Cantonese Soy Braised Chicken

  • 3 tablespoons oil
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 whole chicken, excess fat removed
  • 6 1/2 cups (1.5 litres) water

  • Large walnut-sized knob of galangal root, bruised
  • 3/4 teaspoon Chinese five spice powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt

When the sugar melts and is caramelised, add the chicken and roll it around in the sauce until the entire chicken is coated. Add the water, soy sauce, galangal, five spice powder and salt. Bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to low and simmer covered, for 45 minutes. Turn the chicken onc until the chicken is tender but not falling apart. Turn off the heat and let the chicken sit covered, for another 10 minutes. Gently lift the chicken out of the pot onto a chopping board. Slice chicken into small pieces. Garnish with cucumber and green onions.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.
