- Put the chicken, its liver and gizzard, the mushrooms, bamboo shoots, and ham, into a mixture of scallion, ginger, salt, MSG, pepper, suger, sweet and salty soy sauce.
- Rub the ingredients with the fingers to help the flavor penetrate, then stuff the chicken with the other ingredients but not so full that the chicken's shape is distorted.

- Roast the chicken over a fire for two hours.
- Take the chicken out.
