This is the dish I always cook over the weekends, but mine is a simpler version, without chicken and shrimps.

Thanks Gina, for adjusting the pic's size. when I posted it, I thought to myself...OMG, I think it's too big, hopefully Gina will fix it, and Walaa.. you did too. Greatly appreciated.
Gonna try cooking one of the braised pork dish for dinner tonite, and will report back with the result.


cheerio,

For the Mee Tai Mak itself, do you all wash & rinse off with tap water?

For the chicken fillet, do u add the chicken fillet to boiling water and when it changes colour to light brown means it is cooked? If I don't have a shredder, can I use knife to cut the chicken fillet into smaller pcs?

Thanks

I don't rinse the noodles in water.

raw chicken is brown in colour. After its cooked, it turns white.
just use fingers to pull the meat apart. its very tender and soft, no need to use knife to chop.

Was back at my parents on Hari Raya and she just told me she cooked this for dinner and it was a hit. But when I asked her for recipe, she just told me very briefly how to cook it (that's why I always admire them for their no recipe cooking!). So happy to find a similar recipe here! Smile love
