A Chinese dish which originated from Jiang Xi, China. It became wildly popular in Taiwan and since then it has become one of their most iconic dishes.
San bei literally means 3 cups of sauces – namely soy sauce, rice wine and sesame oil. The sauce is cooked on high heat with the chicken which allows it to be reduced and absorbed by the meat.
What follows is intense flavour and aroma coated over every chunk of meat! The Taiwanese version of San Bei Ji (3-cup chicken) also calls for basil to be added at the last step.
This finishing touch adds a refreshing herbal fragrance which is bound to waken up your tastebuds!
