Home Made Drunk Chicken

Hong Kong weather is turning hot, so I tried to make a cool dinner last night.
Drunk chicken is a famous Shanghainese cold cut starter and is quite easy to make at home. Season the chicken (thighs or wings) with grinded black pepper, salt and a bit of soy sauce. Add Shao Xing cooking wine (usually known as Hua Diao wine) depends on the amount of alcohol you can take.

You can season for overnight if you want stronger fragrance, otherwise just a couple of hours will do. Wrap the whole thing up with aluminum foil, pin a few holes with a toothpick and steam for 15 minutes. Let it cool down and put into the fridge for a couple of hours before serving. Wow...I really love the fragrance, very delicious. Of course, my cool dinner also included soba and fruits.
