Yellow Glutinous Rice Wine Chicken 黄酒鸡

First time cooking rice wine chicken using my homemade yellow glutinous rice wine, it has no sour taste but sweet and nice wine aroma, yummy!

It is easy to cook this dish, only with few ingredients. 

I added the wine in two batches, the last addition of wine is to give it strong wine aroma. 

You may adjust the rice wine amount to suit your preference. Since i have kids to take this dish, so i didn't add too much of wine. When cooking this dish during confinement time, no water will be added, only added rice wine.
