Black Satin Chicken Recipe

Black Satin Chicken Recipes

Ingredients :

3 dried Chinese mushrooms

1/2 cup hot water

1/2 cup dark soy sauce

1/4 cup soft brown sugar

2 tbsp Shaosing (Chinese) wine

1 tbsp soy sauce

1 tsp sesame oil

1/4 tsp ground star anise or 1 whole star anise

1.4 kg chicken

4 cm ginger, peeled and grated

1 tsp salt

Method :

Soak the mushrooms in the water; drain, reserving the liquid. Combine the dark soy sauce, sugar, wine, soy sauce, sesame oil, star anise and reserved liquid in a small pan and bring to the boil, stirring continuously. Rub the inside of the chicken with ginger and salt. Place the chicken in a large pan. Cover with the soy marinade and mushrooms, turning the chicken over so that it is evenly coated. Cover and cook the chicken over a low heat, turning regularly, for 55 minutes or until the juices run clear when pierced with a skewer. Remove the chicken and allow to cool briefly. Boil the sauce over high heat until thick and syrupy. Discard mushrooms.

Using a Chinese cleaver or large sharp knife, cut down the backbone to divide the chicken in two. Lay, cut sides down, on a chopping board and remove the wings and drumsticks. Cut the body of the chicken into 2cm pieces; cut the drumsticks and wings in two. Arrange the chicken pieces on a serving platter, brush lightly with syrupy sauce and serve. Delicious with sliced spring onions. Alternatively you should serve the sauce separately for dipping.

Serves 10

Dark soy sauce is thicker in consistency than standard soy and is available from Asian food stores.
