beggar's chooks

November 11, 2009
It has been awhile since Mr H cooked this dish.... the beggar chicken can be steamed or baked as below....

  • 1 whole chicken
  • all kind of fungi - champignon, straw mushroom, chinese mushroom
  • water chestnut
  • sesame oil
  • chopped garlic
  • salt and pepper
Mix them all in a bowl (except the chicken of course!!).....Washed and pat dry the chicken, stuff the chicken's cavity with the stuffing... Wrap with aluminium foil then with dough. Bake for 2 hours at 200C.

For the dough: Mix flour and water and roll out into a pastry enough to wrap the whole chicken
