turn off the heat and put on a tight lid. Leave the chicken in the
hot water for an hour, then take it out and leave it to cool.

Carefully remove the meat from the bone but keep the skin on; cut the
chicken into 24 pieces. Cut the ham into 24 thin slices.

on a plate, and steam for 10 minutes. Meanwhile parboil the greens in
chicken stock until soft, then arrange them around the chicken and

In a little saucepan, warm about half a cup of chicken stock with
salt, sugar, monosodium glutamate and cornstarch (corn flour); stir
to make it smooth; add sesame seed oil and pour it over the chicken
and ham. Serve either as a starter for a banquet or as a main course
for an informal meal.
