It's been over 100 degrees for the fast few days here in SoCal,
The heat might cause some severe symptoms such as:
Crazy mood swing,
Couch potato syndrome,
Overflowing sweat problems,
And what's even worse for food lovers!?
*This one doesn't apply to me though, 100 degrees weather is nothing for my monstrous appetite!
So what should I cook for those poor things who lost their interests in food?
Am I crazy?! Spicy food under a hot weather?!
It surely helps to bring back your appetite!
In order to make spicy food,
I need some help from these tiny red devils-
From there, we'll transform them into spicy chicken with soy bean paste-
1 lb of chicken thigh (cubed, remember to remove the excess fat)
1 palm full of dried chili peppers (or more if you can handle the heat!)
Spicy soy bean paste 辣豆瓣醬
8 garlic cloves (peeled)
Extra virgin olive oil
Drizzle some olive oil in the skillet,
Toss in the garlic cloves and wait till the edges turned slightly brown,
Add the dried chilies in together with about 2 teaspoons of salt.
After 1 minutes or till the dried chilies turned slightly soft,
Toss in the chicken and let it seared for about 1 minute,
Add about 2 tablespoons of spicy soy bean paste and 2 teaspoons of soy sauce,
Keep cooking till the sauce is all absorbed by the chicken cubes.
That's it, fast and easy!
