Put the chicken in a large saucepan and add boiling water to come halfway up the sides of the chicken. Cover tightly and simmer until just tender, about 45 minutes to 1 hour. Drain, rinse under cold water and dry with kitchen paper.
Mix together the vinegar, soy sauce, honey, sherry and treacle(molasses). Brush this all over the chicken and then hang the chicken in an airy place to dry, for about 30 minutes. Brush over the remaining soy sauce mixture and hang again for 20-30 minutes. Mix the flour and salt
together and rub well into the chicken skin. Fry in deep hot peanut oil until golden and crisp. Drain well on absorbent kitchen paper.
Chop the chicken into 8 pieces and serve warm with the following dips:
1 tblsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1/4 tsp salt
Mix together, place in a small saucepan and heat until very hot,

i'm quite a loser when it comes to cooking...i always use those packet mixes that u can get from the supermarkets...anyway, the Maggie Bee Hoon Goreng mix is quite good....
just fry some garlic and shallots...fry some veggies (beansprouts etc.), meat (char siew, luncheon meat, prawns etc.) till cooked...add the bee hoon and sauce and some salt to taste...& u'll get yummy fried bee hoon in no time!
Hi CRIM, always soak yr bee hoon in hot water till soft. Sori, u hv to feel it after a while , usually abt 5 min or so (oi, if u happen to dig yr nose, pls remember to wash them. HEE HEE HEE)
Yup, then flw KPO recommendations for the rest.
Also, U can either
- add 'jiew ching' or
- oyster sauce (but never both, otherwise, it is better if u use sea water)
- or even those bottled chili sauce. in a nutshell, how adventurous or creative do u want 2 be ?
