I purposely bought a bottle of Marmite to cook this dish...Chicken Marmite is a very common dish when you take meal at Chinese restaurant. In order to use up this bottle, i am planning to cook this marmite with pork, prawn and crab which are very common serve in Chinese restaurant too.



Chicken Marmite 妈蜜鸡



Four basic sauces for this recipe..Honey, prawn paste, Marmite (yeast extract) and maltose

If you have never eaten chicken marmite before, I don't think you can imagine the taste after combined all these sauces ^_^

I saw this recipe frm Min's blog too and bought a maltose but havent get a chance to cook. Do you know what is the taste different between bovril & marmite?

yvonne said...

I love this! Used to have this during my stays in KL but it's not popular in my hometown here.

Will try it out soon as my hubb loves this dish too!

Three-Cookies said...

This sounds really delicious, I never heard of this dish. BTW did you hear about the marmite shortage in NZ, its hard to buy and the price has really gone up. You are lucky to have a bottle:)

Little Inbox said...

Ah...so maltose and shrimp paste are the 2 secret ingredients?
I've been thinking to buy a bottle of Marmite too, but a bit worry not able to finish up the whole bottle.

Sean L said...

Ahh, so Cheong Kim Chuan Har Ko is a secret ingredient.

ping said...

I'm not a fan of marmite but just looking at this, I'm about to be convinced! Great looking dish!

Min said...

Sonia, you did this so well! I love the addition of prawn paste to this dish, it makes it a bit like rojak taste, hehe. I still have marmite left, it's time to cook this dish again!

Jane Chew said...

Aiyo! Looks so tempting. I don't have marmite lei. Can I add bovril instead of marmite? If can then tomorrow I can cook this. Really don know what to cook for dinner. Thanks for this idea.

Jeannie Tay said...

Sounds delicious! Would love to try this, always eat this dish outside must learn to cook at home:)

Julie said...

ICook4Fun said...

My favorite Marmite. I will bring back a few bottle when I go back home. I like it with hot water or in porridge. I have yet to cook it with chicken. I have to try out your recipe soon.

Jessie-CookingMoments said...

True true Sonia. When we went back to M'sia, every time when our friends belanjar no matter in KL or Perak, they also ordered this dish! This dish hasn't come to Sydney yet, let me try making them & introduce to the "tau ke" here, haha!

ogyep yummy mellow said...

Very tempting... Surely cant resist one...

Pete said...

Really long time didn't cook this liao.......

Yee Er said...

The chicken looks so inviting....I never know it can be used in such a way. I used to Bovril, instead of marmite, always hv it with my porridge or 干捞noodle.

mui mui said...

Sonia,this marmite chicken of yours is so tempting.
I love the taste of marmite adding shrimp paste..so nice.
I will try out your marmite chicken recipe.
Just to share with you that Marmite is yeast extracted, it is vegetable base whereas Brovil is beef base product..:)

WendyinKK @ Table for 2..... or more said...

I tot there was only Marmite in that dish. and so, now I know, there's more than just Marmite in it.
Thanks!

Priya dharshini said...

アンゼエリン said...

Nami | Just One Cookbook said...

Biggest drool.... seriously, this looks so delicious! I heard about Marmite after I started to blog but I have no idea how that taste is like. Well, everything you make is delicious so this must be heavenly just like we can see from the photos!

Zoe said...

We just had this dish in a Malaysian restaurant last week and it is very delicious to eat. Seeing your post, I think that I should use your recipe to cook this dish at home.

anne said...

Looks really really delicious ! I love the different flavor though haven't tried the Marmite but with the shrimp paste it's a sure winner ! ;D

noobcook said...

I'm a big fan of marmite, this looks incredible!

Elin said...

I can imagine how good this would taste like...I am sure it is better than those from the restaurant :) I have eaten once and it was a bit burnt...yours looks mouth-watering. Have bookmarked this :)

Mel said...

I like to eat Marmite and I bet this must be a delicious dish. I will bookmark to cook this one day. Thanks for the picture showing the 4 main ingredients or else I wouldn't know what is that shrimp paste.

Yee's Corner said...

Very restaurant standard! I must try this recipe next weekend (I only cook over the weekend..:) Btw, Penang's Prawn sauce can be used & added instead?

Open Kitchen Concept said...

Oh I love marmite. I like yours with prawn paste. I'm so going to try this!

tigerfish said...

I had bovril/marmite when I was a kid. I have almost forgotten what it taste like except I remember it is savory.

lena said...

i had chicken marmite once at a rice stall here but i cant really remember how;s the taste like..maybe something like honey chicken.

Anonymous said...

Hi Sonia,
Looks yummy. May I know where to buy maltose in KL?

Sonia (Nasi Lemak Lover) said...

Hi, you can get it from those Chinese Yok Choy Poh which selling herbs and others.

Lori said...

I am so interested to try this. I haven't had Marmite, but I have had Vegemite. As is probably expected, not growing up with it or being around it, I wasn't a fan. I haven't completely sworn it off though. I'd love to try the flavor in this sauce! I looks great!

Anonymous said...

Hi,
I'm new to your blog, and must say that I love your blog! Your marmite chicken looks very delicious. Can I substitute chicken with pork ribs? Do I use the same ingredients? Thanks

Jaynelle

Sonia (Nasi Lemak Lover) said...

Jaynelle, yes, of course you can change it to pork ribs, but I will suggest you to add a pinch of soda to tenderdize the meat when marinating.

Anonymous said...

Thanks for your quick response! Do I need to wash of the soda before marinating with the rest of the ingredients? Jaynelle

Sonia (Nasi Lemak Lover) said...

Jaynelle, I think better wash Soda away before add in the rest of ingredients..

小小秘密和你share。。。 said...

Daphne said...

Hi,
Came across yr blog recently and am in love with the recipes and yr photos! You are so talented and generous sharing all of it on yr blog. Just wondering if prawn paste is the same as shrimp paste like belacan? Thanks in advance.

Daphne

Sonia ~ Nasi Lemak Lover said...

Daphne, thanks for your support. No , prawn paste is difference from belacan. This prawn paste is use to add into Rojak .

Anonymous said...

Hi Sonia,

Can I shrimp paste n maltose? Thank you.

LL

Anonymous said...

Hi Sonia,

Just realised that I didn't complete my question :)
Can I omit shrimp paste and maltose?
Thanks

LL

Sonia ~ Nasi Lemak Lover said...

LL, if you were to omit all these ingredients, i afraid the taste will not be the same!

Emma said...

I tried to find maltose in Bandar utama, Sri hartamas, Mont kiara but it's fruitless.. I went to the Chinese herbal shop and the shop assistants don't even know what's that. * disappointed* can anyone suggest areas where I can find maltose? Thx

DZ said...

Hi there, I'm such a fan of your blog and I just made this. Thank you so much for your amazing recipe ! The chicken was gone in minutes :)
