Kaffir Lime Leaves Flavored Chicken Bits

Another dish that Josh likes is this Kaffir Lime Leaves Flavored Chicken Bits. Very exotic in taste, a blend of spiciness with the strong aroma of preserved black beans and enhanced by local fresh herb , the lovely fragrance of kaffir lime leaves . Appetizing to the dot. Chicken breast, cut into bite size making it easier for the aromatic flavor to be infused into the meat. If you like something savoury, this is a flavor packed chicken dish :) Simple and yet easy to prepare dish. Good for people like me who just want to sit in front of the idiot box and watch the soapy korean drama :p  These korean dramas are so addictive....just like their kimchi !

I will be looking for simple and yet flavorful dishes from now on lol! thanks to the korean dramas...nope I was just kidding.....Daddy will not be happy reading this, he said I spend too much time chasing after  dramas that will make me weepy , or I will be spending too much time baking away and leaving him alone....* why men can't just be addicted to korean dramas  !!!! *  :p

you can use any part of the chicken to cook this dish...it is just that
my Josh loves chicken breast...he won't eat any other parts...so picky
and I hate the breast part ...I mean chicken breast :p

yummilicious flavor packed chicken bits

  5. Thanks for sharing this recipe Elin. I've been looking for dishes that use Kaffir Lime Leaves as my 2plants were growing like weed which I have no clue what to use it for beside rendang.

  6. You're hilarious. Keep watching! I love keffir lime leaves.

  7. Oh yes, another flavourful chivken dish! Guess, Jo going to miss this! haha.... Have a pleasant evening.

  8. Some of my favorite flavors are in this dish! I really like to use Kaffir lime leaves in Asian dishes. There really is no substitute that tastes the same.

  9. Sounds like a great recipe! I have a dwarf kaffir lime tree, so I look forward to trying your dish with leaves from my garden!

  10. Wow this looks delicious. I don't know where to get some of the ingredients though! Can they be found at any asian market?

  11. This dish looks appetising. Must try it. I never watch Korean drama because to me, the actors and actresses look so alike, can't differentiate who is who, ha! ha!

  12. Hi Elin, I must cook this for sure. Already printed out the recipe, thanks!

  13. Love this dish! The kaffir leaves probably pack a real flavor punch to it.. making this for my husband too!

  14. Elin, this looks super delicious with sweet chilli sauce!

    Gotta get something else instead of kaffir lime leaves for the recipe...it looks so inviting.

  15. Yeah kaffir leaves are aromatic and smell wonderful! I like them too. The chicken dish looks amazing Elin and it sounds like a fun night to watch K-drama! I agree it's so additive! :)

  16. this dish looks tasty, I love any dishes wif chicken :).

  17. I have everything to make this in my pantry (except the chicken!)...sounds great! Theresa

  18. I think this dish is enough drama for me - I mean, I could eat it all, sounds and looks so good

  19. Hi & cheers to all of you ..sorry for the late response to your comments :p you are all welcome to the recipe and hope you will love it just as my Piggy Josh does ..LOL!

    Robert dear...thanks for dropping by :)

    Gert...you can used tom yam paste to fried rice..then cut some kaffir limes leaves into shreds , add to your fried tom yam rice. One way to use your kaffir lime leaves :)

    Kristy...Jo will definitely miss this :) you too have a great day..sorry for the late reply.

    Roxan...I think asian grocers should have this in their shops :)

    Cheah...I am addicted and I love their storyline. I too can't remember their names !

    Anncoo...great, hope you love it :)

    Angie...are there any asian grocery at your place ? But without the kaffir leaves, it will taste slightly different. The Kaffir lime leaves makes it more aromatic and exotic.

  20. Those chicken bits look seriously tempting! I am intrigued by kaffir lime leaves, I would like to find them sometime soon!

  21. Hi 5 star foodie...I hope you can get them from the asian grocery stall :)

  22. One of the few downsides of living in Vermont is no kaffir leaves, and is one of the other comments said there is no substitute. Boo-hoo!
