Instructions: How to Cook Drunken Chicken 2.0 Alvin

  1. In a bowl, mix together Chinese cooking wine, soy sauce, oyster sauce, sesame oil, garlic, ginger, green onions, sugar, and black pepper.
  2. Add the chicken thighs to the marinade, making sure they are well coated. Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes, or overnight for best results.
  3. Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C).
  4. Heat a skillet over medium-high heat. Remove the chicken from the marinade, reserving the marinade for later.
  5. Sear the chicken thighs, skin side down, until golden brown, about 5 minutes. Flip and sear the other side for an additional 3 minutes.
  6. Transfer the chicken to a baking dish. Pour the reserved marinade and chicken broth over the chicken.
  7. Cover the baking dish with foil and bake for 30-35 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through.
  8. In a small bowl, mix cornstarch and water to create a slurry. Pour the slurry into the sauce in the baking dish and stir well.
  9. Return the dish to the oven, uncovered, and bake for an additional 10 minutes to thicken the sauce.
  10. Remove from the oven and let it rest for a few minutes. Garnish with sesame seeds and chopped green onions before serving.
