Yeaaaa.....this is the result when you don't know what you want to cook. This is my other experiment. For some reason, I was lacked of idea what I want to do with my chicken. I tried to browse some recipes but nothing catch my eyes. Hmmmm.....then, when I played restaurant city in FB (so this is the reason why sometimes I dissapeared and didn't update my blog), I was thinking ...... mmmm chicken and tamarind might be tasty, and I remember those thai foods that using tamarind as their "main" ingredient.

Then, I looked into my kitchen drawer to check all the ingredients needed to make my "experiment" dinner. Yup......I have all the ingredients.....First, marinate the chicken for a while, fried peanuts, then prepared other ingredients........wallaaaaaaa.....here it is chicken with tamarind sauce....The taste turns sooooooo good!! Little bit sour and sweetness plus the crunchy-ness from the chopped peanuts.........really yummy!! My hubby liked it so much and he was surprised when I told him that this is only my experiment....(haaa...you should thank my mom hun cos she taught me well how to cook).
