Number of Servings: 14


    2-4 1/2 to 5 lb. broiler/fryer chickens
    1/4 cup light soy sauce
    2 T sesame oil
    2 bunches chopped green onions
    1 T sea salt
    3/4 cup peanut oil


Put each chicken into a pot and cover with water. Put a lid on the pot, turn on high heat and bring to a boil. Boil 5 minutes then turn off the heat. Leave lid on pot. Let chickens sit in hot water in pot with lid on for 3-4 hours.

Remove chickens from pot and clean: remove skin, bones and any fat you can. Take the chicken meat and shred into a 9x13 pan.

Pour soy sauce and sesame oil over the chicken and mix well. (If you need to, you can heat the chicken briefly in a microwave at this point.)

Cut spring onions on the diagonal and make a mound of onions down the center of the pan with the chicken. Sprinkle 1 T salt over all.

Heat peanut oil in a sauce pan until smoking. Pour over chicken mixture and toss well.

Makes 14 1 cup servings (approx. 6 oz.).

I serve this with sticky rice and a mandarin orange salad - delicious!
