Chicken Bak Kwa – Chinese Style jerky

Today is the eve of the Lunar New Year. And inspired by my friend (who’s Chinese but living in Germany) chicken Bak kwa, I decided to try and make too.

I didn’t know it’s so easy to make. The Chinese here will spend hundreds of dollars buying this staple for the New Year. I decided to follow my friend’s recipe, which uses chicken.

In a bowl, mix 150g sugar, 2tbsp fish sauce, 2 tbsp soy sauce, 1/2 tsp five spice powder, 1/2 tsp salt, 1 tsp sesame oil. Add a few drops of red food colouring.
Add 600g of minced chicken place in a container and refrigerate overnight.
The next day, line an oven tray with baking greaseproof paper. And then spread the meat mixture thin.
Bake at 150 degrees Celcius for about an hour. Take it out and cut into pieces.
Best served warm.

Happy Lunar New Year to all my Chinese friends! Gong Ci Fa Cai! Xin Nian Kuai Le!
