Bon-bon Chicken with Spicy Sesame

ingredients

serves 6 - 8
1 whole chicken, about 1 kg (2 1/4 lb)
1.2 litres (2 pints) 5 cups water
15 ml (1 tbsp) sesame oil
shredded cucumber, to garnish

for the sauce

30 ml (2 tbsp) light soy sauce
5 ml (1 tsp) sugar
15 ml (1 tbsp) finely chopped spring onions
5 ml (1 tsp) red chilli oil
2.5 ml (1/2 tsp) Szechuan peppercorns
5 ml (1 tsp) white sesame seeds
30 ml (2 tbsp) sesame paste, or 30 ml (2 tbsp) peanut butter creamed with a little sesame oil

method

1. Clean the chicken well. In a wok or saucepan bring the water to a rolling boil, add the chicken, reduce the heat and cook under cover for 40-45 minutes. Remove the chicken and immerse in cold water to cool.

2. After at least 1 hour, remove the chicken and drain; dry well with kitchen paper and brush with sesame oil. Carve the meat from the legs, wings and breast and pull the meat off the rest of the bones.

3. On a flat surface, pound the meat with a rolling pin, then tear the meat into shreds with your fingers.

4. Place the meat in a dish with the shredded cucumber around the edge. In a bowl, mix together all the sauce ingredients, keeping a few spring onions to garnish. Pour over the chicken and serve.

Cook's Tip
