Beggar’s Chicken

Beggar’s Chicken. Legend has it that a Chinese servant once stole a chicken from his master’s coop. Just then, he heard his master’s footsteps approaching. In a hurry to get rid of the evidence, he coated it with clay and popped it into a nearby oven. He had found a way to cook his bird and keep it and its aroma secret!

Sandra and I discovered Beggar’s chicken at a Chinese snack food fair. Here the chicken was cooked on racks inside a large pot. The spiced chicken is wrapped in banana leaves and then once more in an outer layer of paper and clay.
