栗子炆雞翼 Braised Chicken Wings with Chestnuts (Eng. Subtitle)


I am going to cook a dish of braised chicken wings with chestnuts Basic ingredient is of course, chicken wings and chestnuts by the way, the chestnuts are, of course, they are available at market but you have to do some steps such as remove the skin but these are cooked chestnuts my wife bought a bag of fried chestnuts yesterday but she could not finish them all don’t want to waste it, I will use them for cooking after removing the shells brought several pieces chicken wings to make the dish there are other ingredients, I will talk later first of all, have to handle the chicken wings these are frozen chicken wings I have to defrost them I will soak the chicken wings into water and then add salt to remove the icy taste soak them until all have been defrosted then use them later to cook this dish I need one clove of garlic it is simple to prepare the garlic remove the tip and then crush it slightly don’t break it or smash it and then the skin is very easy to be removed just need to cut some garlic slides garlic is ready I also need one piece of shallot I will cut shallot like this then from the tip peel the skin like this dump the tip part I want small pieces so I cut from here and then chop until the bottom and dump the root part so just cut the shallot like this to add more good flavor for this dish I will add some spring onion I want to white colour part of the spring onion use the part need the root this part and then this part I will cut it open I like to add some coriander too whole piece of coriander wash it remove the root part then chop the rest into several pieces that’s it I will soak them into water soak them into water the chicken wings have been soaked for an hour they are all soft and fully defrosted after soaking, the next step is to drain away the water rinse again under running water and then drain away the water then use…. to make sure they are dried use kitchen paper to dry out the chicken wings just like this and then I need some dried mushroom these mushroom have been rehydrated I am not going to talk about how to rehydrate dried mushroom you may search at YouTube there are many videos at YouTube about preparing of dried mushroom mushroom after rehydration can be stored at freezer anytime I want to use mushroom, I can get some from freezer so no need to do the hydration process every time to prepare the mushroom I will cut them into half all mushroom have been chopped into half like this I will use them later heat up a wok with oil then first of all put shallot to the wok then garlic stir fry them at this time put chicken wings in stir fry them don’t use too high heat or you will burn the chicken wing happened I have some yesterday left over roast duck and BBQ pork taste matches so don’t waste, add them in cook them too after stir fry a while I can smell the good flavour and then add chestnuts add mushroom some people may prefer to fry the chicken longer it doesn’t really matter to me longer may be more crispy on the skin to me fry more crispy then more crispy it doesn’t matter and then I have to season it first of all put a little bit Chinese yellow wine (Shao Hsing Hua Tiao Chiew) little bit of Shao Hsing Wine little bit of salt little bit of black pepper little bit of sugar little bit of soy sauce little bit of dark soy sauce little bit of oyster sauce just a little bit is enough add some water add the spring onion cover it to braise will cook about 10 minutes wait until sauce is reduced chicken wings are tender and well done then the dish is ready after 10 minutes take a look first seems ok you can see sauce has been reduced and is thick now it is ready it is ok can be transferred to a dish since this is a home dish, although it is braised chicken wings with chestnuts, there is some roast ducks and BBQ pork. taste matches so don’t waste to make it look nicer before serving add some corianders on top it will look nicer for decoration and add colour, just add a little bit looks nice, right? it is ready and can be served on table
