Hello everyone, I am back again! I am so sorry for missing in action for almost two months. There are two reasons - our cameras are sent for service and it took almost a month and also due to me unreasonable working schedule. Well, this always happens to a full-time working married woman...
After a long break, I wish to share with you this recipe that was on my trial list for
sometime, that is bruschetta. I used to make varieties of vegetables and fruit topping whenever there are any home gathering, parties or potluck. But this round I am eager to try out something savory and I am satisfied with the turn out.
Chicken Mushroom is my choice for this round
bruschetta topping. I had added a little touch of Asian feel in my recipe. To make the colors stand out I have added in a little of dark soy sauce in my way of caramelizing the chicken meat with mushrooms. No regrets at all! It goes so well with the crispy toasted, buttered slice French baguette. To make the bites feeling not too meaty, I intentionally combined the cooked chicken mushroom topping with some thinly chopped lettuce, so you can feel both kinds of crunchy from the greens and also the toasted sliced baguette.
Holiday seasons round the corner, try this out for your guests at home!
