This classic Chinese clay pot dish draws heavily upon the cooking influences of the southern part of China. In this Grokker Premium video, Chef Alex Ong of San Francisco's world famous Betelnut Restaurant shares his recipe and technique for this classic. Chestnuts, lemongrass, green garlic, brown sugar, and jalapeños are employed to create a modern twist to this timeless favorite. The sweet and spicy flavors are counterbalanced by the acidity of rice wine, to merge into a palate pleasing and tender chicken course, perfect for a homey family meal.
