My mom gave me a Chinese cookbook a while back, but I have never actually opened it or used it. Now I cook a lot of run of the mill Chinese food, using a lot of pre-made sauces thanks to Lee Kum Kee. However, this time I decided to open the book and try a chicken recipe. This recipe is called “Shiny Chicken” and I was hesitant because of the name, but it actually turned out pretty well. It can be used as an appetizer, or serve it with some rice and call it a main dish. However you want to do it! Have a crack at it and let me know what you think.
- 1/2 chicken, or chicken wings/legs
- 4 tbsp soy sauce, separated
- 2 green onions chopped
- 1 tbsp ground ginger
- 1 1/2 tbsp sugar
- 2 tbsp white vinegar
- t tsp sesame oil
- oil for frying
- Wash and dry the chicken
- Rub the chicken with 1 1/2 tbsp of soy sauce
- Combine the green onion, ginger, sugar, vinegar, sesame oil, and 2 1/2 tbsp soy sauce in a bowl and set aside
- Heat a wok and add the oil to fry (or use a deep fryer if you got one)
- Fry the chicken wings until skin is golden and crispy (and the meat is cooked)
- Pour the sauce mixture over the chicken and feast!
