugak! I thought  it was impossible at first but naaa, practice makes perfect, I am so used to it already, you'll be surprised of what I can do with only one hand. Haha The skills develop naturally. From folding stroller and do groceries shopping while pushing the cart and her stroller? I have done all that. But there are time I do need hands from strangers, and kudos to Malaysians, they're helpful. And I think this is the perfect bonding time because Aulia' is with her baby sitter during the weekdays.


So there are times, I'd love to doll up, but now I have a plus one! How? I doll her up as well! luckily she's a daughter, dear God thanks for being so understanding! I am grateful! Tutu you say?! Of course! and…

DIY Dulang Hantaran Fresh Flowers

Assalamualaikum wbt..

Last week was my BIL E-day. So I was assigned by my MIL to do the 'Dulang Hantaran' and it decorations including all the goodies inside the dulang.. since this is only the engagement event, not so much personal items to be included in the dulang except for the rings.. both for merisik and engagement..
Since last time during my Nikah day, I did the DIY dulang hantaran using the artificial flowers and this time around I was thinking to do it with the fresh flowers. I purposely wanted it that way just because I can save a lot of time (since I am way too busy with my PhD study and I have to travel to and fro KL-JB) and at the same time we can avoid the hustle of keeping the dulang covered with dust in the store room. Lol..talking about experience huh!
And most importantly.. we can save a lot of money.. Lemme show you the trick..

Sending off dulang for fresh flower decorations can cost you up to RM75 to RM150 per tray excluding the items inside the dulang. Mi…

Preggy Diaries: 2nd Trimester

I am overwhelmed with the people who congratulated us ❤❤

Okay just a short story about our 5 months ultrasound check up. My first "legit" ultrasound was carried out by our gynae in KPJ Ipoh, Dr. Zamzida and nothing seeing our baby's heartbeat the first time felt surreal. It's something like I have been very blessed to have this munch. Dr. Zamzida was very happy we finally succeed to naturally conceived and she pray the best for our journey and the baby. Unfortunately we won't be able to do our monthly check up with her because it would be too far for us to go all the way to and fro Ipoh every month. My husband already decided on where to deliver the baby and whom will be my gynae throughout our 10 months journey. He seems very committed for baby no. 2 😊

We started our monthly maternity check up at 12 weeks with Dr. Zunita at Tunku Azizah Maternity Home, and this is our ultrasound results for 20 weeks check up. Alhamdulillah, the baby heart beat is perfectly nor…
