Steamed Chicken With Chinese Herbs 简易药材蒸鸡

An old recipe of mine adapted from here. Unlike those steamed herbal chicken served in the restaurant, this home cooked recipe is rather mild and sweet in taste. Kids will definitely love this! 


2 Chicken Leg (I use free-range/ kampong chicken leg with skin) 鸡腿 2只

*2 inches long Codonopsis Root (Dang Shen) 党参 2寸

*1 small slice Angelica (Dang Gui) 当归1小片

*4 Seedless Red Dates 红枣4粒(去心)

*1/2 tbsp Wolfberries 枸杞子 半汤匙

*1/2 tbsp Yu Zhu 玉竹 半汤匙

3/4 tsp Salt 盐 3/4 小匙

1/4 tsp Soy Sauce 酱油 1/4 小匙

1/4 tsp Sesame Oil 麻油 1/4 小匙

*washed & soaked 预先洗干净,浸泡

If you are concern about using aluminium foil in steaming,
you can wrap the chicken in cooking paper.

1. Mix all ingredients in a bowl. Make sure to rub the salt all over the chicken legs.

2. Transfer to an aluminum foil (double layer). Wrap and seal, keep in the fridge let it marinate at least 1 hour.

The gravy are so good to pair with rice. 

3. Return to room temperature, steam in a hot steamer for 20-25 minutes or until 'just cooked'. The steaming time depend on the size of the chicken leg, do adjust accordingly. 
腌好了放置室温,水滚后蒸20-25 分钟或蒸至刚熟。鸡腿的大小有别,蒸的时间可以自己自行调整。

4. Serve warm with steamed rice.
