Salted Egg Chicken

This is not a trend, salted egg is here to stay. It's famously good on crab, snacks, pretty much anything fried. No matter how epic your Asian meal is, the salted egg dish tends to steal the show and what most people secretly save a little more room for. Salted Egg is addictive on most things, we admit that, but if we had to pick one use for it, this authentic Asian Salted Egg Chicken recipe would be it. Very few steps, minimal ingredients that when combined are hard not to be delicious and easy to get right, try not to eat it all directly off the pan before serving.
