Alvin's Drunken Chicken, from MasterChef Season 2

Ever since Alvin made his drunken chicken on MasterChef, hubby's been asking me to make it... It's a simple recipe and because the children can't really eat the chilli spicey salad, we just served it with a bit of cucumbers.

My family usually prefer smaller chicken, hence half the liquid used...

And I was too lazy to go get some mirin so end up using a bit of cream sherry instead, and added a bit of ginger and 5 spice to give a bit of extra flavour, with 2 tbsp of light soy.  Well, not exactly Alvin's recipe, but boiled drunken chicken is the first time for us, we usually do the drunken chicken the traditional way - marinate in uncooked wine.

It's nice though, and the sauce is not "drunken" at all, even Luke had some with his rice.
