1 whole chicken breast left on the bone
1/4 cup coarse salt
2 Tablespoons oil
1 teaspoon five spice powder
3 slices fresh ginger, smashed
2 shallots, minced
2 cloves fresh garlic, peeled and minced
2 scallions, minced
1/2 cup chicken broth
1 sprig fresh coriander, minced very coarsely
1. Boil chicken breast covered with cold water for half an hour, then remove it, discard the water, and let it cool. When cool, soak it in one quart of water mixed with the salt, covered, and refrigerated for two hours.
2. Chop chicken and set it out in a low-sided bowl or on a platter.
3. Heat oil, add the five spice powder, and stir-fry for one minute. Then add the ginger, shallots, garlic, and scallions and continue to stir-fry for one to two minutes, but do be careful not to burn these ingredients.
4. Add chicken broth, remove it from the heat source and pour it over the cold chicken. Sprinkle the minced coriander on top, and serve.
