Preparation Time: 15 mins

Cooking Time: 60 mins

Serving: 2


For Chicken

  • 1 whole spring chicken
  • 2 teaspoons of salt for cleaning chicken
  • 2 tablespoons of sesame oil
  • 5 inches ginger peeled & sliced
  • 4 cloves of smashed garlic 
  • 1/2 teaspoon of white pepper
  • 3 stalks of green onion cut into small sections


  1. Boil pot of water. At the same time, rub the chicken with salt to clean it. Nicely wash the chicken (inside & outside).
  2. Pre-boiling - put the chicken in when boiling, make sure the water goes inside the chicken, so that the blood will come out. Boil for about 5-6 minutes, take the chicken out and discard all the scum and water.
  3. Refill the pot with water that is about to cover the whole chicken. Add in garlic, ginger & green onion. Once it is boiled, turn to lowest heat. 
  4. Cover with lid and cook for 20-25 minutes in lowest heat.
  5. Transfer the chicken from pot to a bowl of ice water to cool down. This cooling process will keep the chicken meat soft & tender. 
  6. Dry with paper towels and rub over the chicken with sesame oil.
  7. Ready to serve
