Steamed Chicken With Chinese Herbs 简易药材蒸鸡

An old recipe of mine was adapted from here. Unlike the 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 concerned 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 aluminium foil/ cooking paper (double layer). Wrap and seal, keep in the fridge let it marinate for at least 1 hour.

The gravy is so good to pair with rice.

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

About Ninja Foodi Multi-Cooker: The Ninja Foodi that I'm using is a combination of a pressure cooker and air fryer in one appliance, it's super-efficient and time-saving. Besides pressure cooking and air frying, there are other functions such as steam, slow cook, sear/ saute, bake/ roast, grill, dehydrate, sous vide, yoghurt, and keep warm. This cooker really helps in preparing quick meals without hassle which I would highly recommend to everyone who loves easy and hassle-free cooking with lesser pots and pans to wash.
