I recently got a great deal on whole chicken legs. This is such an easy but savory traditional Chinese cuisine that pretty much all Chinese families cook very often. All you need to do is put all ingredients in one big pot and let it simmer for about 1 to 1.5 hours or until the meat is tender. The sauce is great with rice or noodles. Try it and you will love it!!
Servings: 5-6 Total Time: 90 mins Difficulty: easy
- 5-6 whole chicken legs
- 6-7 cloves of garlics
- Ginger 5-6 slices
- 2 red chillies
- 1 stewing spice bag (star anise, clove, cinnamon and nutmeg, etc.)
- 2 dried cinnamon leaves
- Rice wine 1/8 cup
- Sugar 2 tbsp
- Soy sauce 1 cup
- Some water
Just put all ingredients in one big pot on high heat until boiling. Turn to low and let it simmer for another 60-90 mins or until the meat is tender and colored.
The sauce is good with rice or noodles. You can also use the same pot to stew pork, beef, bean curd, or eggs. It taste the best when you let the meat soak in the sauce over night.
Remember to take the meat out from the sauce after day one or it may be too salty. Enjoy~
