Steamed salted chicken 蒸鹹雞

Tuesday, April 01, 2008 | Labels: , , , , |

As the name of this dish implies, the chicken is simply steamed with green onions, a little ginger and is salt-rubbed before hand. For added flavour, you may add cilantro (optional) before steaming. The resulting chicken broth is very flavourful and in my opinion was the highlight of this dish.



2 whole chicken legs
2 stalks green onions
Handful of cilantro
2 slices ginger
1/2 tsp sesame oil
1 tsp cooking oil
Salt - about 4 tbsp (or to taste)


Rub the chicken with the salt. Place the green onions, ginger and cilantro atop the chicken. Add the sesame oil and cooking oil into the dish. Steam for about 20-30 minutes. Serve hot with rice.

I like simply steamed chicken with soy sauce. Sometimes there's no need for anything really fancy.

You're right WC, this chicken is already salted though hence I didnt add soy sauce, but simplicity is best at times!

I Chinese friend of mine introduced me to this dish at a restaurant called China First in San Francisco. I subsequently fell in love with this dish and have searched the internet for the recipe. Who knew it was so easy to make? The restaurant also had a ginger/garlic pesto sauce that they served with this dish that was perfectly complemented it. Thanks again.
