Steamed Chicken With Shrimp Sauce aka Prawn Paste 虾酱蒸鸡

Photo updated 7 Mar 2017

Steamed chicken is the most popular dish in my home because it's simple and my son likes it. I only used fresh Kampong chicken (aka free range chicken) because they are skinny/ less fat and no hormone added. The best of all, they taste better. The drawback is the price, they are slightly more expensive than farm chicken. However, for small family like mine, it's still quite affordable.

This steamed chicken doesn't looks appealing but you gotta trust me, the flavour of it is just superb! Whenever I cook this, each of us finished one big bowl of rice in no time, really tasty. 


280g Chicken Thigh/ Leg/ Wings (optional: cut into chunks)
鸡腿/鸡翼 280克
