Instructions
 

Chicken prep

  • Separate whole chicken to breasts, thighs, wings, legs. Remove keel bone but leave bone in for parts. Do not remove skin.
  • Be sure to pat dry all chicken parts, then add Dry Rub to both sides, pat into chicken.
  • Add all parts into larger bowl.
  • Allow chicken to rest in refrigerator for an hour or more, 2 is better.

Marinade prep

  • Combine peeled and roughly chopped ginger root, garlic cloves & water and puree in processor. Add to medium bowl.
  • Add Maltose, Oyster Sauce, Soy Sauce, Hoisin Sauce, Char Siu Sauce, Showxing Wine and Sesame Seed Oil. Mix well to combine.
  • Once chicken has dry brined, add the marinade to the chicken, making sure to cover all the parts thoroughly. Once properly coated, cover with plastic wrap and return to refrigerator for 3 hours, or over-night even better, to marinate.

Let's Cook Something!

  • Preheat oven to 385°F
  • Add 1/4 - 1/2 cup water to sheet pan to prevent burning.
  • Spray pan racks with Pam. Arrange chicken on racks, and try to keep space between pieces so all the parts can get full circulation of air while roasting. Allow chicken to sit for an hour, to come to room temperature.
  • While chicken comes to room temperature, pour remaining marinade into a pot. Bring to a boil, and then lower temperature and reduce for about 20 minutes, to create the glaze.
  • Pop the chicken into the oven for about 20 minutes, until skin begins to nicely brown. Braise chicken with a coating of glaze on top.
  • Lower oven temperature to 140°F, and roast chicken for another 20 minutes or so, watching to see the skin isn't browning too much.
  • Remove chicken, flip the pieces, glaze all the bottoms of the parts, and return to the oven for another 20 minutes.
  • Glaze chicken once more, and return to oven for a final 20 minutes.
  • Allow chicken to rest after final roasting for 10-15 minutes before serving and/or processing for other recipes.
