I've first tasted this  red rice wine chicken 红糟鸡 cooked by my mother-in-law :D So I try to replicate the dish by using commercially made red rice wine residue which is readily available in supermarket. During my last confinement 2 years ago, my father also kind enough to homemake some red rice wine for me!! Now I've still 2 bottles sitting in my pantry :) After reading this month Malaysian Food Fest - Sarawak, I've decided to open a bottle and whip up this Ang Chiu Mee Suah which I've never try cooking :) In order to reduce the 'heatiness' of this dish so that my kids can consume, I reduce the ginger amount and replace the sesame oil with normal corn oil :) Verdict : My hubby gives thumbs up 'shiok', my girl : good yum yum!, my boy : the soup not nice >.<" hahahaha

you can opt to add more ginger if you want!

marinate the chicken pieces with red rice wine residue for extra flavour
