If you love Taiwanese food, then you'll love this famous Taiwanese dish. This recipe was my most tried and loved dish in 2013 of all my YouTube video tutorials. So yes, this is a good recipe. (Feel free to check out the comments from those who have made it.)
3 Cup Chicken is called 3 cup chicken because traditionally this dish is cooked with 3 cups: 1 cup of soy sauce, 1 cup of rice wine, and 1 cup of sesame oil ~ hence the '3 cups'.
This is probably my favorite traditional Taiwanese dish because the flavors really pair well together. It's savory, yet sweet at the same time. There's a slight hint of spiciness and also the fragrance of the red basil leaves. I like to serve this with plenty of white rice (I love having the sauce from this dish with the rice) and usually a plain garlic stir fry of an Asian vegetable.
Tip: Don't skimp on the garlic cloves. If you're a garlic lover, you'll love being able to eat the garlic whole! Just make sure to brush your teeth or chew gum afterwards. : D
