About this Recipe

This Chinese inspired dish brings together well seasoned chicken with a fresh green onion-ginger sauce for dipping liberally.

Ingredients

CHINESE CHICKEN:
1 Maple Leaf Prime Naturally® Whole Chicken
2 tbsp (30 mL) Kosher salt, divided
1 inch, (2.5 cm) Piece of gingerroot, peeled and crushed
4 Cloves garlic
1 tbsp (15 mL) Sesame oil
GREEN ONION – GINGER SAUCE:
.25 cup (60 mL) Vegetable or grape seed oil
1 Bunch of green onions, thinly sliced
.25 cup (60 mL) Finely minced gingerroot
.5 tsp (2 mL) Sherry vinegar (optional)
1 tsp (5 mL) Light soy sauce (optional)
Salt

Directions

CHINESE CHICKEN:
SEASON chicken liberally inside and out with 1 tbsp (15 mL) of kosher salt. Fill a large pot with enough water to cover the chicken. Add ginger, garlic and remaining salt to the pot. Bring to a boil. Place the chicken in the pot breast side up and return to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 45 minutes. Turn the chicken and continue to simmer for 30-45 minutes or until the internal temperature reaches 185°F (85°C). Carefully remove the chicken from the pot. Pat the chicken dry and rub with sesame oil. Allow to cool for 15-20 minutes before cutting into pieces using kitchen shears or a large cleaver.

GREEN ONION – GINGER SAUCE:
HEAT oil in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Add remaining ingredients and stir to combine. If sauce is too thick and a little more oil before removing from heat. Serve warm or cold drizzled over the chicken.

Notes

Serve with steamed jasmine rice and bok choy
