Sien Shu Gi is to die for: simple yet scrumptious. It’s a famous street snack in Taiwan. On a recent visit I hung around the street-food stand, watching the chef prepare this, determined not to leave the country without it. In the end I bribed him. (Just kidding!) Here is my adapted version, with chicken thighs as the meat is a lot juicier than breast. Drumsticks work well too. Good accompaniments would be steamed rice or chunky fries and a cold beer.
