Salted Egg Yolk Chicken

A very sinful chicken. 3 salted duck egg yolks and butter and deep fried chicken!!!! Prepare less sinful dishes to go with this to balance up your meal.

You may think, what is this woman cooking such unhealthy stuff to her family??? Well, I don’t cook this everyday!!!! So what??? I don’t believe in cutting off everything totally. I believe in moderation.
I may eat KFC today and salad tomorrow. It’s when you eat rich and oily foods everyday that’s going to put a burden on your body. But depriving the body totally of such GOOOOOD stuff is so evil.

But then again, I’m not referring to those who have health problems. So don’t bombard me with comments scolding me. What you put on your plate and in your mouth is your own choice. It’s me being evil to deprive myself.

You may also think 3 salted egg yolks???? Gosh!!!! The salted egg taste is just nice. I’ve seen on cooking shows that restaurants use 6 egg yolks for one plate of crab. SIX!!!!!!!!
So, 3 yolks is just nice here.

Salted Egg Yolk Chicken
Recipe Source: Wendyywy

350gm boneless whole chicken leg, cut into 1 inch thick large slices
1/3 tsp salt
1 egg white
1 cup tapioca starch
Oil for deep frying

Dry chicken properly. Mix chicken with salt and pepper. Then put in egg white. Marinate for half an hour, at least. Coat whole pieces of chicken with tapioca starch. Dust off extra starch.
Deep fry chicken pieces until golden and crispy.

2 Tbsp butter
2 sprigs curry leaves, remove from stem, leaves only
1 or 2 bird’s eye chilli, sliced
3 salted egg yolks, steamed and mashed
2 Tbsp evaporated milk
1 tsp oil
1/3 tsp salt
½ tsp sugar

In wok, on medium heat , put in oil and butter. When butter has melted, put in sliced chilli and curry leaves. When they are fragrant, put in mashed egg yolks, with spatula, try to flatten the yolks into the oil and cook until it look bubbly and fragrant (won’t take long). Turn heat to low and put in milk, salt and sugar. Turn heat to high and and cook until very bubbly. Put in chicken and toss until well coated.

So, what did I do with the balance of salted egg whites?? Check out my next post tomorrow :)

  5. wow, yummy, thanks for ur lunch^^ like ur recipe, thanks for sharing.

  6. really sinful! but these are really yummy with crab, chicken, prawn etc!

  7. and enjoy the food and don't feel guilty eating it. I believe in moderation too :) Don't deprive your baby haha congrats by the way. I love this dish and thanks for sharing it :)

  8. DG,
    Read my blog after meals then. haha.

    Janice Hcc,
    Full or not? LOL

    Jess Kitchen,
    Oh yes, good with anything. I think can even fry rice.

    Thanks and I never ever deprive myself or my kids of any food. Never!! I feed my kids sweets, but once a day only. Sweets are part of childhood. Taking sweets away from kids takes away a major part of childhood, I feel.

  9. wow...looks yummy!!! will definitely try this out one day^^ Thanks for sharing =)

  10. Moderation is the key...and we love to order this style of mantis prawn when at restaurants/zhu-char, or crab if their supply of crab is fresh. Shall KIV this for new year, hahah..

  11. hi, we're living in a country where we're surrounded by so much good food and it's hard not to be sinful and if it's really really good, what's wrong with eating that? Agree that we need to eat healthily, on the other hand it would be also ashamed if we totally stay away from 'sinful' foods.

  12. My family will always order dishes cook with salted eggs when they dine at restaurant. I like it with crab and sotong. I tried cooking it once with tofu and it turn out pretty well. This chicken sounds good too. I like your motto. Do not deprive yourself but eat everything in moderations. Life will be meaningless if you can't eat this or that, right.

  13. Hi Wendy

    I agree with ICook4Fun "Life will be meaningless if you can't eat this or that" whereby out there are lots of good food and good chefs around. How could we resist lol... Your fried chicken looks so.....good. Thanks for sharing.


  14. Wendy, this is so delicious! I tried this dish in some restaurants before, I just love the taste. I do agree with you, eat everything in moderation :)

  15. who cares if it's unhealthy or not, it's good enough for me and I'll dig my fork into this anytime :)

  16. yum!!! I've had a similar dish with shrimp and it was soo yummy. Do you think I can replace the chicken with shrimp? btw, I agree with you, it would be evil to deprive ourselves! =)

  17. I bow down to your greatness are you kidding me! This is divine, the only word for it!

  18. I’ll only have this type of dish when I dine out in restaurant or tai chao. Yours look good, and I bet you’ve already achieve the restaurant level.

  19. Wendy, my husband is going to thank you for this recipe cos he loves salted yolk chicken, I am going to cook this for him :).

  20. natalie,
    I'll wait for ur "oneday" :p

    Yeah, perfect for CNY hoh.

    True. I've seen bloggers kena "taruh" just becos the readers feel the blogger is cooking/baking unhealthy food, hahaha.

    True true.
    I saw ur tofu before, totally awesome.

    Unless I stay in Timbuktu la, then I'll be sinless. LOL. I can just indulge in almost every cuisine.LOL

  21. Min,
    LOL, I'll take that from a pharmacist :)

    I won't deny it's unhealthy, but once a while is fine.

    You can use shrimp (batter fry it shelled, or deep fry with lightly floured shell before coating with egg yolks), lightly floured fried crabs, battered calamari, or even fried tofu.
    whatever you use, just deep fry it to get a crispy and fragrant surface, before tossing into the egg yolks mixture.


    Little Inbox,
    Wah, that's a very generous comment.

    Jess Bakericious,
    Good, I hope he loves it.

    Dear Wendy,

    I just discovered your blog & is absolutely in love with it! Gosh.. the chicken had me drooling.. you are such an awesome cook! =)

  23. I mustn't show this post to my boys or they'll want to cook this too lol!

  24. Wendy
    My mum cooked this today and its delicious. Will out the balance of white egg tomorrow.


  25. This recipe is fantastically good!

  26. This recipe is fantastically good!

  27. Tks for the recipe. It works and its finger licking good!!

  28. Hi Wendy, can i use corn oil instead of butter? don like the buttery taste...


  29. cl,
    Corn oil in my personal opinion is not recommended at all. Hydrogenated fats should never be used for cooking on high heat.
    Just use a heat stable oil and don't use margarine too, heavily hydrogenated, worse than corn oil.

  30. thank you for the recipe.. I cook for my man today.. he like it very much..

  31. Hi, my chicken taste dry. Is it because I'm using frozen chicken?

  32. Little Prince,
    I used frozen chicken too. But did you use chicken breast or meat from the legs?
    It also depends on how long you fried the chicken.

  33. Hi Wendy, I tried this recipe today. The chicken wings are awsome and finger licking good. My fmily members all like it. Hahaha..
    Thank you for sharing.
