Ingredients

  • 1 roasting chicken, 4 to 4½ pounds
  • 4 Chinese pork sausages, thinly sliced diagonally

Sauce

  • 2 tablespoons thin soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons Shaoxing wine or dry sherry
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • Pinch of salt

Method

Steaming

  1. Arrange the back pieces on a plate.

  2. Surround them with the rest of the chicken pieces. Between the pieces, insert thin slices of pork sausage. Put the breast meat on the bottom, so that it is surrounded by the longer-cooking dark meat.

  3. Pour the flavoring sauce over the chicken.

  4. Place the plate in a steamer set in a wok for 60 to 70 minutes, or until the chicken feels firm rather than mushy when pressed.

  5. Serve the chicken on the platter with the sausage.

  • Suggested Beverage: Light Zinfandel or Beaujolais
