Ingredients for Sizzling Chicken Recipe:

1 young chicken (about 600 grams or 1.3 lb)
1,500 grams (3 cups) cooking oil (only 1/15 to be consumed)
30 grams (1 2/3 tbsp) soy sauce
30 grams (1 2/3 tbsp) spicy soy sauce
1 gram (1/4 tsp) MSG
15 grams (1 tbsp) sugar
1 gram (1/5 tsp) pepper powder
5 grams (1/6 oz) chopped garlic
5 grams (1/6 oz) chopped ginger
5 grams (1/6 oz) finely cut scallions
15 grams (1 tbsp) cooking wine
50 grams (3 1/3 tbsp) cooking wine
50 grams (3 tbsp) water

Method to cook Sizzling Chicken Recipe:

Step 1, Cut open the chicken from the back and break the bones in the back, chest and legs. Where the meat is thick, make a few cuts to better absorb the seasonings. Marinate in soy sauce for about 15 minutes.

Step 2, Heat the oil in a wok over strong fire to about 180-220℃ and deep-fry the chicken until the skin turns orange in color. Turn the fire to low to cook until the chicken is done. Take out, reduce the chicken to small chunks and put on a plate.

Step 3, Put 25 g (1 2/3 tbsp) of oil in the wok and stir-fry the scallions, ginger and garlic until they produce a strong aroma. Add the cooking wine, spicy soy sauce, pepper powder, water, sugar and MSG, and bring to a boil. Sprinkle the sauce onto the chicken chunks.

Now, this Sizzling Chicken Recipe is ready to serve. Enjoy it with steamed rice.
