  1. Go to “”. If you cannot read Chinese, in the middle of the page click on “English” and it will turn to English. This is a Hong Kong website.

  2. This is a very traditional old Cantonese recipe, nowadays, you hardly can find it on the menu of most modern Chinese restaurants in Hong Kong. I like it very much when I was a kid, you can replace the chicken to porkchop (I actually like the porkchop one more).

    < <<<<<<<< Paper-wrapped Fried Chicken >>>>>> Serves 6

    500 g chicken thighs, cut into 12 slices
    12 Chinese pea pods
    2 stalks of fresh corriandor leaves, finely chopped (optional)
    4 tablespoons of shredded green onions
    2 tablespoon of ginger root
    12 5-6 inches square sheets of cellophane paper or baking paper
    oil for frying or you can bake it

    1 tablespoon light soy sauce
    1 tablespoon oyster sauce
    1/2 teaspoon sea salt
    1/2 teaspoon sugar
    1 tablespoon cooking wine / sherry
    1/2 teaspoon cornstarch
    1 teaspoon garlic powder
    1 teaspoon sesame oil
    a dash of white or black pepper

    1) Mix marinade ingredient in a bowl, stir well, marinate chicken slices for at least 20 minutes, set aside

    2) Place a slice of chicken on a sheet of cellophane paper, place 1 Chinese pea pod, a portion of shredded green onion and shredded ginger root on top of the chicken. Wrap to form a rectangulalr packet. (Seal with stapler, I’m lazy – or a toothpick) Repeat until all packets are formed.

    3) Heat oil over medium heat; test the oil with bamboo chopstick, when you see the bubble sticking on the chopstick, it means the oil is hot enough, deep fry the paper-wrapped chicken over medium heat for a 3 minutes or till golden, the oil temp. should not be higher than 160 degree C, or else, it would cause cancer.

    4) When the packets rise to the surface, use a slotted spoos to press them to the bottom of the fryer, wok to release any oil that is inside the packets. Remove the packets to a tray for a while, let the oil dip for a moment.

    5) Then serve on serving plate. (while unwrapping the paper and smelling the aroma of the food, I feel heavenly good!)

    You may add shredded shitake mushroom (boiled) or red chili instead of Chinese green pea pods.

    Baking is more healthy, just pre-heat oven 180 degree C before you prepare the meat, bake for around 30 – 40 minutes.
