• 芝麻油 (2汤匙)
• 植物油 (2汤匙)

鸡肉切块后,放入烧开的水中焯一下,捞出洗净沥干备用
锅中先下2汤匙的植物油,待其5成热时,再加 2汤匙的芝麻油。
待油温6成热时,放入葱、姜、蒜和辣椒。
待炒出香味来后,加入鸡块,翻炒片刻。
加入九层塔。
加入6汤匙的花雕酒。
加入4汤匙的老抽。
再加入4汤匙的生抽。
加入15克的冰糖,翻炒均匀。
盖上锅盖,用小火焖煮至汤汁快收干时即可关火盛出.
小窍门:
1.这道菜所需的主要调味品就是酒、酱油和油,所以全程不要加水和盐。

2.这道菜的麻油很关键,可以提香。

3.麻油不能油温过高,所以要比植物油晚放入锅中。

4.焖煮过程中,尽量少开锅盖,避免香气流失。

5.做这道菜须用小火焖,这样鸡肉能够很好的入味。火太大的话,汤汁马上收干,鸡肉不能入味。
