Last updated by chinatravel at 2014/5/4

The dish of Sanyou Deity Chicken is characterized by the lustrous appearance and tender and soft taste.

Legends go that the dish got its name from Suxun, Sushi and Suzhe, the most noted poets of the Song Dynasty and visitors to the Sanyou Cave -in the sheer cliff of the Xiling Mountain in the entrance of the Xiling Gorge. Suxun accompanied his two sons-Sushi and Suzhe to Kaifeng (capital of Song Dynasty) to attend the imperial examination. As they arrived at Yichang, they were attracted by the breath-taking natural scenery of the three Gorges. So they stopped and took a short excursion to the area, which included a stay in the Sanyou Cave. They drank a lot of alcohol and eat the chicken they brought with in the cave. Afterward, the chicken Suxun and his two sons once eat was renamed as Sanyou Deity Chicken.
