1 kg Young Chicken (frozen chicken may not yield great results)
2 slices Ginger
230 g Chinese Wine

Wash and clean the chicken. Discard the intestines and the feet.

Bring the water to a boil. Add in ginger, spring onion and xanthoxylum seeds.

Poach Chicken in the boiling water for about 15 minutes. Turn off the fire and let it soak for another 5 minutes until cooked.

Remove chicken from the stock and let it cool. Strain oil from the stock and add in the salt. Add Chinese wine when the stock is cold.

Chop the cooked chicken into bite-size pieces and soak in the wine stock. Leave in the fridge for about 6 hours and the dish will then be ready.
