Main St. Imperial Taiwanese Gourmet - Crispy Salted Chicken
#4. Crispy Salted Chicken 香脆腌鸡
Interesting cooking technique, and the one I am not at all familiar with - chicken was nice and crispy in the outside, but not greasy. Meat was perfectly cooked and seasoned - it was tender, juicy and flavorful. Perhaps, my favorite dish of the entire lunch.
To quote from rasamalaysia.com: "The essence of salt and pepper chicken lies in the generous use of five-spice powder. Please take note that the five-spice powder used in Taiwanese salt and pepper chicken is different from the regular five-spice powder you are accustomed to. In fact, it’s labeled as “炸盐酥鸡粉” or “fried salt and pepper chicken powder” and it’s made in Taiwan. You can get it at Asian stores, but not all of them carry it though."
