A typical Cantonese dish, Soya Sauce Chicken is made of chicken wings braised in soy sauce.
1 cup soy sauce
3 cups water
4 cups chicken
2-inch piece of ginger (peeled and sliced)
3 cloves garlic (smashed)
3 tablespoon sugar
1 inch cinnamon stick
2 pieces of star anise
How To
In a large pot, heat the chicken, soy sauce and water over medium flame. Bring the liquid to a simmer, then reduce heat to low and cover the pot. Make sure heat is as low as can be without turning it off. Add the ginger, garlic, sugar, cinnamon and star anise. Allow the chicken to simmer for 30 minutes. Ladle the chicken and sauce into a plate. Garnish this soya sauce chicken with spring onion leaves.
