Chin and Choo from Ziangs food workshop are here to show you how to make smoked crispy chilli chicken just like the Chinese takeout is making it. We will show you how to cook this popular Chinese takeaway dish at home, its so easy, the recipe just calls for a 2 specialist ingredients, the rest are all things most people will have at home in the store cupboard. Personally when I make this I like to leave out the sugar and add more fresh chillies as I like my food hot, but that's just personal preference, I have had this dish where no sugar was added, but more the most part, they will be adding it, that's the crystals you often see on the dish.
This smoked chilli chicken recipe is one that found in many Chinese takeaways around the UK, although relatively new to our area, its been a staple in cities for a couple of decades now. It wasn't and still isn't on the menu of the takeaway I grew up in (no longer family run), I learned this for a takeaway I worked in while at university (nearly 20 years ago).
This dish has an unique flavour, one that's hard to describe, I feel likes its almost a fusion dish than a UK Chinese takeaway recipe, reminds me of salt and pepper chicken but has a Spanish or Mexican under tone, which makes it very pleasant to eat.
Ziangs food workshop are not afraid to openly use MSG (monosodium glutamate) in our recipe, and we never have been, we've been using it on here long before uncle rogers said it was good to use. We would like to help dispel the myth behind MSG and teach people that using it is safe. It's been proven so safe that there are now psychological studies on why people still believe the bad myths of MSG when for the last 2 decades the scientific and medical community have all said it safer than fat, sugar and salt. #MSGMASSIVE #ziangs #Ziangarmy
