Baked spring chicken

Baked Spring Chicken and Egg Bok Choy was what my children cooked for dinner when I was down with a bad stomach upset a few days ago. I’m really glad that they cooked quite a big plate of vegetables. It looks simple, delicious and healthy. I think their photography is not bad too.

They had Teriyaki Salmon Jacket Potato for lunch, but without vegetables. I think they knew they would be questioned so they cooked a big plate of vegetables for dinner to show me….haha.

I thought it quite amusing to see that they fried the bok choy with eggs. I often cooked vegetables with eggs but have not tried that with bok choy. It looks delicious though. The chicken was ready marinated so it was quite easy for them. They only need to bake that. It’s a big relief to know that they know how to cook healthy meals.

All these years I have been talking to them a lot about eating healthy and the importance of home cooked meals. Sometimes they would argue with me or challenge my point. Finally, I see the fruit of my labour. I hope to get them to learn and cook more before they leave the nest.

Here are a few pictures of the dinner.

My children have seen me fry vegetables very often. There’s always ready fried garlic oil in a little small bowl for any quick stir fries. The simplest seasoning is salt. This is the simplest recipe to use for vegetables.

Add in one or two eggs and give a quick stir and it’s done. Eggs give the vegetables a beautiful creamy texture and taste.

I’m surprised at the well-cut chicken, so nicely cut into half! This piece must have been shared by both of them. I’m sure it was a very satisfying meal. Looks like my children are more into Western meal but mixed with Chinese cooking…haha.

Cool Mary! You can sit back and give yourself a pat on the back for that. In fact even if you take a holiday I think the kids can continue blogging for you!

Gosh! Good on your kids for cooking for mum. I cook for mum and dad when I return for visits too. I love cooking for them. Makes everyone happy.

Ellie  on January 8th, 2010

Lovely baked chicken! So good to have your kids to cook for you.

Divina  on January 8th, 2010

That looks great. I’m also roasting some chicken next week. I guess you have some assistants on your blog. It’s really nice someone cooks for you and I hope someday, someone I know will cook for me too apart from my family. Any cuisine would do for me but right now some soba noodles would be great.

Mary  on January 8th, 2010

@Shirley - Great idea….blogging for me!!! I would love that. I think I must ask my daughter to be a guest blogger while I go for hoilday :P

@Penny aka jeroxie - I think they gave me quite a surprise to cook 2 meals…simple but looked delicious and healthy. Lovely to know that you cook for your parents when you return for visits. I can imagine everyone so happy.

@Ellie - At least makes my suffering worth it :D I was very well pampered!

@Divina - It does look great but sadly I didn’t had any appetite at all to eat it. Still wondering when is my appetite going to return. I have to get my children to cook more. Maybe I should work out a menu for them. I hope to learn more Western food but mixed with Chinese cooking, not too much meat though.

This is very different, I haven’t had bok choi for a while. I meant to comment on your salmon teriyaki post yesterday but seem to have closed window without doing so. Teryaki on jacket potato sounds like a good lunch!

Trissa  on January 8th, 2010

You taught your children well! That chicken does look amazing!

Angie@Angie's Recipes  on January 8th, 2010

The chicken looks so delicious! Mary, you shall be very proud of yourself.

Mary  on January 8th, 2010

@Sarah, Maison Cupcake - Thank you. I can’t wait to try the teriyaki salmon on jacket potato. Wait til my appetite fully returns. My children have to cook that for me :P

@Trissa - I’m glad they picked up here and there. Maybe now they will learn more, knowing mom will not be able to cook for them all the time :D

@Angie@Angie’s Recipes - Yes, I’m proud. It helps me to forget how I suffered :D Hope to try my children’s cooking soon.

Hi Mary,
Glad that you’re getting better. Your children are lovely. They cooked for you and took some pics for blogging, so thoughtful!

I used to fry spinach with eggs too. :P
Did you try them? Sometimes I add salted eggs w/pork to cook bok Choy soup.

cheah  on January 8th, 2010

Hey, you should be very proud of your girls, they too can cook well, after the mother, of course!

Viviane  on January 8th, 2010

Sounds like a delicious meal. The girls are on the right track :D
I think I cook a mix: Western and Lebanese. I really want to try something Asian but it is very hard to find ingredients here.

Mary  on January 8th, 2010

@Christine@Christine’s Recipes - I’m sure glad feeling better, more energy today except for my poor appetite. Have to give myself more time. I’ve to be thankful to my children for taking the photos for my blog :) Actually they have to do that to prove to me what they ate cos I was resting and couldn’t check on them :P Spinach with eggs? I have to try them. Have to be delicious. Can’t get salted eggs here. Have to make them myself. Hope to make again soon.

@Cheah - I’m really glad they have picked up along the way. Not bad huh. A big relief :)

@Viviane - Agree with you…looks delicious. I will be their tasters when I get my full appetite back :P Love your Lebanese food. Heard lots about the beauty of Lebanese food. Hope to learn soon. Hope you can find a good Asian shop. I’m glad I can find most of the Asian ingredients though not all but I try to make do with what I have. Sometimes it’s difficult but so far so good.

How lucky you are to have such wonderful children — they did such a great job! This must be because they had a great teacher of course :) I pretty much like to eat everything but have found myself missing chinese food recently. Hope you are feeling stronger today, sending good thoughts your way!

You’ve done your job well Mary… you’ve trained them well. I love it when children cook and take over the kitchen once in awhile!

Your children are gems! You brought them up well! :)

That chicken looks very deliciously spicy with the chilli on top. Glad you are fine now Mary.

I’ve always just steamed or braised bok choy. This is a wonderful idea on another preparation. Thanks for sharing and I will definitely keep this one in mind!

Mary  on January 11th, 2010

@Dhale - Steamed or braised is also nice….very healthy. Bok choy is just so delicious. We eat it very often.
