1 person made this

This is a very simple recipe with only a few ingredients but it is tender and extremely flavourful. Serve with rice, or as a side dish with a larger meal.


Serves: 4 

  • 6 whole chicken legs, cut into drumsticks and thighs
  • salt, as needed
  • 3 slices fresh ginger
  • 2 tablespoons chopped garlic
  • 4 spring onions, chopped
  • Sauce
  • 3 spring onions, chopped
  • 3 tablespoons oil
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 slices fresh ginger, finely chopped

Preparation:15min  ›  Cook:40min  ›  Extra time:15min marinating  ›  Ready in:1hour10min 

  1. Massage some salt into the chicken and let marinate for 15 minutes.
  2. Place the ginger slices and garlic on the bottom of a dish, top with the chicken, then scatter with spring onions.
  3. Steam the chicken for 30 minutes over high heat or until cooked through. Allow the chicken to cool a little before putting it into a resealable plastic bag. Drop the whole bag into ice water and allow the chicken to cool completely.
  4. De-bone the chicken, then cut the meat evenly together with its attached skin. Shred the remaining chicken by hand.
  5. Arrange the shredded chicken on the the bottom of a serving dish, then arrange the sliced chicken on top. Reheat the chicken to 250 degrees in the oven.
  6. In a small bowl, make the sauce by mixing together the spring onions, oil, salt and finely chopped ginger. Serve with the chicken.
