The Best Steamed Chicken Ever!
How dare I make this outrageous claim, you ask? Well, because it really is pretty darned fantastic and living life with a little more confidence never hurt anyone, am I right? Okay, so I confess - the husband came up with this recipe. He made it numerous times, improving his precious recipe with every steam, sought advice from professional kitchen chefs and he finally perfected it. I am not a fan of steamed foods (fried chicken is the way to go always, thank you very much), but I have to admit that this steamed chicken never fails to tantalize my taste buds.
This isn't a "place-everything-on-a-plate-and-stick-in-the-steamer" type of recipe, you'd have to bring out the fragrance of the spices over a fire in hot oil before pouring over the chicken to steam. At the end of 20 minutes, you'll have succulent, juicy chicken pieces sitting gleefully (I can only guess, really) in a delectable, savoury, all-natural broth. You can have this Best Ever Steamed Chicken with a bowl of rice and a healthy plate of Nai Bai in Oyster Sauce, coupled with simple Black Sauce Noodles with Fried Garlic, or shredded and added in to salads or sandwiches (this totally works because the chicken tastes fantastic when cold as well). The possibilities are endless! Go crazy!
