Very simple evening meal tonight, marinated chicken wings in garlic and ginger paste, soya sauce and corn starch. Small waxy potatoes chips with skins on and a beautiful veg and herb salad with olive and lemon juice.. simple and perfect 😊

A little Japanese mayonnaise was lovely with the chicken and the chips 😊

It was delicious Hiba, thank you, I enjoyed it very much πŸ‘πŸ˜‹

Your evening meal would entice others to mangia mangia mangia.

I used the same ingredients and a few others except the ginger paste to make sweet and sour chicken in the past.

Now you me thinking sweet and sour pork, chicken, prawns..I used to make that a lot before, pineapple, red and green bell peppers. It was my first experience of Chinese food when I was 15 and working for a burglar alarm company as an apprentice, we traveled around England and stay in guests houses. The boss always treated me to a Chinese meal. I will have to make it soon.😁

If you post a sweet n sour chicken/ prawn, I'll virtually wolf it down and whistle real hard.

Crime fighting whilst eating delicious Chinese food at 15 must have been an interesting time in your life.

Yes it t was a very interesting time of my life, it was my first taste of travelling, a year or so after that I joined the Greek merchant navy and got paid for seeing the world, that was very very interesting 😁

There was a couple more pieces of chicken and some salad left, I couldn't let it go to waste, and my youngest daughter took most of my chips, so I had to make for the lost nutrition 😁

That was nice of you to give your chips to your daughter 😊. Children love chips and could have chips every day.You deserved the spare pieces of chicken to make up for your loss of your yummy chips πŸ—

If I were to be honest, I didn't give willingly 😁

What ingredients did you use in the Japanese mayonnaise Happyman, did you use cider vinegar?πŸ™‚

It was shop bought, I really got a taste for it when we was stranded in Cambodia for ten months and I couldn't find the real one. I only just bought this one a few days ago, it is very niceπŸ™‚

What's the difference in taste of the Japanese mayo compared to the normal mayo?

Happyman4 profile image
Happyman4 in reply to Zara0123

It's a bit more sharp, but it also comes in a more sweet version that I don't like and I haven't seen it in Thailand anyway. They do a very nice salad cream as well.πŸ™‚

There's a lot of different varieties of Mayonnaise you can get here in the UK. I've had the chilli mayo but I prefer the original the most.

Happyman4 in reply to Zara0123

In the past I would only buy Hellmens mayonnaise, but l guess I was missing Cambodia a bit and bought it for the sentimental value, and because it's not to bad..😁

Your meal looks delicious happyman πŸ˜‹You must have really enjoyed it. Love chicken, So do my family πŸ₯°

Can't go wrong with chips as chips go with everything. As a kid we had fish and chips on a Friday. Didn't imagine we'd ever eat chips with indian meals. Nowadays when we order food or go out for a meal we can't start the meal without ordering chips/ fries.

Chips go very nicely with Indian food, me and the boys just spent 3 months in India, Goa, chips seem to be more popular than ever..we stuck to the delicious flat breads mostly..we was going to go back for another 3 months but covid came and we had to stay in Cambodia for the next 10 months.. we go to enjoy it there and left just when covid started to get very bad there.I forgot was we talking about chips..😁

Wow you've lived in many places. You are lucky. I would love to experience the life of living in different countries. Is it work that took you to India or just a holiday πŸ₯°

Happyman4 in reply to Zara0123

Neither of them, I live in Thailand but something went wrong with my visa, we went travelling to different countries until it got sorted out..having a wonderful time until ofcourse covid put a stop on travelling. Not to worry we home now and very happy for it..😊

Zara0123 in reply to Happyman4

That's good. At least you got to travel and stay in India and enjoyed the food till your Visa was sorted. Yes home is where the comfort is. No place like home 🏠 😊

The two go well πŸ˜‹

This looks very tasty Happyman and I love garlic and lots of it. 😊

There was lots of garlic, you can't go wrong with garlic in a marinade. I love lots of crashed garlic in yogurt with cucumber and mint, I made a big bowl of it early morning and eat it through out the day with olive bread, I was very busy today so it was very handy, refreshing and delicious 😊
