salt chicken

Leaf wrap salt chicken

Grandpa once told us in China, people didn’t have an oven. He made a salt chicken. He heated a heap of coarse salt and buried the chicken in it. It smelt aromatic but Dad complained it was too salty. Third Aunty Siew Ing made a salt chicken for me forty years later. I remembered Grandpa. It was Aunty’s secret recipe to make it less salty, wrap the chicken with the leaves of the vegetables.

That does sound good. Does it cook the chicken well enough?
