[Homemade] Soy Sauce Chicken

Comments
Recipe, typing this on my phone, apologies in advance for poor quality. Soak 10 dried shiitake mushrooms in 1lt hot water for 1hr. In a large cast iron saucepan with a lid- sauté two, sliced thumb size pieces of ginger, 4 Star anise, 1 stick cinnamon and (briefly) 5 cloves garlic. Add 1/4 cup Chinese cooking wine and boil off the alcohol. Drain the mushrooms, add the water to saucepan. Also add 2 cups light soy, 2 cups dark soy. Bring liquid to a boil then add 1 whole chicken, 5 stalks chopped green scallions and the shiitake mushrooms. If needed, add water or chicken stock until the bird is submerged. Bring back to boil, then reduce to simmer for 30 minutes with lid on. Turn off the heat and allow chicken to steep for 1hr. Drain, chop and serve with steamed greens and noodles or rice. *many recipes call for sugar in the ingredients, I don’t use any because I prefer the sauce to me more savoury than sweet. Edit- sauté with 2 teaspoons sesame oil and 2 teaspoons vegetable oil.

I am not convinced you can have glaze like that on the skin with just boil and simmer. Did you pour over the sauce on the chicken afterward?
Damn. Thank you so much!
And i thought i eat a fuck tonne of salt.
I was just about to scream for this after seeing the image, thank you OP!

Wow, that looks excellent. How did you prepare the chicken itself?

Do you have a food insta?

Ah, the superdark broth contrasting with the noodles peeking out, the colour on those mushrooms, the shiny glaze on the chicken.
This is excellent.
Thank you so much, it is such a good looking dish.
The color contrasts are beautiful, but I'm guessing that this would be waaaaay too salty for me personally.
Finally, some good fucking food
What kind of noodles ?
I can't speak for OP, but they look like somen noodles, or something similar.
looks like chow mein noodles
This looks aesthetic af.
wow looking yummy 😋🤩
Is it possible to get the recipe?
It’s in the comments now.
The chicken browns up that much on a boil/poach? And why wouldn't you throw there greens into the soup to cook with everything?
yes the soy sauce soaks into the skin.

Dang yum, where is that bowl from? It's beautiful
That skin is so beautiful I thought it was roast duck.
Good job ;)

Thats homemade?? Looks like a 5 star restaurant
Lol did you light this photo?
This clearly is not a snap and go situation.
What kind of light and camera did you use?
I use a canon 6d with a continuous light softbox. I have the setup in my office so I can just whip through there with a plate, take a couple of quick snaps and still eat the food hot.
Dude you can't post this without a recipe
It’s in the comments now.
Poached chicken? I hear that’s the move. Looks great.
My family normally steams it after marinating the chicken for a day or so.
I need this in my life!
Yay
Wow, this is gorgeous!
Perfect!
Let's get the details on that broth though
You’re making my mouth salavate!

Did you make the noodles yourself, and if not, can you recommend the brand/type?

What kind of noodles are these? Don't look like rice and look too thin to be egg?
Could be soba noodles

See comments.
Gorgeous plate of good!
Scrolling through your profile while hungry is a huge mistake. And that looks delicious.
Wow, food porn, I can bet money this taste so good.
Those mushrooms look freaking choice 👌
This looks way too salty but maybe I’m wrong. It looks like it because the broth is so dark. How is it so dark?
soy sauce is dark
