Making Saliva Chicken

Like everyone during the lockdown, I am reaching deep into my inner chef and trying new things to cook. One of the new dished that I tried a few weeks ago was the Mouth-Watering Chicken (Kou Shui Ji, 口水雞). Direct translation sometimes call it “Saliva Chicken”? …. Mouth-Watering Chicken sounds much better. Anyways, it is a super simple Chinese dish. I saw it of course on youtube and I gave it a try.

My first attempt was super successful (See Below). So my second attempt I decided to make it into a youtube video.

The second attempt (see below) is more of a practice and testing of multi-camera filming and also playing with video editing. It was alot of fun making it, so take a look.

Anyways…. my updated recipe are as follows
