Chicken, Chinese w/Onions (M, TNT)
Source: "Frugal Gourmet"
Serves: 4 to 6

1 3 to 3-1/2 lbs. chicken, cleaned
2 bunches green onions (scallions)
1 tbsp. light soy sauce
2 tsp. salt
1/2 cup peanut oil, heated to smoking point

Fill a large pot with water and bring to a boil. Put the chicken in the boiling water. When the water stops boiling, take the chicken out. Cover the pot. When the water boils again, place the chicken back in the pot and cover again. Turn off the burner and leave the chicken in the pot and the pot on the burner. After 1 hour the chicken is done. Remove and cool.

Debone the chicken and tear the meat into small strips. Place them on a large platter. Split each green onion down the middle, then cut them into 1/2 inch pieces. Place them over the mound of chicken. Pour the soy sauce and sesame oil over the chicken. Pour the salt over the green onions. When you are ready to serve, pour the hot peanut oil over the chicken and onions and toss like a salad. I hope your stove is ready for Friday.
