Crispy Chicken

Crispy fried chicken is a standard dish in the Cantonese cuisine of southern China and Hong Kong.
The chicken is fried in such a way that the skin is extremely crunchy, but the white meat is relatively soft. This is done by first poaching the chicken in water with spices (e.g. star anise, cinnamon, nutmeg, Sichuan pepper, ginger, fennel, and scallions), drying it, coating with a syrup of vinegar and sugar, letting it dry thoroughly (which helps make the skin crispy) and deep frying. The dish often served with two side dishes, a pepper salt (椒鹽) and prawn crackers (蝦片). The pepper salt, coloured dark white to grey, is dry-fried separately in a wok. It is made of salt and Sichuan pepper. Traditionally this dish is eaten at night. It is also one of the traditional chicken dishes used in Chinese weddings and other Asian weddings.
