This is a dish that is supposed to be done with pork, but I nearly always use chicken. I think it’s nicer. But the first time I did it with chicken was because they didn’t have any pork in my shop at my little shop in Shanghai when I lived there. And I must have cooked the dish at least a 100 times with chicken. This is one of my kids favourite dish.
