I was trying to look for a baked chicken recipe and I am so glad I came across this page:
Baked Honey Sesame Chicken

It is so easy to prepare and it is definitely worth a try!
I made the recipe 3 times already! I guarantee that it is super delicious.

I’ll put the recipe here but please visit her page.

Ingredients:
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
8 bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs
1/2 teaspoon sesame seeds
2 green onions, thinly sliced

Sauce
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup soy sauce
2 tablespoons ketchup
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon brown sugar, packed
1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
1 tablespoon freshly grated ginger
1 teaspoon Sriracha
1 teaspoon sesame oil
1 teaspoon cornstarch
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

Procedure:
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
To make the sauce, whisk together honey, soy sauce, ketchup, garlic, brown sugar, rice wine vinegar, ginger, Sriracha, sesame oil, cornstarch and pepper in a small bowl; set aside.
Melt butter in a large oven-proof skillet over medium high heat. Add chicken, skin-side down, and sear both sides until golden brown, about 2-3 minutes per side. Stir in honey mixture.
Place into oven and roast until completely cooked through, reaching an internal temperature of 175 degrees F, about 25-30 minutes. Then broil for 2-3 minutes, or until caramelized and slightly charred.
Serve immediately, garnished with sesame seeds and green onions, if desired.

Looks yummy, Tastes yummy!
It is sweet but it you can taste the mixture of spices.. (I didn’t put sriracha coz I don’t eat spicy stuff).
It’s like barbeque with a bit of crispy skin everyone will love!

By the way, today I tried marinading it overnight and cooking it in the stove instead of the oven. Delicious as expected!

Oreo Cheesecake Cookies

IMG_0990Hello!
I came across a cookie recipe in Facebook and I tried it immediately because I like Oreo Cheesecake!

Ingredients:
1 bar (8oz) of cream cheese, equivalent to 8 ounces
1 cup butter at room temperature
2 cups white sugar
2 tsps vanilla
2 cups all purpose flour
1 cup mini chocolate chips
1 1/2 – 2 cups crushed Oreo cookies, approximately 10-15 pieces

IMG_0987Procedure:
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Crush the Oreo cookies.
Cream the butter and cream cheese together.
Add the sugar and approximately 1-2 teaspoons of vanilla extract. Gradually add the flour into the mixture then the the chocolate chips. Mix everything together.
Using the measuring spoon (1 tablespoon) or a small ice cream scoop, scoop the cookie dough and form a ball. Roll the cookie dough ball on the crushed Oreo.
Arrange the balls on your greased cookie pan/sheet, about half to one inch apart.
Bake for 12-14 minutes. After baking, do not leave the cookies on the hot cookie sheet for too long, you may transfer your cookies on a cooling rack.
