The instruction how to make Crispy skin chicken with garlic sauce

  1. Rinse the chicken and pat dry. Place the shallot and ginger in the cavity of the chicken.
  2. Place a trivet or upturned saucer in the base of a stockpot or large saucepan. Pour enough water into the saucepan to come just to the top of the trivet. Place a heatproof plate on the trivet. Place the chicken on the plate. Cover and bring to a simmer over high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low. Steam for 1 hour 10 minutes or until chicken is just cooked. Carefully remove the chicken and set aside to cool for 2-3 hours or overnight, uncovered, in the fridge.
  3. For the garlic & vinegar sauce, combine all the ingredients in a jug. Cover and set aside to allow the flavours to develop.
  4. Use a sharp knife or kitchen scissors to cut the chicken in half. Cut away the backbone and discard.
  5. Pour enough oil to come one-quarter of the way up the side of a wok. Heat over high heat until temperature reaches 180u00b0C on a cooku2019s thermometer. Carefully lower 1 of the chicken halves into the oil. Cook, turning, for 7-8 minutes or until golden. Transfer to a wire rack set over a baking tray. Repeat with the remaining chicken half. Cut into smaller pieces and transfer to a platter. Drizzle with the dressing and sprinkle with fried chilli, shallot and garlic if using
