Chinese Ginger Wine Chicken 姜酒鸡 is a dish commonly enjoyed by women on confinement. Confinement is the period in which women go through for 30 days after the birth of their child. We Chinese believe that confinement is an important period because giving birth causes a lot trauma to a woman’s body, thus it is vital to nurse her back to health. This dish is commonly prepared during confinement because ginger is known to be good for expelling wind and improve blood circulation. But fret not, even if you’re not on confinement, it’s perfectly fine to eat this every now and then (in fact it’s a super comforting dish)– just not too frequent as this dish is considered too heaty for our body. To make this a complete dish, we added mee sua （姜酒鸡面线）to the comforting soup, yum yum!
Refer to the ingredient list below and watch our step-by-step video for your easy reference.
