I like fast cooking. Any meal in 30 minutes and under is a fast meal. Sometimes I wonder if I spend more time thinking than cooking. I always look for tweaks, cheats and short cuts in my cooking but still not losing the tastes or the authenticity of a dish. In fact I try to put all my fast cooking recipes on this blog so that even if you are busy you can still cook a nice meal or make a nice appetizer or dessert.
One of the fast and fantastic meals that I often cook is Baked Poussin (Spring Chicken) With Fried Noodles. It’s great with fried rice too.
I bought a ready marinated poussin (spring chicken) and just put it into the oven, already heat to 200 degrees Celsius, to bake for 30 minutes while I fried the noodles and vegetables. Everything is ready by the time the poussin is cooked.
I really like poussin because of the texture of the meat, its extra flavour and its small size. One poussin is enough for 2 but I can only manage a quarter of it. The one that I bought came with very simple marinade which tastes real good. You can marinade your own way using salt, pepper and some chili sauce.
To make quick fried noodles, I got a packet of ready washed leafy vegetables and a packet of fresh Chinese noodles. Make sure you get a good quality one which should taste slightly chewy and not very soft or soggy after cooking. I shared in my previous post how to fry the noodles.
Lastly stir fry another dish of vegetables to go with it. That is because we eat a lot of vegetables. But otherwise just the poussin and the noodles is already great on its own.
Oh….this is really such a satisfying meal. I do hope you keep learning, keep cooking and keep smiling. You can only get better as you keep cooking and keep enjoying it. Cooking at home is cleaner, healthier and cheaper. It’s one of the most effective way to save money.
