    Tips

    1. The specific time for immersing chicken depends on the size of the chicken fat or thin, cookers and the fire. Usually, immersing time is between 15 minutes to 25 minutes.
    1. To see whether the chicken is cooked, you can press the chicken legs. If the leg muscle is firm, it means the chicken is cooked. After cooking, the successful blanched chicken has blood in bones only, and no blood at meat or skin
    1. Using chicken soup or pork bone soup to boil chicken can enhance chicken meat flavor. For chicken soup, you can simply add chicken powder and water. For pork bone soup, you need to boil pork one with ginger slices for 1 or 2 hours to achieve the best taste.
