a friend bought dinner at 重庆烤鱼 on 18.7.2016.

one of the dishes was chinese wine braised chicken 黄焖鸡. the sauce was good but the chicken was dry & tough.

so i decided to make my own.

steamed chicken

i marinated 1/2 chicken in chinese wine 花雕酒, sesame oil, fish sauce, oyster sauce, corn flour & some good light soy sauce. then steamed in a steam oven for 30mins.

this preparation is similar to my very nice claypot rice. the chicken was very tender & smooth.

i then fried ginger, chilli padi, onions, scallions, leek & added the marinade from the steamed chicken & cooked the vegetables.

so i had a very tasty sauce & vegetables & a tender, sweet chicken.

anyway i think the steaming may not be necessary. important thing just to marinade the chicken well then cook the vegetables with the marinade & add the chicken & cook for about 8mins (for debone chicken in my case), wings & wingstick a bit longer.

the 花雕酒 & sesame oil flavours were excellent, and the leeks especially nice having infused all the flavours. i found that in the dish at 重庆烤鱼. that’s why i added leek to scallions, yellow onions & also some cut ginger & chilli padi.

i did this dish for a family dinner on 20.7.2016.

a very enjoyable dinner indeed!
