Chicken Char Siew ~ 鸡肉叉烧


I've made BBQ pork Char Siew before but this is my first attempt at making 'Chicken Char Siew'.  I used whole deboned chicken leg to make this with only a few simple ingredients which are commonly found in any Chinese household.  The result is tender, juicy char siew with exploding flavour and sesame fragrance suitable to go with plain rice, noodles or as an add on to fried rice.
