I have loads of food pictures in my files but I chose this chicken recipe as I happen to run through an article about bird flu. Apparently, China closes all Beijing poultry markets.
Tsk tsk. What’s gonna happen w/ all the KFCs around when there are more than a hundred outlets in Beijing alone? There was also another article that says they open over 250 restaurants a year in China and operates in every Chinese province and region except Tibet. Hmmmm… but then, they were asked to stay out of Tibet.
Just when I am having some serious craving for chicken curry. Anyways, here’s my chicken hamonado recipe similar to my pork hamonado.
1 large chicken thigh/leg
1 tbsp. of crushed garlic
1 onion, chopped
3 tbsp. of oyster sauce
3 tbsp of vinegar (you may replace this w/ pineapple juice)
2 tbsp. of sugar
salt & crushed peppercorns
Mix the above ingredients with enough water, about half an inch above the chicken, and simmer until the sauce is thick & almost dry. Easy, right? Here is more about hamonado.
