Chicken in Red Wine

It has rained almost everyday since the past few weeks. I’m just loving this weather! It’s pleasant and the best part is working on my laptop with a cup of coffee while it’s pouring outside 🙂

After a hectic week, yesterday we went to the Singapore Night Festival. It’s a festival organized by the National Museum of Singapore every year around this time of the year. There are more than 130 activities spread across 10 venues including light and sound shows and live performances. So yesterday we managed to make it on time and watch a few amazing performances…. the phoenix show, light and sound show, live performances etc. It was such a fun night! Here are some shots I took last night 🙂


The recipe I’m posting today is something different I tried…yes with red wine. I’ve never cooked any dish before with wine although wine is a common ingredient used. For this dish, I added the vegetables I had in stock to make it a whole some meal. I loved cooking this dish, especially the part where I poured the wine since I always found it visually enticing watching chefs pour wine when they prepared similar dishes! 🙂

No more talking, here you go with the recipe…enjoy 🙂
