Roast Chicken Fermented Red Bean Curd/ Nam Yee Kai

Nam Yee or Fermented Red Bean Curd is mostly used in Chinese cooking.I didn't realised I bought few bottles of nam yee in my pantry.Well maybe the price is only $1.00 each,so whenever I visit Asian market I just grab a bottle with my others purchases.Usually I used nam yee to make crackling pork but this time I marinated with chicken thigh.Hubby found the flavor weird and funny ,maybe I added more nam yee that I intended or maybe I marinated it too they said you love it or hate it! If you like nam yee flavor this method is really great and healthy!

6 pieces chicken thigh,washed and cleaned
3-4 pieces of nam yee/Fermented red bean curd,mashed
2 tbsp sugar
2 tbsp salt
1 tbsp ground white pepper

1:Prepare a large container with chicken thigh,mashed nam yee,sugar,salt and ground white pepper,mix well,close tight and store in fridge.Marinated for 6 hours or overnight.
2:Prepare a aluminum foil over a baking sheet or tray.Preheat oven to 375 F at Bake setting.Place marinated chicken over the baking tray.Bake for 35 minutes or depend on your oven temperature.
3:Remove from oven and serve warm .

Try enhancing the taste by adding 2 tablespoons of shallot juice and a tablespoon of oyster sauce to the marinade.

Your Nam Yee kai sure looks tempting. My version of Nam Yee kai is also very simple, and fast esp for working mums. Will post it later in my blog which is in infancy stage.

I like eating nam yue with plain white rice too. I pan fry the nam yue marinated chicken, not healthy but that's how the hubs like it! Just glad that he eats nam yue! :)
