Tender and Moist: Gentle-Fried Furong Chicken

In Food, Lifestyle

Gentle-Fried Furong Chicken is a traditional Chinese dish. It is named after the Furong or hibiscus flower because its delicate shape resembles that of white hibiscus petals. The chicken pieces are tender, smooth, and moist, completely different from the usual dry and rubbery texture of chicken breast.

Behind-the-Scenes:

This is a clip of Chef Bi Kejiang competing during the 2011 International Chinese Culinary Competition in Times Square. Five mobile kitchens were custom built specifically to accommodate Chinese cooking requirements.

It happened to be raining very hard during the competition that day, but the competition carried on. Chef Bi had excellent performance despite all the pressure from cooking in the middle of Times Square – the busiest place in NYC, limited time to finish all the required dishes, unfamiliar kitchen set up, and the bad weather.
