4 chicken thighs (or 1/2 a chicken)-chopped into bite-sized pieces
1 tbsp sesame oil

1 1/2 tbsp Shao Hsing Hua Tiao cooking wine
1/2 - 1 tbsp light soy sauce or to taste
1 tsp sugar

(pic on left: chicken after stir-fry and ready to be steamed)
What to do?
Remove as much fat on the chicken pieces as you can see. Clean and season the chicken with marinade ingredients for several hours or preferably overnight in the fridge.
Heat the wok with oil, stir in ginger and fry till fragrant (but not crispy). Add chicken and stir-fry briskly until heated through. Dish out chicken and arrange on a steaming plate.
Fry salt fish with a little oil till light golden brown and crispy then sprinkle over the chicken.
Notes: If you don't want it too oily, reduce the amount of oil used for frying as much as you can. Always add less soy sauce first, the salt fish might produce saltiness to this dish and just add the soy sauce to taste after the dish are cooked.
Happy Cooking !!! ~☻
