Chinese Recipe : Salted Chicken

This is an Eastern Chinese recipe


1 x 4 lb oven ready chicken
1 tbsp salt
2 tsps freshly ground black pepper
5 ½ pints chicken stock
1 ¼ cups dry sherry
1 tsp MSG
3 scallion, finely chopped (optional)
3 slices ginger root (optional)
3-4 scallions to garnish


1. Prick the skin of the chicken with a fork, then rub the salt and pepper all over it. Put the chicken in a large heatproof bowl, cover with foil and place a heavy weight on top. Leave in the refrigerator for 12 hours.

2. Place the chicken stock, sherry and MSG in a pan and bring to the boil. Remove from the heat and allow to cool, then pour over the chicken. Leave to marinate for 5 to 6 hours.

3. Either steam the chicken with the scallions and ginger for 1 hour or cook it in the boiling sauce for 30 minutes until tender. Serve hot or cold, sprinkled with the garnish.
