Crispy Garlic Chicken With Dipping Salt
30 mins (prep 30)
11 ingredients
4 servings
Chef Vongerichten sells 60 orders a day of this supermoist Hong Kong-style chicken. One of the reasons it's so good is that the chicken is fried whole in a wok, yet it doesn't taste remotely oily. The other reason is that the chicken is rubbed with aromatic five-spice powder and salt four hours before being basted with a vinegar and brown sugar syrup, then marinated overnight; plan accordingly. MAKE AHEAD: The spiced salt can be made up to 2 weeks ahead. Wine: A fruity, peppery red from France's southern Rhône Valley will complement the chicken and spicy seasoning here. Consider a Grenache-dominated Gigondas, such as the 1999 Domaine du Gour de Chaulé or the 2000 Domaine Les Paillères.
