Recipe: 手撕鸡

周日在教会的厨房第一次当主厨,我老公当帮厨。大家都说我做的手撕鸡很不错哦~~~ 想当年,初到德国,我可是连饭都能煮糊的人儿呀!还好陈师母教会了我做这道菜,大家都来学学怎么做手撕鸡吧! 材料: 鸡大腿肉、姜黄粉、青葱、姜、辣椒油、生抽、老抽、蒜头、盐、芝麻 冷水下锅,青葱切段,姜切片,加点料酒,煮鸡大腿肉。 鸡腿煮沸去泡沫后,加姜黄粉入锅内,再煮到鸡不出血水即可 (用筷子捅鸡肉,能顺利插下,通常就表示鸡肉熟了)。 捞出鸡腿肉,手撕鸡腿肉,放在一个碗待用。 放多一点的辣椒油在炒锅里。你也可以自己炸辣椒油,但是我比较懒,所以就直接用李锦记的辣椒油了。 爆蒜,加生抽,老抽,蒜青,盐(各一汤匙)入内。 浇在备好的鸡丝上调味。 另炒香芝麻,撒在混和好的鸡丝上。 这样,就可以吃啦!我下面这张没放芝麻,辣椒油放得有点多了,但是味道还是不错的哈!
