Crispy Roasted Chicken with Spice Sesame Vinegar Sauce 麻辣脆皮雞

The crispy chicken skin is addictive, but the ma lat sauce with sharp spicy aftertaste does wonder. Loud applause to chef for putting extra effort in preparing this Spice Sesame Vinegar Sauce, something different from the CNY chicken dish we had in other places.

Steamed Eight Treasure Glutinous Rice 八寳糯米飯
