drunken chicken (醉鸡)

i added sliced ginger, garlic & shallot & spring onions & 1 teaspoon salt & boiled about 1.5l water in a dutch oven. then i added the washed & cleaned 1/2 chicken to the pot & once the water boiled again, i lowered fire & simmered for 10 minutes. then i turned off the fire & let the chicken cooled for 2 hrs. i then took out the chicken & placed in a ice water bath. i deboned & cut the chicken into serving sizes & placed in a glassware large enough for cut chicken to be laid out in single layer.

i then mixed 2 cups of shoaxing wine (绍兴酒), 1 cup of chicken stock, 2 tablespoon of fish sauce (or to taste), and cover the chicken with the wine marinade.  i then placed the covered glass container in the fridge overnight. the flavour was excellent when i tried it next day about 24hrs later. 🙂

the current preparation is quite good really, like most restaurants’, but i will try a bit more to see if i can improve further.
