Chinese Recipe : Shredded Chicken with Oyster Sauce
2 chicken thighs about 8 oz each
½ oz agar agar
1 oz toasted peanuts
2 spring onions
2 tbsp ginger juice
2 tbsp wine
1/3 tsp salt
1 tsp sugar
¼ cup stock
3 tbsp oyster sauce
1 tsp sugar
¼ tsp pepper
1 tsp sesame oil
Rinse the chicken thighs with boiling water and pat dry with a clean towel. Slash 3 slits lengthwise on each side and place on to a platter.
Mix the marinade thoroughly in a small bowl. Pour half of the marinade on to one side of the chicken thighs and turn over the other side to coat with the remaining marinade. Leave aside to soak for an hour. Turn the thighs over every 20 minutes. Place in a steamer to cook for 12 minutes. Remove and leave aside to cool. Tear the flesh into thick strips of similar size to the agar agar.
Wash the agar agar in warm water and towel dry. Cut into 2” lengths and arrange on a platter. Top with the chicken shreds.
Crush the peanuts. Wash and dice the spring onions.
Clean a small saucepan and pour in the mixed seasoning to bring to boil. Season to taste and scoop on to the chicken. Sprinkle with the crushed peanuts and spring onions and serve cold.
