This amazing drunkin chicken recipe gets its name from the Shaoxing wine it's cooked in, and will not disappoint!
1 whole chicken
380mls LKK dark soy sauce
¼ cup Shao Xing rice wine
2cm knob ginger, finely sliced
1 clove of garlic, peeled and roughly chopped
1 star anise
1 ½ tbsp. sugar
1⅓ cups water
2 tsp Olivado sesame oil
Place the chicken breast side down into a saucepan just large enough to fit it. Add remaining ingredients and bring to a boil over a med high heat. When boiling reduce heat to low, cover and simmer gently for 8 minutes.
Turn chicken over and simmer for 20 minutes and baste all the time with the liquor to ensure it stays moist. Remove the saucepan from the heat and let cool.
When cool remove the chicken and brush with sesame oil. Cut into 8 pieces and serve with a little cooking liquor on the side.
