Steamed Chicken with Chicken Essence

Recipe for Steamed Chicken with Chicken Essence

  • 2 Chicken Drumstick, cleaned and dabbed dry
  • 1 tablespoon Cooking Wine
  • a pinch of Salt
  • 4 pieces Yu Zhu 玉竹 (Solomon's Seal Rhizome), cut half
  • 6 Hong Zao 红枣 (Red Dates), sliced into 3 each
  • a small handful Gou Qi Zi 枸杞子 (Wolfberries)
  • 1 to 2 bottles Chicken Essence, depending on how much sauce you like
  • Salt to taste

How to do it:
  1. Rub chicken with salt and cooking wine.
  2. You can let the chicken marinate for half an hour if you like.
  3. Add chicken in a deep dish.
  4. Add in the rest of the ingredients.
  5. Cover with foil.
  6. Steam for 2 to 3 hours.
  7. Remove foil and bast chicken with the sauce.
  8. Drizzle with some sesame oil and serve immediately.

  • I'm using Sake as cooking wine. If you use Hua Tiow (Chinese Cooking Wine), there will be the Hua Tiow Wine taste.
  • I'm using (2 bottles of) New Moon Chicken Essence. If you are using Brand's, please add 1/4 teaspoon of sugar as Brand's Chicken Essence is slightly bitter.
  • You can also use Chicken Essence with Cordyceps instead for added flavours.
