Shanghai Stuffed Chicken

I got this from my online friend, Serena, whose family is from the Shanghai region of China.

According to legend, this dish was invented by a starving beggar who baked a chicken he had caught by covering it in mud and cooking it over an open fire. In this simplified version of the recipe, the chicken is wrapped in aluminum foil before cooking.
