How to Make Chicken with Wine & Ginger – Traditional Chinese Recipe

This is a warm, wholesome recipe for chicken with wine and ginger. Increasingly popular in restaurants for its rich flavor, it’s often listed on menus as “drunken chicken”. It’s famous as one of the most healthy dishes in Chinese cuisine, and is centuries old — with many versions. This is a Hakka recipe from my family.
The dish is served daily to Chinese women for one month after childbirth for its curative powers. The chicken and eggs restore strength, while the delicious taste of ginger cooked with wine cheers up new mothers (and fathers!)
