Seasoning: Fish sauce, salt, pepper, dried coriander seeds

Put the chicken in a thick-bottomed pot.

Fill the pot with water covering at least two-thirds of the chicken.

Add crushed dried onions, one small ginger branch and one tablespoon of salt to the pot.

After the water boils, lower the heat and continue to boil the chicken for 10-15 minutes.

Turn off the heat, cover the pot with a lid and keep the chicken in the pot in for 25-30 minutes depending on the size of the chicken.

3.Shredding the meat:

Take out the chicken and soak it in iced water to cool it and make the skin crispy.

After the chicken cools down, take it out and add a layer of the turmeric chicken fat to create a beautiful golden color.

Discard skin and bones. Slice or shred the meat.
