Steamed Chicken with Mushrooms Recipe

Steamed Chicken with Mushrooms Recipe

Ingredients :

1 kg Small roasting chicken

6 Dried Chinese mushrooms

1 tablespoon Finely shredded fresh ginger

3 Scallions, sliced diagonally

2 teaspoons Fish sauce

2 Small glove garlic, crushed

1 teaspoon Sesame oil

Salt to taste

Good grinding of black pepper


Method :

Soak the mushroom in a bowl of hot water for 30 minutes. Cut and discard the tough mushroom stems. Slice the mushroom caps into thin slices. Divide chicken into two parts. With a sharp knife bone the chicken. Use the bones for stock, and cut the flesh with the skin into bite-size pieces. Put these into a heatproof bowl with the mushroom slices, ginger, spring onions, pepper, fish sauce, garlic, salt and sesame oil. Mix well. Bring water to the boil in a large saucepan or deep frying pan or wok. Put the bowl in the pan - water should come a third of the way up the bowl. Cover and steam for 30 minutes or until chicken is cooked. Check periodically to ensure that water has not boiled away, and add more boiling water if it is getting low. Serve with rice, or noodles.
