Thai Iced Tea and Braised Chicken

One of my new favorite blogs, Tes at Home had two great recipes today that I wanted to share:

I am confident to say that Thai people like cold coffee than hot coffee. I love ice coffee more than a hot one myself. I think the reason why ice- coffee is so popular in Thailand is because of the weather is so hot, so we need something cool and refreshing.

These summer days you might find yourself in desperate need of icy cold caffeine fix. Thai ice-coffee could be your answer My Thai coffee:

There is an interesting fact about the coffee mix I used. It’s has a unique aromatic flavour. It’s absolutely different from your regular coffee. This is an old day Thai coffee interestingly contain:

  • 25% Roasted Coffee beans
  • 25% Corn kernels
  • 10% Soy beans
  • 39 % Sugar
  • 1% salt

My mom shipped these packages to us every now and then because we are so obsess with this delicious cold drink.

Another Type of Thai coffee:

Not many people have access to this exotic mixture. There are other types of Thai coffee that I find suitable for making this delicious drink. There is a ground roasted coffee beans infused in cardamom and star anise or coffee blend with chicory and licorice.

Tes was busy and also posted a wonderful recipe for Soy Braised Chicken.

It is difficult to find duck here, so whenever we had appetite for Peking duck it has become big problem. We made soy sauce braised chicken to substitute the Peking duck craving. It worked like magic. This recipe ensures that there won’t be even a drop of broth left in your pot.

The chicken is so tender that it almost falls off anytime. The meat is balance with sweetness of sugar and Chinese 5 spices and saltiness from light soy sauce and dark soy sauce. The sauce is thick and rich; it’s so good with rice and noodle.

The best part is it is super simple and easy to make. It is great for party and the kids adore this tender sweet chicken.

I think this sounds irresistible.  For Tes’ recipe, it is right here.
