Kajang Claypot Chicken Wine (Fah Tui Kai/Drunken Chicken)

I used to cook chicken wine using my homemade red glutinous rice wine.  However, this Kajang Claypot Chicken Wine is slightly different from my usual Sitiawan Ang Jiu Keh which we would eat it with Mee Suah.
Sitiawan Ang Jiu Keh which we would eat it with Mee Suah (click for the full recipe if you want to try this  popular dish of  Sitiawan, Perak)

The difference here is that instead of red glutinous wine, it used Chinese Cooking Wine (Hua Tiao Chiew) and it has big onions in it. This Kajang Claypot Chicken Wine is adapted from Y3K(29) pg 52 with minor modification.
Overall, it's very delish and appetizing.
Ingredients A : 
- 250gm chicken (cut into pieces and marinated with soy sauce)
- 1 tbsp deep-fried minced garlic (I used 3 cloves garlic but without deep fried)
- 3 slices ginger (I used 2 big thumbsized ginger as I love it with lots of ginger)
- 1/2 big onion (I used 1 big onion, cut)
- 3 tbsp superior stock (I used 1 cup of hot water)
Seasonings A: (for marinate)
- 1.5 tbsp oyster sauce (I omitted as I prefer the original taste)
- 1 tbsp soy sauce
- 1/2 MSG (I omitted)
Seasonings B : (to taste)
- 1/2 dark soy sauce 
- salt
- 2 tbsp Chinese cooking wine
- 1 cup of homemade red glutinous rice wine (my addition to the above)
- some sesame oil (my addition)
Method :
1)  Arrange ginger, garlic and marinated chicken in a claypot or sandpot.

2)  Add hot water and cover.  Cook at high heat for 5 minutes.  Then lower the heat to medium heat and cook till chicken is semi-cooked.

3)  Add dark soy sauce, red glutinous rice wine and big onions. Let it simmer for about 3 minutes.

4)  Drizzle Chinese cooking wine and sesame oil.  Stir and mix well. Bring to a quick boil.  Add Salt to taste.
5)  Serve hot with steamed rice.

Do enjoy :)

  1. Hi Ivy,
    Such a delicious looking dish! I love using this Chinese wine! This dish is so perfect for a family dinner!
    Thank you for sharing with CYB!

    1. Hi Joyce,
      Yes, this is perfect for a family dinner and my children love the gravy. Luckily I added extra glutinous wine to get the extra gravy.

  2. Ivy, I can imagine how fragrant and delicious this claypot chicken wine is! This is a dish that I would love a lot :)

    1. Phong Hong, this is very delicious and with the extra ginger and the wine, it's so yummy.

  3. Wow........ love this very much. how fragrant this dish is. i want the gravy much much more. ha..............

  4. I have all the ingredients except for the glutinous rice wine. Can I not add it and still make the delicious claypot chicken?

    1. Hi Nava,in fact adding glutinous rice wine is my own version. The original recipe does not require any glutinous rice wine and sesame oil. These are my own additions.

  5. Wow Ivy! I want the soup/gravy! Must be super flavourful! :D

    1. Yes, Alvin. The soup/gravy is flavourful and yet my hubby commented that there's not enough rice wine in it. He requested me to cook again but with extra glutinous rice wine and ginger!

  6. Hi Ivy,

    I'm salivating looking at your claypot chicken. Can someone please pass me some tissue paper or a bowl of steamed rice?


    1. Zoe,
      I have extra rice and chicken for you. Just knock at the door and make yourself at home :)

  7. Hi ivy,
    I am drooling looking at your pot of claypot drunken chicken. Was wondering what is the taste with added big onion. But I know it will be very flavourful.
    Thanks again for sharing this to LTU;)

    1. Hi Mui Mui, this is indeed very yummy and with added big onions, it's very flavourful and we cleaned up the gravy as well :)

  8. Hi Ivy, This looks so sedaplicious leh! Can I come along with Zoe & tumpang makan , PLS! Bookmarking this recipe ! hehehehe

    1. Hi Kit, very sedaplicious. My door is wide open to welcome you and Zoe and the others. Just let me know and I will cook extra rice as well :)

  9. Hi Ivy, we always order this dish when we go to Kajang for Hot Soup, i tried replicating it and have been happy with it so far but it never occured to me it was done using this method, i stir-fried it :) I must try it this way the next time, thanks for sharing. Oh, and thanks for dropping by my place and leaving a comment :)

    1. Hi Adeline, thanks for visiting my humble blog too. I have wanted to make hot soup too for the Selangor Food Fest but just couldn't have some spare time. Will do it soon. In fact, your stir-fried is better than mine as it brings out the flavour. Mine is simple and fuss-free. Good for those who are busy and prefer a quick one.
