Salted Egg Yolk Chicken

With salted eggs on hand, it is time to make Salted Egg Yolk Chicken.  I first taste Salted Egg Yolk with Pork but since I don't have pork on hand, I shall shall chicken.

This is definitely a high calorie dish so doubt we can eat this too often. hehehe.



Findings: This time round, I omitted the chillies because I am afraid of the heat as my girl don't like spicy food but for my next attempt, I will definitely add in some chillies to enhance the taste.
