The “Not Boiling” Teochew Style Chicken with Kai Lan

I was taught to cook chicken in boiling water until it was cooked, but if the chicken was cooked too long it would not be tender. It was difficult to control the timing. In fact, one should avoid boiling chicken in water. You should be placing chicken into boiling water, bringing the water back to a boil, then turning off the fire to let the chicken cook slowly in the hot water. Let the chicken continue to soak in the hot water for slow cooking. Let’s enjoy the common wonder!
