Cooking Process:


Heat the oil and sugar wok over medium heat, stirring constantly. When the sugar has carmelized, add the chicken and roll it around in the caramel to coat.

Add the water, soy sauce, ginger, five spice powder and salt. Bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to low and simmer gently, covered, for 45–50 minutes, turning the chicken once, or until the chicken is tender but not falling apart. Turn off the heat and let the chicken sit in the hot liquid, covered, for another 10 minutes.

Gently lift out the chicken and transfer to a chopping board. Serve in parts or cut into thin slices.

Add the sesame oil to the sauce and reduce over high heat until slightly thickened, 6–8 minutes. Drizzle a little sauce over the chicken and serve any extra on the side.
