Spicy turkey


This spicy turkey recipe is derived from a famous Chinese Sichuan dish named Mouth Watering Chicken, which is of extremely good smell and hot taste.

In a pot, add water and two boned drumsticks (water level should be a little bit over drumsticks), bring it to boil. Use a small size sieve to remove and discard foams floating on the surface thoroughly; put in a tea ball, in which there are two star anises, a pinch of dry fennel seeds (optional), a pinch of Sichuan pepper. Cover and stew under medium-low power for 30 minutes or until an instant-read thermometer registers 160F. Don't open the cover, let drumsticks sit in the broth for 2 hours, so that the meat can absorb flavour fully.

Transfer cool drumsticks to the cutting board, dice and then place in a plate.

In a bowl, blend mashed garlic, six soup spoons' broth (about 2 cup), 1/2 tbsp soy sauce, 1/2 tbsp rice vinegar, 1/2 tbsp sugar, 1/2 tbsp salt, and 2 tbsp roasted white sesame.

In a pan, add some oil and heat under medium power. Stir in chopped dry red pepper, and keep on stirring until strong aroma forms. Pour hot oil / pepper mixture into the bowl, mix well and drizzle over dices. Garnish with chopped green onion.

The broth, can be used to cook very delicious soup after fat is removed.

It is drumstick of turkey. Pretty spicy... but you can modify the taste by reducing red pepper.
