Crispy Pork Belly & Braised Chicken With Quail Eggs and Mixed Vegetables

Valentine Treats =D
It is our second year of Valentines together as husband and wife. My husband gave me a dozen of multicoloured tulips and we just decided to have dinner at home. What makes our dinner special is that we cooked separate dish of our own recipes. He cooked Crispy Oven Roasted pork belly while I prepared Braised Chicken with Mixed Vegetables and Quail Eggs. My husband did not made much effort because he just boiled, seasoned with fish sauce and pepper then set the pork to convectional oven. Thus, I could say that his cooking tricks really does magic. And since my husband’s recipe will take less than an hour, I still have enough time to prepare my dish. So here are our recipes.
