To help sooth a sickly Greedy Rat, the Cooking Rat made me this beautiful Ottelenghi chicken dish. It’s really a spiky version of “Jewish mother” chicken soup…
Served with Chinese tea and Screwdrivers (for the vitamin C, of course!)

Ingredients
Guardian recipe

The chicken
We used a 100 day old pullet as it lends itself to poaching slowly.
Use the ginger & spring onion peelings to stuff the chicken.
Poach the chicken in water, more spring onion & ginger (we added a little salt too).
Skim regularly.

Crispy shallot
Fry finely sliced shallot covered in oil on a low to moderate heat until brown. Remove with fork and place on kitchen towel to drain oil (from painful experience, one should NOT lick the fork!)

Prepare the rice for cooking
We added some shallot oil as well as butter, this is it before the stock is added to cook.
