This is the description I found after a quick search on google.com -

"The San Pei Chicken was an unexpected success. For such a simple recipe, it was one of the tastiest dishes on the table. All it took to prepare were two chicken leg quarters and equal parts of sesame oil, soy sauce and rice wine, simmered for 6 hours in the crock pot the night before. To prepare for serving, I thickened the sauce with a little cornstarch in a saucepan on the stove, and baked the chicken legs in the oven for half an hour. The sauce made a lovely brown glaze with a surprisingly complex flavor."

I have not seen it on menus of restaurants I have been to. Oriental, do you cook San Pei Chicken?

Hi Oriental,
Also I love the san pei chicken (3 cup chicken), sometimes its cooked with the chicken a bit tough, but I love the fresh basil thats used by the handful. Any chance you can put up more detailed cooking instuctions?

I noticed you were from Taiwan (another thread asking about nightlife) . I too live in Taiwan and the food is outstanding. Really so many different types of dishes cooked in so many styles the only kind of food that might be dificult to find is the Chinese food served in western countries

In England they cook everything sweet and sour (and a really horrible sweet and sour with tomato ketchup), I once ordered gung pau chicken which came back sweet and sour, the states do gung pau a bit better, but I have never seen it cooked with 40 - 50 dried spicy hot chillies with the oil from the chillies forming a delicious goo on the chicken.

Here's one of my favorites, its a rib dish and I'll just write it how it is pronounced," jin du pi goo". Golden pork ribs, a little sweet. A place nearby where I live does this excellently.
