DIRECTIONS

  • Wash chicken well and pat dry with paper towels.
  • Place ginger and spring onion in the cavity of the chicken.
  • Bring the sauce ingredients to the boil in a saucepan large enough to hold the chicken. Make sure honey and sugar dissolve completely.
  • Place the chicken in the saucepan with the sauce. Bring back to the boil, basting the sauce over the chicken, then reduce heat to a low simmer.
  • Simmer the chicken for 15 minutes; the sauce should be just bubbling. Turn the chicken over to cook for another 15 minutes, then return the chicken to its back again for a final 25-30 minutes of low simmering.
  • The chicken is cooked when the flesh on the drumstick has shrunk back from the bone.
  • Remove the chicken to cool to room temperatures, then chop into pieces, chinese style, for serving.
  • To serve, spoon about 3 tablespoons of the reheated sauce over the chicken and garnish attractively with fresh spring onion curls.
