Ingredients :

21/2 lb chicken
4 spring onions, minced
2.5 cm (1 inch) piece fresh ginger, minced

3 teaspoons salt
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
3 /4 lb rice

2 tablespoons vegetable oil

Method :

Clean chicken and pat dry. Mix onions and ginger with wine and salt. Rub outside and cavity of chicken with the seasonings for 1 hour.

Steam chicken in a wok on a high heat for 35-40 minutes. Allow to cool slightly, then remove and chop into bite-sized pieces. Arrange on a plate and set aside.

Wash rice well then drain thoroughly. Heat 3 table-spoons oil and fry rice for 5 minutes, stirring to coat each grain with oil. Pour in cold water to cover rice by 4 cm (11/2 inches).

Cover the pan, bring to the boil, then turn heat down to lowest point and cook until rice is tender and liquid completely absorbed.

Bring chicken stock to the boil, add washed vegetables and simmer for 1 minute. Lift out and drain. Season soup to taste with salt and soy sauce. Mix together sauce ingredients and spoon into tiny dishes.

Serve the chicken warm rice, the hot stock as a vegetables soup and dipping sauce.

Tips :

Using a Chinese cleaver to chop up the chicken. A regular knife will not do a good job.
