【手撕口水鸡】Sichuan Mouth Watering Chicken





Costco's rotisserie chicken is known to be priced reasonably, thus is one item most members purchase while shopping at Costco. Unfortunately, in our family, we can never finish a whole chicken at a time, so we rarely buy this rotisserie chicken. 

I went shopping at Costco last week and brought one rotisserie chicken since we have not eaten one for a long time. As usual, we were left with more than half of chicken and no one wanted it again.

I suddenly remembered a saliva chicken dish made by a friend on FB before, so I used the leftover chicken to make this dish, it is so tasty, that I think next time when I shop at Costco, rotisserie chicken will be in order!

1/4 只 烤鸡
一点 香菜 (切碎)
1 大勺 烤花生 (稍微碾碎)

1 大勺 蒜蓉
1 大勺 青葱末
1 大勺 芝麻
1-2 大勺 辣椒粉 
1 小勺 花椒粉
1/3 杯 食油
1.5 大勺 黑醋
1 大勺 头抽酱油
1/8 小勺 鸡精粉/味精  可无
1/2 小勺 糖
1/2 小勺 蚝油
1/2 小勺 老抽
2-3 大勺 清水或者高汤

1/4 Rotisserie chicke
a little cilantro (chopped)
1 tbsp roasted peanuts (slightly crushed)

For the sauce:
1 tbsp minced garlic
1 tbsp chopped scallions
1 tbsp sesame seeds
1-2 tbsp Chili powder
1 tsp Sichuan pepper powder
1/3 cup cooking oil
1.5 tbsp black vinegar
1 tbsp premium soy sauce
1/8 tsp chicken bouillon/MSG optional
1/2 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp oyster sauce
1/2 tsp dark soy sauce
2-3 tbsp water or stock

1. 把买来的烤鸡去骨撕成小块摆盘。

2. 芝麻、辣椒粉、蒜蓉、花椒粉放到一个耐热的碗里,热上1/3杯食油,泼一半,拌匀。

3. 加入青葱末,把剩下的热油泼入,静置10分钟。

4. 另外一个碗里把黑醋、头抽酱油、鸡精粉/味精 、糖、蚝油、老抽和2-3 大勺 清水或者高汤混匀。口重的可以加一点盐,我没加,因为烤鸡本来就有味儿了。

5. 把混好的酱汁淋到鸡肉上,再淋上刚刚泼好热油的材料,静置十分钟(可以冰箱里冷藏)。

6. 吃之前撒上花生米和香菜末即可。

1. Break the rotisserie chicken into small pieces and place on a plate, bones discarded.

2. Place sesame seeds, chili powder, minced garlic, and chili powder in a heat-resistant bowl, heat 1/3 cup of cooking oil on stove until it is boiling hot, pour half of the hot oil to the bowl with and mix the oil with all ingredients.

3. Add chopped green onion to the bowl and pour in the remaining hot oil, mix well again and let the mixture stand for 10 minutes.

4. In another bowl, mix black vinegar, premium soy sauce, chicken powder/MSG, sugar, oyster sauce, dark soy sauce and 2-3 tablespoons of water or stock. You can add a little salt if you like, I didn't as the rotisserie chicken is reasoned.

5. Pour the sauce over the chicken, and top with the hot oil with spices, let the chicken marinate with the sauce for ten minutes (you can keep it in the refrigerater for this step).

6. Sprinkle some roasted peanuts and cilantro before serving. Serve cold.
