Qin’s Chinese Chicken Barbecue
About this recipe
Source of the recipeI've got this recipe since I met my dear Chinese friend Qin, a lovely girl who was a work colleague as I decided to take an engineering job in Germany, Baden Wurtemberg, south of Stuttgart.
I am not going to lie : my years in Germany were miserable. I'm not a German hater, I like their discipline, but honestly, between the cold weather, the miserable local cuisine, and sometimes cold German people (not all of them I have to say), my life was not as good as my life in California.
However, in this cold Germany, I met a warm Chinese Sun, my friend Qin, who seemed even more desperate to be in Germany.
And so Qin ws trying to make the best of her life, and she brought me to the finest Chinese restaurants, where I discovered true Chinese food, and she then taught me a few recipes from her native China. This is one of the recipes I have kept preciously.
My friend Qin taught me how she was making her Chinese BBQ Chicken, and not only were they delicious, they were also so simple to prepare !
Who would have thought that a Chinese friend would teach me great barbecues in... Germany ??
And since I have the recipe, I keep BBQ'ig those Chicken, but also other meats like Porc, and it's a delight that my guest love everytime

Asian IngredientsI urge you to buy Chinese ingredients in an Asian supermarket, and not at your local store. Not only it is one secret that will make your recipe taste really good like in restaurants, but it is also often cheaper...
In the States, it has become quite easy to find Asian stores. In California, it's so easy we have even Chinese chains like 99 Ranch markets.
