2 cloves of garlic, chopped

1 table spoon of peanut sauce
1 1/2 table spoon of sesame sauce
1 table spoon of light soy sauce
1 table of cooking wine
1/2 table spoon of salt
2 table spoon of chili oil


1. Rinse chicken inside and out;
2. Bring water with 1/2 table spoon of salt,scallions,and ginger to a boil in a deep stockpot. Add cooking wine and chicken, then reduce heat and simmer, covered, until chicken is cooked through;
3. Remove chicken from pot and rinse it with cold water until it cool;
4. Then cut and serve chicken in a large bowl, mix all the sauce ingredients and add to the bowl;
5. Sprinkle with sesame, parsley, and garlic;
