Cooking pickled chicken in ginger:

Step 1: prepare and pickle the chicken.

The streets are warm summer, the weather is gorgeous, and it's time to cook a delicious chicken in ginger. This chicken recipe is quite simple, but requires little attention. Let's start with the main thing, with broiler chicken. We take the carcass of the bird, if you bought it in a store, then the chicken is already peeled. If you bought it at the market, there may be small feathers on the carcass that need to be pulled out with a knife, pry off a feather and pull it out with a light jerk of your hand, then get rid of all the insides. Now the chicken must be burned so that it does not have thin small hairs. Remove the burner and turn on the stove at full power, gently take the chicken in your hands and turn it in different directions above the fire, so you singe small hairs on its carcasses. Then lay the chicken on a cutting board and cut it with a knife 2 halves. Leave the chicken on the cutting board for a while and cook the marinade. To do this, take 50 grams of ginger root, with a thin layer, clean the upper skin from it. Rub ginger on a fine grater into a deep bowl. There, using garlic presses, squeeze 5 cloves of garlic pre-peeled. Add 125 grams of soy sauce, 50 grams of sake, 2 tablespoons of sugar, 1 teaspoon of salt and 2 teaspoons of tobanjan. And a little about this magnificent seasoning. Tobanjan - Japan is its birthplace, and 15 types of various ingredients and spices are included in this seasoning such as: sea kale, squid, garlic, various Japanese fruits, salt, sugar, ginger, vinegar and much more. In principle, replacing this seasoning is very difficult, but it can be purchased at any supermarket or ordered on the Internet. After all the ingredients are collected in one bowl, mix them with a tablespoon to a uniform consistency. Now take a large baking sheet, dip the chicken in the finished marinade with high sides, rub it thoroughly with clean hands in the carcass and lay 2 halves of the chicken on it. This process will take you a good 10 minutes, but do not skimp on time, you can pickle a chicken and longer if you want to get an excellent grill. Pour the remaining marinade into a baking sheet, cover with plastic wrap and let stand for 1 hour, you can not put it in the refrigerator. Turn the chicken halves from one side to the other periodically so that they are pickled with high quality.

Step 2: prepare the pickled chicken in ginger.

It's time to cook the chicken. And now you have 4 options her cooking. You can fry it in a pan, with a little added olive or vegetable oil.

Or the most delicious option, cook this chicken on the grill, which we will do today. Preheat the grill. Take a baking sheet with chicken halves and a long fork with two teeth, spread it on the grill. Fry the meat on both sides until golden brown on medium heat. Make sure that the chicken does not burn and periodically at intervals of 2-3 times in 15 minutes, turn on different sides and pour the marinadewhich, flowing down into the coals, will produce steam and smoke enveloping the chicken from all sides. In total, such a chicken is cooked during 35 - 45 minutes.

Remove the finished chicken from the baking sheet with a long fork and allow it to cool slightly, yet hot food is very harmful to the stomach.
