Why is this chicken named after being drunk? According to legend, Huangdi Xuanyuan visited Bashan and rested at Jinyun's home. Jinyun quickly killed a few local chickens for cooking, and mistakenly used rice wine as a condiment in a panic. What is pleasantly surprised is that the fragrant wine and the chicken aroma are fused together, and the smell is overflowing. After the cooking, the chicken still has an attractive fragrance, which makes people's appetites great. After Xuanyuan Huangdi tasted it, he praised it: "Roasted chicken with rice wine, delicious taste". In this regard, the "Jinyun Drunken Chicken" came out, and later generations continued to improve it. The Jinyun Drunken Chicken has only been passed down to this day.
Jinyun Alcohol Chicken is a special delicacy that is as famous as Nanshan Spring Water Chicken, Geleshan Spicy Chicken, and Tieshanping Pepper Chicken. The four brothers have jointly supported the famous "Bayu Four Chickens".
