This is one of the Chinese dishes which I chose to prepare from this month’s selected cookbook for Cookbook Countdown Event #19.
It is an easy and simple dish to prepare. The shredded chicken meat is tender and sweet. The sauce is easy to prepare, fragrant and tasty spread over the shredded meat.
1 large deboned chicken whole leg
½ tbsp each chopped ginger, garlic and spring onions
½ tbsp hot chilli oil
1-2 tbsp toasted white sesame seeds
1 tbsp each light soy sauce and black vinegar
1 tsp each sugar and sesame seed oil
- Bring a pot of water to boil, add in chicken whole leg to cook. Bring to boil again, then off heat. Leave chicken whole leg to steep for 5-10 minutes until cooked through. Remove to cool before shredding.
- Meanwhile, put sauce ingredients in a blender to blend until fine and thick. Mix with chopped garlic and ginger.
- Arrange shredded chicken on serving platter, spread sauce on top, drizzle hot pepper oil and garnish with spring onions.
