Authentic Chinese Soy Sauce Chicken


1 person made this

This is a simple and authentic Chinese recipe. The chicken tastes like what is available at Chinese restaurants in Chinatown. The ingredients should be easily available from Chinese grocerers. The sauce to cook the chicken can also be reused several times. Tip: Put the sauce in the refrigerator after cooking and remove the (harden) layer of oil before reusing.

Serves: 4 

  • 1.2 kg whole chicken cleaned
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1 bottle (410 ml) Lee Kum Kee Chicken Marinade
  • 410 ml water
  • 4 cloves crushed garlic
  • 4 slices crushed ginger, 1 cm each
  • 1 piece star anise
  • 1 teaspoon five spice powder
  • 100 ml chinese cooking wine
