Taiwanese Three Cup Chicken 台式三杯鸡

Photo updated: 8 August, 2017



This is a very popular dish in Chinese cuisine and it's especially famous in Taiwan. Many Chinese family knows how to cook this at home because it's as simple as 1, 2, 3.... The name 'Three Cup Chicken' tells the recipes: 1 cup soy sauce, 1 cup rice wine and 1 cup sesame oil for 1 chicken. Sounds easy right? But it took me quite some times to get the taste right.



I have tried a few attempts with chicken and pork. Followed the original recipe each cup of everything. Indeed not exactly 1 cup, I only followed the ratio but it turned out too salty and the taste....simply short of 'something'.

After adjusted the sauce, very much closed to the original ratio but I reduce the soy sauce by adding some sweet soy sauce, which also works by adding sugar but I like the sweet soy taste. Did I said the taste is lack of 'something'? Yes, I fixed it with Shao Xing Hua Tiao wine. The rice wine version is less fragrant compared to the Shao Xing Hua Tiao version. 

Now I am satisfied with my version of Three Cup Chicken. Yes, I know what's in your mind, how about the Three Cup Pork recipe? .....Well, I can ensure you that this three cup goes a lot better with chicken than pork!

Added some Huiji Waist Tonic in this three cup chicken dish to enhance the taste and nutrition.
Adjusted the recipe - use rock sugar instead of sweet soy sauce to yield the glossy finish. 

Taste wise, absolutely delicious! Click here for recipe >>
