Chinese Style Chicken Legs

A super, super recipe - because it is made simple and the meat prepared in this way is very tasty and interesting. Unlike other Chinese recipes, this one is very simple to prepare at home, without sophisticated ingredients. Of course you have to have at least soy sauce, without it we can't even call the chicken "Chinese".

You can use any piece of chicken, with or without bone, here we made boned legs.


Chicken meat
1.5 kg
Soy sauce
100 ml
Sunflower oil
100 ml
2 tbsp

Step by step


Wash the chicken well, put it in a bowl and pour the soy sauce over it.

Stir and leave to marinate for a few hours, at least 3 hours.


After this time we start to prepare the meat.

Pour the oil into a pan, put 2 tablespoons of sugar in it and let the pan on the heat heat well.


Stir the sugar periodically until it caramelizes.


Put the meat with the soy sauce in the pan.

Be careful that it will be very hot, you must do it quickly so as not to burn yourself with oil. It is better to reduce the heat under the pan 2 minutes before putting the meat.

Mix the meat and let it cook for about 5 minutes.


About this way, you notice that the chicken pieces tighten and harden easily.


Pour hot boiling water over the meat in the pan, to cover it well.

Bring to a boil over high heat.


After a while the water in the pan will evaporate and the thighs will start to brown.

Stir periodically to make it beautiful on all sides, then turn off the heat.


Serve them with any favorite garnish, we had sauteed carrots.

Good appetite!
