Spice-Roasted Chicken

This is one of my favorite roast chickens. They are just packed with all the fantastic flavors from the spices used in the recipe. I served the chicken with some Spicy and Sweet Soy Sauce. Optional of course, I like it as it adds some spiciness to the chicken when eaten with steamed rice. Simply delicious!

Not only are these bars good for you, they also taste great! So, if you are into raw energy bars, then you may want to try this recipe. If possible, please send me your feedback as well.

I'm actually laughing at myself! What have I got into? Trying to make dumplings?? Well, I have seen my late grandmother make them a long time ago. I can remember the ingredients but not the measurements! So, it took me about two hours to come up with the perfect recipes, and I'm glad I did! It was an instant hit! They were all gone, all gobbled up! Make the dough first, add about 480 to 500g of all-purpose flour with 300ml of water. Knead the dough and let it rest. You should be able to make 40 dumplings with the dough. Meanwhile, prepare the filling for the dumplings. Click here for the dumpling wrappers video.
