The Story Behind Turmeric Chicken
The main ingredients of Turmeric Chicken are fresh turmeric, a whole chicken, peanut oil, premium soy sauce and fresh garlic. Rinse the chicken with cold water and pat it dry with paper towels and then place spring onions and peeled sliced ginger into the chicken.
20 years ago, a young, passionate gentleman came to Shenzhen to fulfil his dream. He set up a small restaurant in Shenzhen Shekou and sold his very own simple but good dishes, cooked with his very own recipes. Turmeric Chicken is one of his favourite dishes and it quickly became the customers' first choice. The delicious and unique taste makes the dish well known in the whole district.
It is the honour of Kempinski Hotel Shenzhen to receive the traditional recipe from the gentleman Mr Wang and that is why the Turmeric Chicken dish has become the signature dish at Kempinski Hotel Shenzhen.
