Cantonese Cuisine-Steamed Chicken with Red Onion
After living in Guangzhou for 15 years, my favorite is to go to the remote suburbs to find delicious food. I remember that there is a restaurant called Jicuo that makes steamed red onion chicken in Shiqiao, Panyu. I smell a fragrance before I even enter the door. The population is in water! I saw the waiter brought up a large stainless steel plate. The "Hometown Shallot Steamed Chicken" looks very homely, but with the combination of red onion and mellow peanut oil, the taste is rich and the chicken is spicy and delicious. When you're done, don't forget to scoop three spoons of chicken gravy for rice. The oily rice is soft and the white rice is also delicious. Let’s get to know the red onion: its origin was in Palestine, and it was introduced to Europe during the Crusades. Red onion is one of the indispensable ingredients in Chinese cooking to increase the aroma. After cutting the red onion and sautéing it, it is "Red Onion Crisp" is used to stir-fry pork and increase the aroma in soup. It is also an essential ingredient for fried eggs and rice dumplings. I also used red onion in the rice rolls, which is the fragrance I want. The sauce for this steamed chicken with shallots is improved by me on the rice rolls, and the amount is written very accurately. Please increase or decrease in the same proportion according to the size of your chicken, so that you can make your index finger move. Steam chicken!
